Plan Your Visit
Welcome to Glacier Bay!
If you've ever dreamed of the ice age and wondered how our planet might have looked as it emerged from the grip of massive glaciers, pondered how a river of ice could carve mountains into flour, or wanted to watch the birth of an iceberg, then Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve is the place for you! Your visit might include a glimpse of a rare bird, or the howl of a wolf. Perhaps you will join a park ranger for a guided walk through a temperate forest. Or it might be a day sailing up to a massive tidewater glacier.
This website is filled with information to help you learn about this place and plan your trip. For more information, please contact us. You might also contact the many commercial businesses that offer visitor services in and around the park. For recent happenings, it is fun to connect with us through social media.
