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 port tour 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. The 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 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 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. You will then arrive back to the main cruise ship terminal.

4 StarsNice tour just wish it was a little longerMay 02, 2017

Reviewer: christine
This was bus ride through Juneau to the glacier. The bus driver was very informative and pointed out buildings and suchr while driving. We only had a little over 1 hour at the glacier. The bus driver recommended taking the hike to the falls and back, which we did but there was not much time to dawdle. We walked fast to the falls, took our pictures and walked back just as fast. Alot of tours got there at the same time so it was very crowded in the visitor center area. This was a great tour for us, as it was not expensive and we relaxed on the ride to & from the glacier. Again just wish had more time at glacier. Driver was great. Good excursion for all activity levels as visitor center had a lot of stuff to look at (if you could beat the crowds) so those who don't or can't walk far still have a lot of things to look at.

Walter did an excellent job of showing us around Juneau and of the glacier. We loved it! Even got to see a mama bear and her cubs. Absolutely awesome! Walter is the best tour guide ever!
