Experience the awe-inspiring Mendenhall Glacier up close and personal on this Mendenhall Lake canoe excursion! Glide around icebergs that have broken off from the face of the glacier and take in the beauty of the surrounding mountains. Few permits are available for access to this pristine glacial lake, be one of the few to experience these spectacular views!

Your adventure includes roundtrip transportation from downtown Juneau near the cruise ship docks. A short drive takes you to Mendenhall Lake, where your expert local guide will brief you on paddling skills and safety. You'll hop in the traditional 28-foot Tlingit-style canoe that holds up to 20 passengers. No experience is necessary! The leisurely paddle around the lake totals about 5 ½ miles, and you'll make a stop and beach the canoe at the stunning Nugget Falls waterfall. Here, enjoy an Alaskan-style snack of reindeer sausage, a salmon spread, cheese and crackers, plus a hot beverage on cold days. In addition to the stunning scenery that surrounds you, keep an eye out for wildlife including eagles, mountain goats, and even bears! This Juneau Alaska adventure to Mendenhall Glacier is the perfect choice for those looking to get up close views of the ancient blue ice with a fun and affordable excursion.
