Mendenhall Glacier River Rafting Trip in Juneau, Alaska

Float down a majestic river, enjoying views of towering mountains, verdant forests, and scenic wildlife. By the end of this picturesque Juneau shore excursion, you'll be one with Mendenhall Glacier and its beautiful surroundings.

Start your Juneau tour with a scenic trip up Mendenhall Valley. Once you reach the shores of Mendenhall Lake, protective rain gear and life jackets are provided. Then, it's time to board the raft! Each one holds up to twelve guests and is rowed by a professional guide. If you prefer more of a hands-on experience, you may request a paddle raft when placing your tour booking.

Glide along the iceberg-studded Mendenhall Lake, marveling at the famous 1.5-mile Mendenhall Glacier. Setting course downstream, the five-mile route will allow you to take in the spectacular views of the glacier and allow you the opportunity to experience short sections of class three rapids for a one mile stretch, which may vary depending on the weather. Keep an eye out for the photographer onshore snapping your picture in the rapids, capturing the thrill of your Juneau excursion.

Once the river levels out, soak in the views of the riverbank, lush forests, and 7,000-foot mountains above the valley floor. Your professional guide teaches you about the river's natural history. If you keep a sharp enough eye, you can see bald eagles, black bears, otters, seals, and salmon during spawning season. At the end of the tour, celebrate with an Alaskan-style snack.

Book this Juneau shore excursion tour today for an incredible day in Alaskan paradise. The breathtaking Mendenhall Glacier and its natural Alaskan surroundings await!

Reviewer: TDGILL
We had a great time on our float trip. You take a shuttle to the base of the Glacier where you are outfitted for your adventure. We hung out in the lake longer then we needed to. Once we started the trip down the river, everyone had a good time. We were seated in the front and knocked backwards by one of the rapids. It was fun and wet! The river did not have as many rapids as we would have liked. It is a nice trip for the entire family. The smoked salmon spread afterwards was delicious. We would go again!

5 StarsA great day in JuneauAugust 10, 2017

Reviewer: Cheryl Harger
Our guide David was excellent. We especially liked the fact that he is actually from Juneau so we got a local's perspective and stories. My only criticism is that it would have been nice to know that they provided waterproof pants and boots ahead of time, so we didn't need to pack extra clothes and shoes.

Reviewer: Tammi
We totally enjoyed our floating and rafting trip around some of the Alaska bays.. Our guide was very knowledgeable and kept us informed about interesting bits of information about this area. Also had a lot of laughs going through some "rapids". It was a trip well worth it!

The float captain was a very nice and helpful young Gentlemen. It would have been excellent to get a bit closer to the glacier.

Reviewer: Ann Sliney
This was a very enjoyable experience. Our guides were very knowledgable and the scenery was majestic. It rained theat day but they suited us with heavy duty rain pants and boots. You do need your own hooded rain jacket. The glacier was much smaller than I expected, a bit underwhelming but the scenery and the float trip was fun. Awesome smoked salmon spread for snack!
