Cruising to Tracy Arm Fjord

Located about 70 km south of Juneau, Tracy Arm is one of Alaska's most remote, untouched and spectacular spots, and is the place to come if you're interested in seeing nature in all its glory. Occupying the centre of the Tracy Arm-Fords Terror Wilderness, it is the type of place where visitors are regularly left shell-shocked from the sheer majesty of the surroundings, with giant glaciers, shimmering fjords and stunning wildlife among the main attractions.

Both Tracy Arm and the nearby Endicott Arm fjords are partially covered in ice, which breaks up to form icebergs the size of apartment blocks during the summer. Cruising down these serene inlets and catching a glimpse at these amazing frosty sculptures is enough to leave most tourists gobsmacked, although the real show begins once you reach the Sawyer Glacier - which sits at the end of Tracy Arm fjord.

Indeed, seeing the glacier calve, with a thunderous crash that reverberates around the fjord as chunks of ice tumble from the front wall of the giant structure, provides an amazing demonstration of nature's power, and is a sight that you certainly won't forget in a hurry.
