Territories Alaska Southeast Alaska Glacier Bay : Journey Highlights





With its fjords, lush rainforests, and abundant wildlife, Southeast Alaska is one of the most staggeringly beautiful places in North America. You’ll have a truly personal experience in “Southeast” and Glacier Bay on this wonderful journey. Travel like a true sourdough by Alaska Marine Highway ferryboat to Haines, then raft through the Chilkat Eagle Preserve. A scenic charter flight takes you over magnificent mountain wilderness and delivers you to Gustavus, gateway to Glacier Bay National Park, where you’ll spend three glorious days watching for whales, sea otters, eagles, puffins, and bears, and thunderous calving glaciers.

  • Wilderness: Glacier Bay is part of the largest contiguous roadless area left on earth.
  • Wildlife watching: Watch for bears, moose, mountain goats, whales, sea otters, sea lions, porpoise, and seabirds such as puffins and guillemots.
  • Cruising: Enjoy a day-long cruise into the heart of Glacier Bay, and another special whale-watching cruise.
  • Glacier watching: If your timing is right, you might see tidewater glaciers calving gigantic columns of ice into the sea.

This is THE off-the-beaten-path alternative to the typical large cruise ship tours through Southeast Alaska! —Julianne Shuman, OBP Travel Expert
