Cruise Ports Alaska - Juneau (PDF Chapter)
This is the Juneau chapter from Lonely Planet’s Cruise Ports Alaska guide-book.
Alaska’s busiest cruise port managed to juggle heavy crowds with a dramatic cusp-of-wilderness location. Superb hiking starts minutes from downtown, a massive glacier calves into a lake just up the road, and nearby is bear-viewing, ziplining and whale-watching.
- hike the Mt Roberts Trail to flower-strewn alpine meadows (and take the tramway down again)
- watch the Mendenhall Glacier turn different shades of blue in the changing light
- fly over glaciers, then sample wild salmon at Taku Glacier Lodge
- food & drink
Coverage includes: Sights, Activities, Tours, Shopping, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Getting Around, Glacier Bay National Park, Icy Strait Point, Petersburg.
