Glacier Bay National Park

Mountaineers Books


by Jim Dufresne

This guidebook is a complete backcountry resource for how to get to Alaska's Glacier Bay National Park and travel through it via foot or kayak, for an intimate glimpse of the outstanding glaciers and wildlife. This book includes detailed information on hiking in this largely treeless area, best times to go, weather, bears, fishing, wilderness camping, and getting around. Route descriptions include (1) all areas reachable only by kayak, detailing both paddling routes and hikes; and (2) all areas accessible by foot from the visitor's lodge, by tour ships, or by float plane that offer more than a day's hiking.
