Prince William Sound | Prince William Sound Alaska Glacier at Sunset

There's a classic image of Alaska that people often picture, and it's one of Prince William Sound. 

Here, huge chunks of ice crash into deep blue fjords, breathtaking coastlines merge with rainforest-covered mountains and down to earth locals are at one with the wildlife. 

Both prevalent and abundant, it isn't uncommon to see whales, sea lions, harbour seals, Dall sheep, mountain goats and bears in the region. 

Prince William Sound INTRODUCTION

Located on the Gulf of Alaska, Prince WIlliam Sound is enormous – think three times the size of San Francisco.

At 70 miles wide from East to West, it houses a huge array of glaciers, dense spruce forests, and abundant wildlife just waiting to be photographed.

Combine your Alaska Rail vacation with a cruise through the sound and you'll witness the first buds of spring, baby sea otters, transit pods of whales and migratory birds arriving to hatch their young.

Available from May to October, you can also schedule a cruise to take in a landscape highlighted by golden tones and ruby red foliage.
