Glacier Bay National Park
Glacier Bay is located 60 mi. north-west of Juneau. It is an inlet between two promontories where 16 glaciers reach down to the sea. There are cruises to the bay which consist of day trips and longer or if you prefer, in the course of which whales are sometimes seen. Flights to the area are also available.The area that is now Glacier Bay was once a huge glacier in the mid 1800's. Ice was everywhere, and in some areas it was thousands of feet thick.
