Glacier Bay National Park

Glacier Bay National Park

Nestled in Alaska’s heartland, just west of Juneau, lies Glacier Bay, one of the most visited National Parks in North America. Covering over three million acres, Glacier Bay National Park is home to a variety of animal species such as brown bears, sea otters, bald eagles, whales, orcas and more. Needless to say, it is a thriving metropolis of marine and land animals.

The best way to visit Glacier Bay is to take an Alaska cruise. Many cruise ships dedicate one day to sail along Alaska’s Inside Passage to allow cruise passengers a glimpse into the National Park’s stunning wilderness. Glacier Bay is one of the best glacier viewing experiences and a cruise highlight for many tourists.

Glacier Bay National Park is one of the Getaway Guru’s favorite areas in all North America. He believes that the best day to visit a glacier is when the weather is overcast. This allows cruise passengers to get a better view of the blue hues bursting through the ice formations.
