Juneau Vacation Packages, Tours & Travel Experiences
Accessible only by airplane or boat, Alaska’s capital city is a gem cut between several taller gems. Juneau is cozied in between Mount Juneau, Mount Roberts, and the Gastineau Channel, providing mountain and sea views as you explore the winding streets of its pedestrian-friendly core. Marvel at the rustic 19th century architecture on Historic South Franklin Street, established during the city’s Gold Rush days and now home to local bars, restaurants, shops, and more. Wave to cruise ships arriving into the harbour as you embark on a whale watching expedition into the tranquility of open waters.
Only 12 miles from the city centre lies the Mendenhall Glacier, an epic terrain of bright blue that connects to the Juneau Ice Field, a relic of the last Ice Age nestled into the mountains. The river of ice brings you to glistening Mendenhall Lake, where you can glide in kayaks alongside chunks of floating ice while keeping an eye out for any wildlife, including bald eagles, salmon, and black bears.
Hiking opportunities are plentiful, giving you bountiful options to stretch your legs in fresh air on Mount Roberts or Juneau and any of its surrounding peaks. The Mount Roberts Tramway will suit nature lovers of all skill levels, bringing you to new heights and the Native Alaskan culture that awaits you above sea level. In snowy months, head down the slopes on a ski or snowboard, or cross the winter wonderland by dogsled or snowshoe for a new perspective.
