Juneau Sightseeing Tours and Activities

Print

Alaska’s capital Juneau is one of the most beautiful cities and one of the most visited places in Alaska. Downtown Juneau, densely framed by Mount Juneau, Mount Roberts and the Gastineau Channel, is a maze of narrow streets with a mixture of new buildings, old shop fronts and picturesque cottages, relics from the early gold rush days of the 19th century. The harbor is bustling with cruise ships, fishing boats and seaplanes coming and going. Juneau is the only capital in the USA that has no road access and can only be reached by air or sea. Juneau's vibrant downtown district, which is easy to explore on foot, is very popular with visitors. Just a short drive from downtown, you'll find what is probably the most famous attraction - Mendenhall Glacier, located within the Tongass National Forest, the largest national forest in the USA. Visitors can watch the glacier 'calving' and icebergs plunge from its front into Mendenhall Lake, hike or look around the Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center. Mendenhall Glacier is one of 38 larger glaciers that originate from Juneau Icefield, 3,885 square kilometres in area, many of which can be seen from the air on flightseeing tours.

SJU1002 Pack Creek Bear Viewing Tour to Admiralty Island

The Pack Creek Bear Sanctuary on Admiralty Island is one of Alaska’s most accessible, and yet most wild, bear viewing areas. After the scenic floatplane flight from Juneau, walk on the same ground as the bears. Human visitation is limited, allowing us to enjoy a wilderness bear viewing experience. Starting in spring, brown bears come to the meadows to feed and also to pursue mates. This makes it one of the best places to see bears during May and early June. While some Pack Creek bears head into the nearby mountains in mid-June, following fresh green vegetation, some stick around. By the end of June, bears are congregating at the creek, waiting for the first pacific salmon to arrive. From July through early-September, bears can be seen feeding on salmon. This tour is a premium guided and fully-outfitted package. Observe these amazing bears in the protected Kootznoowoo Wilderness on Admiralty Island.
Daily from May - September | Price: $789.00

SJU1003 Tracy Arm Fjords Glacier Cruise

Journey through one of the most dramatic sites in the world - Tracy Arm Fjord. This narrow fjord twists and turns for over 30 miles, culminating in a spectacular view of the twin tidewater Sawyer Glaciers. Your captain will navigate as close as the ice floe allows, stopping for an extended stay at the face of the glacier. Watch for seals relaxing on the icebergs and bald eagles soaring above the cliffs. Learn about the natural history of the fjord, glaciers and the wildlife from our onboard naturalist. Gain insights into Tlingit Native culture. Overcast days will not dampen your enjoyment as clouds and mist only heighten the drama of the fjord and intensify the glacial blue color.
