Tracy Arm Fjord, Juneau

4.9
#2 of 140 in Parks in Alaska
At the end of Tracy Arm Fjord are the mighty twin Sawyer Glaciers, which are actively calving. You can see chunks of ice, some the size of a building, breaking off and floating in the water. Harbor seals, mountain goats, bears, wolves, and deer are not uncommon sights. Along its 48 km (30 mi) length, the fjord offers views of the surrounding mountains, with numerous waterfalls cascading down the cliffs. Take a cruise down the fjord, but dress warmly. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Juneau holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Tracy Arm Fjord and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • We saw waterfalls, seals, and glaciers. Great stop on our cruise!
  • Words cannot describe how beautiful this place is, so I am not even going to try. Safe to say if you can do this in your lifetime, you should. Just breathtaking experience that I shall remember forever.
  • This was a beautiful area to cruise through! Lots of floating ice, seabirds, mountains and vibrant water.
  • Breathtaking cruise. I wouldn't even try to describe. Photos, videos wouldn't do justice. A must see place.
  • One of the most beautiful places I have ever experienced.

Where to stay in Juneau

For easy access to the best of Juneau’s cultural attractions, dining options, and historical pubs, consider paying extra to stay in a downtown hotel while on vacation. A bed and breakfast or lodge farther out of town provides the great views and outdoor experience for which Alaska is famed. Before booking a lodge, check carefully how far it is from the city center. Distances on maps of a state and city this big can be deceptive.
