About this Juneau tour
Not all who wander are lost, but you definitely won't be getting lost today, thanks to your pre-programmed GPS – it'll expertly guide you to your Juneau destinations, so you can sit back, relax, and just take it all in. And with so much to see in Juneau, the toughest part will be deciding what to explore next.
Alaska's capital city is a gold mine of natural beauty and earthly wealth. Founded by gold rush pioneers in the late 19th century, the city flourished thanks to golden nuggets scattered just under Juneau's rugged surface. Almost a hundred years later, Alaskans struck oil, kicking off the Black Gold Rush and a new crop of "gold-diggers," to boot.
You're free to explore Juneau pioneer-style today, unlocking its treasures at every frontier. Visit the Last Chance Mining Museum, the only historic mining museum open to the public, and imagine how Alaskans spent their days toiling away in search of gilded riches at the Gastineau Channel. Or just take a walk along the striking Channel or the Tongass Rainforest; after all, Alaska is rich in more than gold – it's quite green, too.
And sometimes blue, especially if you visit the mammoth Mendenhall Glacier, a 3,000-year old icy whale and the star attraction in a 1,500-acre ice field of blue ridges and crystalline snow. You can park your car and wander the Visitor's Park, take a brisk hike along the park's nature trails, or just admire the hues. You won't be the first to blaze Juneau's trail, but venturing on your own is the best way to do it.
Into the wild
Alaska has always drawn adventure-seekers looking to become one with nature, like infamous wanderer Christopher McCandless – his final stop was in the Alaskan forest. Thankfully you won't have to worry about starving with so many restaurants abound in Juneau.
Please make your way to Mount Roberts Tramway (490 S Franklin St.) where our representative awaits your arrival.
