Description

Savor the rich beauty of Glacier Gardens and visit Juneau's top natural attraction, the Mendenhall Glacier on this approximate 4-hour tour.

At Glacier Gardens, you'll be amazed at the diversity of the rainforest. Stroll along paths carved from the mountainside toward the upper regions of the forest. This one-of-a-kind Alaska garden features towering upside-down trees covered with planted flowers. From the viewing platform at the 580-foot level, capture images of the Gastineau Channel, Douglas Island and the Chilkat Mountains.

You'll also visit Juneau's biggest attraction - Mendenhall Glacier. This river of compressed blue ice is fed by the massive Juneau Icefield and ranks as the largest glacier accessible by road in southeast Alaska. You can get a wealth of information on glaciers during your 90-minute visit to the glacier. In addition, the Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center features exhibits, videos and a panoramic view of the glacier.
