Glacier Bay National Park

Southeast Alaska stretches down from the rest of the state like the tail of a kite. It is a world of soaring glaciers, steep-shouldered islands, cliff-rimmed fjords, and snowcapped peaks. Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve, one of the region's most prized attractions, is home to the largest concentration of coastal glaciers on earth. - Copyright © 2014 by Fodor’s Travel, a division of Random House, LLC.
