Sitting on a peninsula surrounded on three sides by Glacier Bay National Park, the only way to arrive in Gustavus, a small town with fewer than 500 permanent residents, is by boat or plane. Once there, you can stock up on supplies, plan a tour into the park, charter a whale watching boat or just appreciate the solitude and beauty of such an isolated place. Wander the quiet beaches, gathering wild strawberries for a picnic, or sit on the dock, watching the sun set over distant mountain peaks.
