Alaska's Juneau City & Mendenhall Glacier Tour

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

Great Driver/Tour Guide - Limited to see

Our guide was excellent. Very knowledgeable and entertaining. Was disappointed in the Mendenhall Glacier. Especially for someone with limited mobility (partner). Hike to the falls was fun.

So glad we took this tour! It ended up being the only glacier we saw up close on our cruise. Our guide ( I think his name was Jerry) was wonderful and told us interesting facts about some of the places we drove by. Can definitely recommend

Our driver lived off the grid, looked like Grizzly Adams, could deliver jokes like he was on the Tonight Show . He was informative and on time. The coach was comfortable and the price was extremely fair compared to other tours. I have no problem recommending this tour.
