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!

Loved this rafting excursion. It was lovely and peaceful on the lake & great to see the glacier. And then we were off down the river. There were 3 areas where there were rapids and I loved it. I felt very safe and got what I thought was a good video of the rapids. I'm a 78 year old gal, so if I can do it pretty much everyone else ought to be able to do it, too. Our guide was great - kept us safe and he sure was great at spying eagles! I wish I could remember his name.

This was so much fun but I have to say we had the best guide in Dan! It was cold, raining, foggy and a very wet day! Although we were too cold for words the group we were with and our guide made it all worth it! We had some good rapids and I loved that we were able to help with the paddling. I think there were more people than expected so not enough hot apple cider or snacks to go around but again this excursion is well worth the trip and seeing the Mendenall Glacier!

My hubby & I are considered seniors. This was an awesome excursion. Our guide, Haden, was great & very safety aware. So glad we ventured beyond my comfort zone. Any one would be comfortable taking this excursion.
