Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve

4.5
Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve provides a glimpse of what much of the planet looked like when it emerged from the Ice Age. Here, glaciers still move from snowcapped mountain peaks to the lapping ocean waves of the Gulf of Alaska. The glacial ice has carved deep fjords and left behind pristine rivers and lakes. Humpback and minke whales and orcas traverse the frigid waters at various times of the year, while moose and bears make their way between land and water and bald eagles patrol the skies above. The park offers numerous ways to discover its 1.3 million hectare (3.3 million acre) territory. Many visitors opt for a park-provided or chartered cruise of the bay. Camping, hiking, backpacking, kayaking, rafting, and mountaineering enable deeper exploration of the park's wilderness. Glacier Bay is also part of the 10.1 million hectare (25 million acre) Kluane / Wrangell-St. Elias / Glacier Bay / Tatshenshini-Alsek World Heritage Site, which is one of the world's largest international protected areas.
