Davidson Glacier, Skagway
(4.8/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
Discovered in 1867, Davidson Glacier stands surrounded by forests and fjords which make the landscape striking. With time, the large glacier created a lake of its own inland among the mountains. See seals and whales among other marine life on your way up to the glacier, and admire the untouched lush wildlife on the shore. The path through the fjord is completely paved and secure. Make Davidson Glacier a centerpiece of your Skagway vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Skagway vacation planner.
