Cross over the Chilkat Mountains and explore the East Arm of Glacier Bay, including the McBride and Muir Glaciers. Discover the textures, colors, and light that make Glacier Bay one of Alaska’s premier attractions.

Beginning in August, pink salmon begin their run up the Chilkoot River to spawn. This is the best opportunity to see brown bears as they are often witnessed feeding along the banks of the river.
