Things to do in Juneau

With dozens of superb hiking trails and nearly no road system, this unique state capital is arguably the most beautiful city in Alaska. Surrounded by Mount Juneau and Mount Roberts, Juneau is a scenic departure point for a variety of wilderness attractions including Glacier Bay National Park and Tracy Arm-Fords Terror Wilderness Area.  The capital city is only accessible by boat or plane and is also the most popular port for Alaska Cruises along the Inside Passage, serving as an excellent basecamp to explore Southeast Alaska.

The city sits on the edge of the massive 1,500 square mile Juneau Icefield, which boasts over 140 glaciers and an accumulation of ice and snow greater than the state of Rhode Island. The most accessible glacier in the state of Alaska is the world-famous Mendenhall Glacier - just a few miles north of Juneau's bustling downtown where visitors can witness giant icebergs calving off the face and into Mendenhall Lake on a cruise or flightseeing tour.
