On this tour in Juneau, your professional guide provides insightful narration on Juneau's gold rush history as you travel to Mendenhall Glacier. This stunning destination is encompassed by a winding river of compressed blue ice, ranked as the largest accessible glacier by road in Southeast Alaska. The beautiful natural wonder runs half a mile wide and hundreds of feet deep, fed by the 1,500 square-mile Juneau Icefield.

The U.S. Forest Service staff offers a wealth of information on glaciers during your Juneau excursion. The Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center features interesting exhibits, interactive videos, and a gorgeous panoramic view of the glacier. This is the perfect time to bring out your camera; the visitor center offers an ideal vantage point for capturing the world-famous sight. Numerous self-guided walking trails can be explored to experience the serenity of Tongass National Forest.

You'll probably be feeling hungry by now. It's time for an all-you-can-eat Alaskan feast. Featured on Bravo Television's Top Chef, Gold Creek Salmon Bake is a delicious event grilled to perfection for over 38 years. Savor the aroma of wild Alaskan salmon grilling over a fragrant alder wood fire--the event's signature entree. The delectable food spread has options for everyone; choose from a variety of Alaskan entrees, sides, and blueberry cake for dessert.

Relax in the event's serene rainforest environment, listening to live Alaskan folk music. Take a short walk along a natural salmon-spawning creek to the entrance of Wagner Mine at the breathtaking Salmon Creek Falls, where you can pan for gold, see mining relics, and look for salmon. Roast marshmallows over a campfire and take photos at an interactive gold rush mural.

The food, entertainment, activities, and ambiance make Gold Creek Salmon Bake a true Alaskan experience. Combined with the stunning Mendenhall Glacier, this is one Juneau shore excursion you don't want to miss! Book today for an incredible Juneau Alaska tour.

A very nice experience. Our driver, Fred, an Alaskan Native American, was a riot-very friendly and funny. The Medenhall Glacier was spectacular and the salmon bake was absolutely perfect. We had a great time.

Reviewer: Monica
My boyfriend and I loved this excursion! The food was amazing and the glacier was beautiful. It is a bit of a walk to reach the waterfall near the glacier, so I would be sure to give yourself plenty of time if you want to walk down. My favorite part was that we got to see a bear! I definitely recommend this for the naturist and the foodie!

Reviewer: Raini Gilmore
The glacier visit was awesome! A nice walk with a beautiful waterfall and breathtaking views. The nature center allowed anyone the ability to the views without the walk. Would not recommend the Salmon Bake, it was not worth the money and it was very frustrating to have paid for it but have our bus driver outright encourage people who had not paid to go for free since ""they don't check tickets.""

Reviewer: Julie & Chuck Wolfe
This was an awesome excursions. We did the 1 mile hike back to the waterfall it was very beautiful and we could not believe how close we were able to get to the waterfall. The food at the salmon bake was great, the only problem there was stopping from keep going back for more. It was our favorite on our cruise.
