Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Begin your day of scenic delights with a narrated tour of downtown Juneau en route to the mighty Mendenhall Glacier. Once you arrive, you'll have about 90 minutes to take in the exhibits at the Visitor Center including a short film about the Juneau Icefield. Enjoy a self-guided trek along one of the many picturesque trails or hike down to Nugget Falls, a double-tiered waterfall. Just when you thought your camera couldn't hold any more photos, you'll return to downtown Juneau for a journey up Mount Roberts on the Juneau Goldbelt Tram. Your all-day ticket allows you to visit the mountain or detour into town and ride the tram at your leisure. On the ride up, take in the beautiful views of the Chilkat Mountains, Stephens Passage, Douglas Island, and Silver Bow Basin. At the top, explore the trails, dine, shop, or observe local artisans at work.

Special Notes:
