  • The glaciers and mountains right outside we're so absolutely beautiful! I don't know that they have enough parking and I found it completely slammed with people! We didn't end up taking a tour because of time constraints, but everybody was nice and helpful, and we found the area absolutely beautiful!

  • Beautifully situated, modern building with interesting architecture. Small museum with interesting movie. Restaurant and gift shop. This is where you get tickets for the bus tour of the ice fields. Don't bother paying for the silly walk out over the cliff by the side of the road. That spot used to be a free lookout until it was turned into a tourist attraction. There are plenty of free spots to get a thrilling view on this road.
