Tour Details

Juneau is one of the most unique state Capitals in the entire United States. Although Juneau isnít an island, it is land locked and you can only get to it by air or sea.

Your tour begins in the historical downtown district. You will drive through downtown where you will see the streets lined with gift shops, jewelry shops, king crab shacks and local fish restaurants. The tour will take you right by the Governorís Mansion, Alaska State Capitol and world famous Red Dog Saloon.

Departing the downtown area, you will make your way north to the valley area and the Mendenhall Glacier. Along the way you will see boat harbors full of Alaskan fishing boats, boathouses and the Mendenhall Wetland Refuge. On clear days you can see the majestic Chilkat Mountains in the distance.

Once you arrive at this park, you will have some time to walk around the Visitor Center, which has an elevated view of the glacier. The Visitorís Center hosts exhibits as well as a short film about the Juneau Ice Fields. Admission to the visitor center is included in the price of the tour.

For those guests feeling more adventurous, there are several short hiking paths and walking trails around the lake area including Photo Point Trail, which winds along Mendenhall Lake to an unobstructed view of the glacier face. At the appointed time, meet your guide for the trip back to town.

The tour comes to an end with a stop at famous Douglas Island, a historic mining community, for photo opportunities and panoramic views across the ocean to downtown Juneau.
