Getting 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 the Bartlett Cove area of Glacier Bay. You can click on the map marker to get directions from wherever you are. Following this is the official park map provided by the National Park Service. You can view either the original PDF file (sometimes very large files) or a simple image file. The map links will open in a new tab. Note that while this map is useful for general navigation around the park, if you are planning to do any hiking, you should really have a proper Glacier Bay Trail Map.
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.
