glacier, do u have to see them all or?

by 9tigers

I noticed that in Alaska, there are several glaciers that are famous, Kenia NP, glacier bay, Arm... are they all about them same if I for example saw Kenia NO already and took the day cruise trip? or they are all so different that I need to see them all.
then thing is if I want to go from Anchorage or Juneau, I would have to fly over and so far, I have not found a day trip cruise from juneau to glacier bay NP, can someone help?
greatly appreciated

thanks!, the prob that I am facing is that I have to go to Juneau to take a local cruise to Glacier bay, is that a true statement?

at seward, I can only see Kenai NP

If the weather is clear on your landing in Anchorage you'll have seen 20 glaciers before you step on the ground. The Chugach Range is full of them.
If you're time/budget is limited and you want to use Anchorage as your base, then there are several marine tours out of Seward or Whittier than will give you your fill of glaciers. Just my opinion....

RE: glacier, do u have to see them all or?

by Alaska-Bob

You don't have to see them all! If you can get close to one glacier on land (Exit Glacier in Seward, Byron Glacier near Portage, Matanuska Glacier on the Glenn highway) and one tidewater glacier which crashes into the ocean (Prince William Sound, Kenai Fjords NP, Glacier Bay, or Tracy Arm), then you've seen what you need to see. I wouldn't feel compelled to see more.

However, there are different ways to see glaciers (http://www.alaska.org/glaciers/advice-see-glaciers.htm) and you may want to decide how you're going to do it.

Travel Tips for Anchorage

Campbell Creek

by Scandic

This trail was one of my best friends in Anchorage, when I moved in there without knowing anybody. I lived very closed to it and soon discovered the peaceful trail with many natural wonders. I ran there some 4-5 times in a week, so if you noticed red-faced little blond jogging around (slowwwwly) in the summer 2004, it was probably me;)

Campbell Creek's northern trail head is located at 54th and the Old Seward Highway, next to Peanut Farm (restaurant). From here, the trail stretches 4 miles to its southern trail head located at West Dimond Blvd and Northwood Drive. The trail parallels the banks of the Campbell Creek crossing it many times, via wooden bridges, along the way. I saw mooses almost everytime I were there, also some salmons and rabbits. Campbell is not as pretty as Tony Knowles Coastal Trail, neither as interesting as Chester Creek or nothing compared to Kincaid. But it is an nice spice added into the husstle and busstel of the midtown itself. Along it is Taku lake, where is a good parking lot and it is a great place to chill out and enjoy beautiful summer day. But watch out of the bushes, those things are FULL of mosquitos with their long teeth...;)

The Log Cabin

by kaloz

Visit the Log Cabin, visitor information center. Located downtown, it will provide you with any information you might need, and there is an awesome piece of jade out front. Every tourist takes a picture, so your photo album will not be complete without a stop here. Anchorage is the biggest city in Alaska, but it is not pretencious. It still feels comfortable if kitchy. Enjoy it for what it is.

Packing List

by kaloz

When visiting anywhere in Alaska, there are some essentials: A proper hat, not a ball cap. Sunglasses, good shoes for walking, and raingear. Also recommended are wellingtons (rubber boots) Alaskans prefer xtra-tuf's

Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center

by HasTowelWillTravel

Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center (AWCC) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping Alaska’s wildlife, taking in injured and orphaned animals year-round and giving them a home. If they can be rehabilitated, they are released. If not, they have a spot at the AWCC permanently. You can also learn about these animals, some of which it would otherwise be virtually impossible to see in the wilderness on your own (and with time constraints of many vacations). Great photo ops.

Cost is $10 per adult, kids $7.50, or $30 max per car

Can your Fish

by extremist

Here I am canning the beautiful red salmon that I dipnetted for in the mouth of the Kenai River out in the ocean. Kenai is a 2hr drive south of Anchorage, and you must park and pay the toll booth, it was $10 to park for the day. Then you haul your net and cooler and snacks for the day to the ocean, pull up your chest waders. I brined these salmon for 18hrs in a mixture, then smoked them for a few hours to give them that great flavor then put them in jars w/jalapenos and garlic cloves and can them and enjoy your catch throughout the year!!
