Welcome to Juneau!

IRONMAN Alaska - August 7, 2022

We are excited to host IRONMAN Alaska and to have you visit our destination! We believe you’ll find our mild coastal climate and the stunning Tongass National Forest (a temperate rain forest) the perfect backdrop for this premier event. Our back yard has more than 250 miles of trails, dozens of excursions and activities, all nestled in a spectacular fjord.

#didJuneau that Juneau is NOT on a road system? No worries! Getting to our off-the-beaten-path community is easier than you think, and Travel Juneau is here to help you plan your trip for IRONMAN Alaska.  As we get more details from our visitor industry partners, we’ll fill this site with information about transportation, lodging, restaurants, activities, and much more. For now, we invite you to our TravelJuneau.com site to get a sense of Alaska's capital city. Just remember that you can't actually drive all the way here! 


For more than 10,000 years, our community has been home to the A’akw Kwáan and T’aaḵu Kwáan, the indigenous people of this land. We are grateful to also call this place home.

The capital of Alaska is located on a fjord in the northern end of the famed Inside Passage, also known as the Alexander Archipelago. Of the 3255 square miles of our borough, only about 14 square miles are considered “urban.” We have about 33,000 full-time residents, and the community benefits from the state and federal government, the visitor industry, and commercial fishing.

You’ll find our climate moderate: we tell all visitors to prepare for rain and hope for sunshine! Summer temperatures can range from about 52◦F on some rainy days to  80◦F on sunny, cloudless days, so be sure to pack quick-drying layers for your day-to-day activities.

More information is on its way - if you have specific questions in the meantime, reach out to our staff at 888.586.2201.
