Juneau Sightseeing and Mendenhall Glacier Tour and Mt. Roberts Tramway and Salmon lunch/dinner
See the best of the Juneau area on this sightseeing and nature tour that combines historical landmarks with stunning natural wonders. Start with a narrated coach tour through Juneau’s downtown historic district and around Douglas Island, and then head up the Gastineau Channel to Mendenhall Glacier. During your free time, explore the area where the glacier meets Mendenhall Lake before returning to Juneau by coach. Then take the aerial gondola up Mt Roberts to Timberline Bar & Grill, where you’ll enjoy a lunch or dinner of grilled salmon while enjoying views of the city and mountains.

Meet at the aerial gondola station at the base of Mt Roberts to begin your Juneau adventure, which starts with a 45-minute tour of the city and Douglas Island.

On board a comfortable coach, take a ride through Juneau’s downtown historic district, nestled between the mountains and the Gastineau Channel. Pass by sights like the capital building, which dates back to 1929, and St Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church, which was built in 1893 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Cross the channel onto Douglas Island, a tidal island that’s home to a ski resort and the small town of Douglas. As you circle the island in your coach, admire views of the Juneau harbor and surrounding mountains and waterways.

Back on the mainland, head to Mendenhall Glacier, about 12 miles (20 km) northwest of Juneau in Mendenhall Glacier Recreation Area, which is part of Tongass National Forest. Extending from the enormous Juneau Ice Field to Mendenhall Lake, the glacier is 12 miles (20 km) long. During 45 minutes of unguided time, explore the area on the Photo Point Trail, which follows the edge of the lake and takes you to a viewpoint where you can see the face of the glacier.

You’ll get another great photo opportunity at Nugget Creek Falls, and you can visit the Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center for more views and to browse geological displays about the glacier’s formation. Park rangers are available to provide information and answer any questions. When it\'s time to leave, hop back on the coach for the drive back to downtown Juneau, where you\'ll be dropped off at the aerial gondola station for the ride up to Timberline Bar & Grill on Mt Roberts.

Sit down to a satisfying meal of coho salmon grilled to perfection and served with seasonal vegetables accompanied by views of the mountains and Gastineau Channel from 1,800 feet (550 meters). Your tour ends here, where you can stay on Mt Roberts to explore the hiking trails at your leisure, visit the gift shop or just soak up more of the views. Take the gondola back down on your own when you’re ready.

When booking, choose one of five tour start times to best suit your schedule.
