GLACIER BAY NATIONAL PARK
National Park Seaplane Adventure. Go deep into the wild to see the world-famous Glacier Bay from the air. Beyond the towering face of the glaciers is a dynamic land of ice, mountain, wildlife, and vibrant Native Culture.
Glacier Bay is vast and rugged. Most people only see the scenery and glaciers from the water, but our flight reveals how vast glaciers are flowing around the massive mountains. From the air you can see how ice has shaped this landscape.
The glaciers and mountains in Glacier Bay mark the transition from southeast Alaska to “the lost coast,” the vast mountainous wilderness of the Fairweather Range, the Wrangell St. Elias Range, and thousands of unnamed peaks and glaciers.
