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.

A great short excursion

This was a good day trip. The guide was very informative. The glacier and amenities are well worth the trip out there. Only reason it not rated 5 is there was not food at the Glacier and we were starving. But the walk around and views were great.

Was a very lovely place. The weather was also very chilly and wet. The other 2 excursions I went on had perfect weather tho. The whole trip was very nice.

Our tour guide was fabulous. He was informative and funny. The tour departure point was easy to locate and the pick up after viewing the glacier was on time. We had time for the hike to Nugget Falls and the visitors center, both of which were excellent. We did not get to view the city from Douglas Island as I thought was to be included but that may have been because it was raining and too foggy to see it anyway. I did feel the tour was a little pricey but still am glad we went to Mendenhall Glacier and really enjoyed the drivers commentary.
