See glaciers up close

Glacier Bay National Park in Southern Alaska is home to 16 tidewater glaciers (glaciers that end at the ocean), twelve of which are actively calving icebergs into the bay. Fly from “the lower 48” into Juneau, Alaska and hop aboard the Alaska Marine Highway Ferry to Gustavus where you can board the Glacier Bay Day Cruise, the only day cruise permitted within the park, taking you up close to these spectacular walls of ice.Alan Hicks
