      Get set to go on the experience of a lifetime as you come close to one of nature’s best and most beautiful creations. The Mendenhall Glacier is 1.5 miles wide and hundreds of feet thick and is fed by the 1,500 square mile Juneau icefield. This incredible valley of compressed ice ranks as the largest, most rugged glacier accessible by road. Don’t forget to bring a camera along to capture the grandeur of this significant site during your tour. 

      As you travel through downtown Juneau, your driver-guide will share the colorful history of Juneau's gold rush era and point out buildings of interest. Alaska's capital city is always bustling with activities, even though it’s surrounded by rainforests, wilderness, and rugged terrain. Prepare to witness the raw beauty of Mother Nature, when you arrive at the Mendenhall Glacier, just a few miles from downtown Juneau. Go on a tour of the Mendenhall Glacier Visitors Center, where U.S. Forest Service staff members will share information on glaciers. Then, take time to experience this magnificent phenomenon from the best vantage point in the area.
