Alaska travel guide

Alaska - Juneau & the Southeast (Chapter)

10th Edition Apr 2012

This is the Juneau & the Southeast chapter from Lonely Planet’s Alaska guidebook.

Southeast Alaska is so unAlaska. The Southern Panhandle is a slender, long rainforest that stretches 540 miles from Icy Bay south to Portland Canal and is filled with ice-blue glaciers, rugged snowcapped mountains, towering Sitka spruce and a thousand islands known as the Alexander Archipelago. Each community here has its own history and character: from Norwegian-influenced Petersburg to Russian-tinted Sitka. You can feel the gold fever in Skagway and see a dozen glaciers near Juneau. Each town is unique and none of them are connected to each other by road. Jump on the state ferry or book a cruise and discover the Southeast.

  • Follow the Klondike gold rush by hiking Skagway’s Chilkoot Trail.
  • Head deep into Glacier Bay National Park to see seals, sea lions and glaciers calving icebergs the size of small houses
  • maps
  • Zipline down a mountain and spending the afternoon viewing bears at Ketchikan’s Herring Creek
  • Transportation
  • restaurants & accommodation
  • Strap on crampons and hike across the icy blue world of Juneau’s Mendenhall Glacier

Coverage includes: Southern Panhandle, Ketchikan and around Ketchikan, Misty Fiords National Monument, Prince Of Wales Island, Wrangell & Around, Petersburg, Northern Panhandle, Sitka, Juneau and around, Admiralty Island & Pack Creek, Glacier Bay National Park & Preserve and Haines.
