Juneau Excursions

One of the better-known Inside Passage ports in Alaska and the second largest city in the United States by sheer size, Juneau is a destination bursting with excitement. Shore Excursions Group makes it our pleasure to open your eyes to the city's history and culture with a wide variety of cruise excursions and tours.

Beautiful, serene, breathtaking. These are just a few words to describe Alaska's capital city, Juneau. Nestled tightly between the Gulf of Alaska and British Columbia, Juneau comes from a rich history deeply rooted in Native American tradition and features the most expansive and magnificent natural landscapes in the entire country. There’s simply so much to see and do in and around the city that this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Excursions of a Lifetime

Juneau offers a perfect blend of extreme and relaxing activities for any visitor. Get your adrenaline pumping by taking a helicopter tour, glacier trekking, dog sledding, kayaking, zip lining, and the like, or take in the sights by humpback whale watching, bear spotting, or rafting around Mendenhall Glacier and witnessing southeast Alaska's incredible beauty. Book a combo excursion, like our ever-so-popular Extended Helicopter Ride and Dog Sledding Tour. Get the best of both worlds, flightseeing over the Juneau Icefield by helicopter and then mushing powerful huskies over the ancient snowfields by sled dog.

Alaskan Wildlife Sightseeing

Inaccessible by any manmade road, Juneau is truly a haven for wildlife. Home to 280 different species of birds, five species of salmon, black and brown bears, and awe-inspiring humpback and orca whales, the city is undoubtedly a pinnacle of America's natural wonder. Excursions, like our Mendenhall Lake Canoe Adventure, offer peak sightseeing opportunities. Board your authentic Alaskan native-style canoe and paddle around Mendenhall Lake with a small group. Just keep a lookout for wildlife such as arctic terns, bald eagles, goats, salmon, porpoises, bears, and more. Then, experience Nugget Falls, a 377-foot roaring waterfall fronting the Mendenhall Glacier.

Experience Downtown Juneau

Experiencing downtown Juneau is a must-do for anyone visiting Alaska's capital and real easy. Juneau's cruise ship port is located at the south end of the downtown area. You can also find an amazing food scene downtown where you can sample local specialties like fresh seafood, reindeer sausage, or wild berry jams. Walk around the historic district to see well-preserved buildings from the city's gold rush era, and stop by the Juneau Visitor Center to learn about the region's history. You can also explore the surrounding art galleries and souvenir shops or enjoy the scenic views of the harbor and mountainscapes. Juneau is an enriching and enjoyable home base for weary travelers.
