Tour Juneau and the Mendenhall Glacier

Juneau is one of the most unique state capitals in the United States. Although Juneau isn't an island, it is land locked, and you can only get to it by air or sea. This exciting half-day program will give you an orientation of Juneau, and a visit to the Mendenhall Glacier and Visitor's Center.

Your Juneau shore excursion begins in the historical downtown district, where you will see the streets lined with gift shops, jewelry shops, king crab shacks and local fish restaurants. This Juneau tour will take you right by the Governor's Mansion, the State Capitol, and the 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 filled with Alaskan fishing boats, as well as boathouses and the Mendenhall Wetland Refuge. On clear days, you can see the majestic Chilkat Mountains in the distance.

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

For those guests feeling more adventurous in their Mendenhall Glacier Excursions, 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 Mendenhall Glacier Juneau excursion 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. You will then arrive back to the main cruise ship terminal.

Good city tour. I was disappointed that I couldn't get close enough to the glacier to walk on it.
