Glacier Country Gallery

Although it's unclear exactly how many glaciers there are in Alaska,it is estimated there are about 100,000. 616 of those are named.

In Southeast , you'll find Mendenhall and Margerie, one the jewel of Juneau , and the other in Glacier Bay National Park. In Southcentral Alaska near Seward there are Exit and Bear. Knik and Portage flow down from the Chugach mountains a bit farther north in Anchorage. Head to Denali National Park and you'll see the famed Ruth and massive, winding Kahiltna.

There are many ways to experience Alaska's glaciers firsthand: Flightseeing, guided ice hikes, day cruises, and even dog sledding tours. Seeing glaciers in a photo is one thing, but seeing them in person is simply extraordinary.
