Alaska – Fjordland

You don’t get much time for these shore excursions – in Juneau it was just 4 hours before we were embarking again for our next port of call. This time we didn’t have far to travel, barely 50 miles to a renowned Fjord, “Tracey Arm”.

We had a perfect afternoon to appreciate this wonder. It was reminiscent of Milford Sound which Jen and I had the privilege of seeing all those years ago on our first overseas trip. That fjord is considered one of the 7 natural wonders of the world.  These waterways are 1000 feet deep with mountains plunging vertically into the water on either side.

This fjord however is pretty special because you also have small icebergs floating toward you as you approach another impressive glacier. We seemed to get as close as a stones throw away from South Sawyer Glacier. As with Milford there are waterfalls and seals sunning themselves on the rocks.
