Be one of the few to experience Juneau's iconic glacier up close and personal on this Mendenhall Glacier Ice Adventure tour! Your journey to the moving river of ice includes pick up at the cruise ship docks in downtown, transportation, waterproof gear and safety equipment, healthy snacks, and expert guides to lead the way! Everything is provided for you to enjoy an epic exploration of Mendenhall Glacier and Juneau's pristine wilderness. Your friendly guides explain how to properly paddle the canoe, then it's a team effort to glide across the lake past the stunning waterfall and right next to the face of Mendenhall Glacier. This journey is half the fun, but the up close views of the glacier makes the experience unforgettable. Upon arriving at the rocky shore, you'll have the opportunity to walk right in front of the giant ancient ice. Your guided trek will be on the moraine, which is the rocks and sediment carried down by the glacier right along it's edges. This glacier is receding quickly and is constantly moving and changing, so each day provides a new terrain and view of the stunning blue ice. Permits to the site are extremely limited, so if you have your heart set on a Mendenhall Glacier ice adventure make sure book this tour early!
