Juneau, Alaska owes much of its early history to successful gold mining operations in the region. The city was named after gold prospector Joe Juneau and is nestled in a spectacular setting between Mount Juneau and the Gastineau Channel. Juneau was established as the seat of Alaska's government dating back to 1906. Today, in addition to being Alaska's Capital, Juneau thrives on tourism with cruise ships making the city one of the primary ports of call for cruise passengers.

Juneau's sightseeing highlights include the Mendenhall Glacier plus a wide variety of helicopter and fixed wing flightseeing tours over the Juneau Icefield - some of which land on glaciers for guided hikes or dog sledding. For wildlife enthusiasts, bear viewing on Admiralty Island and whale watching cruises are also readily available. Our selection of Juneau tours and excursions depart daily during the cruise ship season May through September.

Melinda's Insider Tip

Juneau, Alaska's capital city, is home to one of the most accessible and beloved glaciers in Alaska. The Mendenhall Glacier can be experienced by foot, helicopter, and even dog sled. The Forest Service manages the Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center, the most visited attraction in the Tongass National Forest. At 17 million acres, the Tongass National Forest is America's largest national forest and one of the few temperate rainforests in the world.
