Mt. Roberts Tramway Tours

3 Reviews
Mt. Roberts Tramway
Rising 1,800 feet (550 meters) above sea level from the Juneau waterfront up Mt. Roberts, the Mt. Roberts Tramway is a favorite for those visiting the Alaska state capital. The ride itself provides views of Chilkat Range, Gastineau Channel, downtown Juneau, and Douglas Island, while the summit area features outdoorsy and cultural things to do.   
 
The Basics
Officially known as the Goldbelt Mount Roberts Tramway, the aerial gondola starts at the Juneau cruise ship port and takes visitors on a 5-minute ride above the rainforest-covered mountain to the Mountain House. Upon disembarking one of the two 60-passenger cabins, travelers are free to explore. Visit the Nature Center to learn about the wildlife and natural environment of the mountain, and then perhaps go on a hike through the subalpine meadow. For souvenirs and gifts, check out Raven Eagle Gifts & Gallery, which offers traditional crafts by Alaska natives. At the top is Timberline Bar & Grill, which serves locally caught fish, cafe fare such as burgers, and locally brewed beer. A ride on the Mt. Roberts Tramway is a popular shore excursion activity for cruise ship passengers docked in Juneau.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Tickets can be purchased in person at the tramway or through a shore excursion tour if you’re arriving in Juneau by cruise ship.
  • A ticket lasts all day, so you may spend as much time as you like at the top.
  • The tramway is ADA-compliant and can accommodate visitors with accessibility needs.
  • Hiking trails are suitable for all skill levels and include a handicap-accessible trail.
 
How to Get There
The tramway is located near downtown Juneau across from the cruise ship pier.

When to Get There
The tramway operates May through September and runs morning through evening. Go during the day for hiking, or perhaps in the evening for dinner and to enjoy the twilight atmosphere (remember, the summer sun sets late in Juneau).

Alaska Native Culture at the Mt. Roberts Tramway
The tramway’s summit area provides opportunities to learn about Tlingit culture and history—head to the Chilkat Theater to watch a short film produced by Alaska natives or catch a live music performance, and keep an eye out along some of the trails for interpretive signage and traditional tree carvings.
