Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve
Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve, as its name suggests, is a land carved by the dramatic force of glaciers. Spanning 3.3 million acres, the park is home to a dynamic landscape of shifting glaciers, rugged coastlines, wild mountains, temperate rainforests, and sheltered fjords. This remote park is a highlight of Alaska's Inside Passage and a part of a 25-million acre World Heritage Site, one of the world’s largest international protected areas. Visitors will be impressed by the vast and untouched landscape. From sea to summit, Glacier Bay offers limitless opportunities for inspiration and adventure.
