Plan Your Visit
Your visit to Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve might include a glimpse of a rare bird. Or perhaps a park ranger guided walk through a temperate forest. Or it might be a day sailing up to a tidewater glacier. Or the feel of the warm sun on your back as you raft a wilderness river.
First you have to choose the experience you are looking for. Do you want to spend the day visiting the glacier area of the park? Or climb a mountain? Do you have a few hours or a few days?
We have a variety of on-line information listed above to help you 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.
The Gustavus Visitors Association provides travel information including places to stay and things to do adjacent to the park. They can be reached at 907-697-2454 or on the web at www.gustavusak.com.
