Getting to Glacier Bay National Park

Driving to Glacier Bay

There are no roads in Glacier Bay National Park. The only access is by boat or airplane. Most visitors only see the park from a cruise ship.

Below you will find an interactive map showing the location of Glacier Bay Lodge in Bartlett Cove in Glacier Bay. Following this are the official park maps provided by the National Park Service. You can view either the original PDF file or a simple JPEG image file (some of these files can be quite large). The map links will open in a new tab. Note that while these maps are useful for general navigation around the park, if you plan to do any hiking, you should really have a proper Glacier Bay Trail Map.

Flying to Glacier Bay

A small airport in Gustavus (GST) has daily flights from Juneau during the summer visitor season. The Juneau Airport (JNU) in turn has some major airline service. Anchorage (ANC) is the nearest major airport and has connecting service to Juneau.
