Experience the best of Juneau - from Mendenhall Glacier to a salmon bake in the lush rainforest - on this approximate 4-hour excursion. Mendenhall Glacier is a meandering river of compressed blue ice that ranks as the largest glacier accessible by road in southeast Alaska. It runs a half-mile wide and hundreds of feet deep. Includes entry to the Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center. Savor an all-you-can-eat Alaska salmon bake, including side dishes and dessert. Listen to music while you dine under translucent domes. Afterwards, take a stroll through the woods, roast marshmallows over a fire or walk to Salmon Falls and pan for gold.
