Glaciers, massive bodies of ice, snow, rock & water, have advanced and retreated through the Skagway area for millennia. The mountains and valleys that surround us were formed by their movement. 

Experience these ancient rivers of ice up close with a flight up to the glacial fields, canoe the waters fed by the Davidson Glacier or hike through the Tongass National Forest to Laughton or Denver Glaciers. 

**Local tip**
Glacial viewing is often best on overcast days, so don’t let cloudy skies deter you from taking in their majesty.
