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 six-mile route combines winding stretches of Class II and Class III whitewater--enough to add adrenaline and excitement for experienced rafters, yet still appropriate for guests of all ages. Encounter memorable river features such as Moon Flats and Pin Ball Alley. 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!

Beautiful views of glacier and trip across the lake followed by a 6 mile raft trip down the river. Not exciting whitewater but interesting.

Reviewer: Dennis and Diane Combs
We had a fun time. Enough of a thrill to be exciting, but we were never in danger. Our guide and rower was Chris and he was funny as well as educational about the area. We even appreciated the snacks and hot cider at the end of the trip.

5 StarsA Great Ride!November 14, 2016

Reviewer: Georgia Roelof
We chose to go with others who paddled our way down river. It was great fun and we hardly got wet. Well worth the effort!

5 StarsShooting the rapidsAugust 13, 2016

Reviewer: Kiva Adkins
The whole excursion would have been perfect just at the landing to the lake and getting to see the glacier that close. But the rafting trip down the Mendenhall River was fantastic. And we have rafted all over the United States. This was definitely up there with my favorite rafting trips.
