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!

I took the Mendenhall Glacier Float Trip and couldn't have enjoyed it more. The Guide was very informative in all aspects of safety on the Float. Prior to boarding, we were given special waterproof overalls and boots. We were helped into, and then out of this apparel on our disembarkation. The staff were very pleasant on the bus to the raft and very helpful. The Float Ride was just exciting enough and yet felt safe enough to be enjoyable.

5 StarsRafting in the rainOctober 02, 2019

Reviewer: Jennifer
No surprise, it rains a lot in Alaska. Our day in Juneau was a rainy one and the rafting tour went on as planned. The clouds were so low and the rain was so strong we could barely see the glacier! There were 6 of us in the raft and we had a good time. Would have been better if we could see more but there was the rain... Definitely would recommend. Pick up and return to our ship was quick and easy.

3 StarsNice float tripOctober 01, 2019

Reviewer: M. Briggs
This was nice, but not as exciting as we had expected. Our guide was knowledgeable, capable, and a lot of fun. The rapids weren't anything to write home about. If you're inexperienced in rafting, you have more fun than we did. The area we partially rafted through was a residential area, which surprised us. The views of Mendenhall Glacier are beautiful.

4 StarsNice day tripSeptember 19, 2019

Reviewer: Dennis Gaschen
Our rafting trip was a nice day trip. Wish we had gotten closer to the glacier (or waterfall), and the rapids were a little underwhelming. We did get to see two eagles along the river, which unfortunately, runs along people’s houses… not the wilderness.
