Wish we would have known the 7 mile road to the glacier was closed at the first snowfall when we decided to visit. The stop came strongly recommended by family in the area who visited there this past summer. It was gorgeous in the snow, but we're looking forward to visiting next summer!

About the only way to see this N. P. Saw sea lions, harbor seals , sea otters, bald eagles and lots of birds. Missed out on the orcas though, maybe next time. No complaints. Would do it again.

This is a beautiful park and you can see the Exit Glacier as you enter the park. The drive into the park has lots of beautiful vistas and once you arrive at the park, you will have multiple trails to explore. Our visit was at the end of September and weather was beautiful and the crowds were non-existent. Getting to... More

We took a full day boat trip into the Fjord. Sea lions, whales, see others, puffins, and bald eagles were abundant. We heard and saw a glacier calving. It was truly amazing.

I got to see a real live Moose!!! I get that locals get to see them all of the time, but the only one I have ever seen was my grandfather's trophy in the basement. They are amazing animals, and this was before getting into the park. The hike/walk to see the current end of the glacier was very nicely... More

Hike and enjoy the scenery! The trail to Exit Glacier is very interesting if you take the time to go with the informative female ranger. She is very informative. It is startling to see the recession of the glacier.

I have done this trip about 7 or 8 times and it is always wonderful and very different each time. I have taken all of my visitors to Alaska on this trip and recommend it!

I had a good time on the short hike to exit glacier. It does have some uphill component. I liked the signs saying where the glacier used to be. Disappointing that the trail didn't go right up to the glacier enabling a more tactile experience, so if you want to touch a glacier, choose a different glacier!
