Discover the city of Juneau with a guide native to the area on this 2.5-hour tour that includes a visit to the majestic Mendenhall Glacier. Travel by climate-controlled van, and as you see the landmarks of Juneau, hear about the area’s 10,000 years of history, including the Haida-Tlingit tribe, the role of Russian, European and American influences, and the gold rush.
Pass over the Gastineau Channel for beautiful panoramas of Juneau, and arrive at Juneau’s natural treasure, the Mendenhall Glacier, one of 38 glaciers flowing from the massive 1,500-square-mile Juneau Ice field. You have a number of options to explore this glacier wonder. Inside the visitor center, browse through the interactive geological exhibits and enjoy an elevated view of the glacier.
Or, walk along the Nugget Creek Falls and Photo Point Trail, which tracks Mendenhall Lake to an unobstructed view of the glacier’s face.
Your tour concludes with return transport to the cruise-ship terminal, just a 5-minute stroll from downtown Juneau.
