Not sure what to do? Ask Travel Juneau.
Get a taste of Juneau in a day, or immerse yourself in all of its natural and cultural wonder over several days.
Your group deserves customized itineraries. Because of the wide variety of activities and experiences available to travelers, look to Travel Juneau for guidance and referrals. Here are some ideas to spark the conversation:
- Start the day with locally roasted coffee – two local roasteries and several regionals keep Juneau supplied with terrific brew. Locally-owned coffee shops dot the whole downtown area.
- Walk about 5 minutes (or fewer) from the hotel and spend a couple of hours at the new State Library, Archive, and Museum (SLAM), home to many of Alaska’s historic and artistic treasures. Walking from the dock? Allow about 15 minutes.
- Depending upon the size of the group, have lunch prepared by a nationally-recognized chef.
- All aboard for whale watching! Take a 2.5 hour tour in Lynn Canal to view majestic humpback whales, Steller sea lions, orca, and much more.
- End your day at the Mendenhall Glacier, one of the few accessible glaciers in North America. Take an easy hike to Nugget Falls, or take in the view from the visitors center.
TWO OR MORE DAYS
- Day 1 – Wow your clients with an all-day boat excursion to breathtaking Tracy Arm Fjord. Located south of Juneau, Tracy Arm’s sheer cliffs, waterfalls, wildlife, and up-close views of the Sawyer Glaciers will have your clients talking long after their trip.
- Day 2 – Spend the morning sport fishing for salmon or halibut – or both! Then, relax and brag about catching the big one at one of Juneau’s great restaurants. For an adventurous afternoon, go ziplining in the rainforest. Smaller (2-10) groups may enjoy a helicopter trip to hike on the Mendenhall Glacier. After dinner, close your evening with a stroll along the seawalk.
