Overview

Feast your eyes on Mendenhall Glacier and satisfy your appetites with an all-you-can-eat Alaskan salmon bake. After checking out the Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center, try a self-guided trail near the glacier. Then, dig into grilled wild salmon and blueberry cake, just some of the succulent dishes that you can enjoy. Roast marshmallows over a campfire, and explore the Salmon Creek waterfall and Wagner Mine, perhaps even sifting for gold on your own. Shuttles depart regularly, allowing you to enjoy this experience as long as you like.
  • Mendenhall Glacier visit and an Alaskan salmon bake buffet
  • See the exhibits and interactive videos at the Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center
  • Take photos of the immense glacier
  • Savor the smell of salmon being cooked over an open fire
  • Visit the Salmon Creek waterfall or sift for gold on your own at Wagner Mine
  • Shuttle-bus pickup and drop-off from Juneau port included
During the shuttle ride from Juneau port to the Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center, your driver-guide provides insight into Juneau’s gold rush history. Check out the exhibits and interactive videos at the center. Embark on the self-guided walking trails and soak up views of Tongass National Forest and the ever-changing glacier. The US Forest Service staff is on hand to answer questions during your visit.
 
Then it’s off to the Gold Creek Salmon Bake, an event that has been grilled to perfection for 38 years, located in the rain forest, under heated, translucent domes. Listen to live Alaskan folk music, and inhale the tantalizing smell of wild Alaska salmon being grilled over alder-wood fire.
 
Your menu: Alaska salmon, cheechako chicken, Chilkoot baked beans, Tongass wild-rice pilaf, Alyeska au gratin potatoes, salad, beverages and other succulent side dishes — are you hungry yet? Try the blueberry cake, and wash your meal down with beer and wine (own expense).

Walk off your hearty meal with any number of activities. Hike up to the Salmon Creek waterfall, or glimpse inside the entrance of the historic Wagner Mine. See mining relics inside and get into the spirit by sifting for gold on your own using a nearby trough. Back at the campfire, toast some marshmallows for a snack.
 
Afterwards, return to the cruise port using one of the available shuttle buses.

This tour was very convenient and low stress. However, wish there was more time at the Mendenhall Glacier park- there is a lot to see and the hiking/walking to the waterfall and glacier is beautiful. The salmon bake and live music was a lot of fun. The salmon was yummy!!

Glacier viewing site was ok- the salmon bake was a waste of time and effort- asked for veggie and food allergy safe food during booking but they said they never got the note so people were limited to salad and corn bread

We especially enjoyed the Salmon Bake. It seemed likel an old fashioned family operation and they were so welcoming to to their lovely location. Food was great and I treated myself to an Alaska Ale not on my diet anymore. The Glacier visit was about our speed due to my wife's health.
