Many who visit Glacier Bay only have a day or so to experience all that it offers. There are many activities in Bartlett Cove and the nearby community of Gustavus that will enable you to sample a nice variety of Alaskan paradise. Take in the sunset at Halibut Point, kayak through pristine wilderness, or expand your knowledge at the Visitor Center or Huna Tribal house: There's something for everyone.
Located just 10 miles away from Glacier Bay and Bartlett Cove, Gustavus is the only town with road access to the park. From chartering a plane or boat ride to hopping on the Alaskan State Ferry, most visitors get here by hiring a commercial outfit to reach the park.
Stay at the Glacier Bay Lodge or Bartlett Cove Campground to experience Bartlett Cove with ease! Adventure is right outside your door (or tent).
