Alaska Adventures

Cruiseshipgroup has been traveling to Alaska for more than 20 years. In the following articles, we share some of our observations, tips, and experiences in The Last Frontier. Paris has the Eiffel Tower and New York has the Empire State building, but Alaska’s glaciers rival even some of the greatest landmarks around the world in terms of statuesque beauty. Towering high above the surrounding sea, the glaciers all seem insurmountable… and some really are, due to their sheer size and steep grade. The best way to view these icy behemoths up close is by sea; a highlight of any trip to Alaska. Here are the five best to visit glaciers to see.

What to Pack for an Alaska Cruise

Possibly the most famous of all 38 glaciers that make up the Juneau icefield, Mendenhall Glacier is located in the Tongass National Forest–the largest protected forest in the United States. This is one stop where you can see everything up close, on land. Embark on a 3.5 hour hike to see incredible vistas of the glacier itself as well as wildlife, including the park’s famous beavers. But even if you don’t opt for a shore excursion, the bright blue ice calving off the glacier and drifting downstream is a spectacular sight in and of itself.
