Juneau / Mendenhall Glacier (BLD)
Fuel up with breakfast, meet your guides for a full day paddle and trek adventure. Canoe across the lake to Mendenhall Glacier. Then trade your paddles for hiking poles and traverse the glacier’s surface. Crevasses and spires of ice dot the landscape—an explorer’s and photographer’s dream. If the lake is frozen*, then it’s a scenic hike on West Glacier Trail. After your expedition, kick back and trade stories of the day with your travel mates over dinner. Overnight at the Four Points by Sheraton (or similar).
From nature to culture. Delve deeper into Alaska’s capital city with a half-day walking tour of Juneau. Visit the Governor’s Mansion, Capital Building, and Russian Orthodox Church and break away from the tourist spots by exploring the nooks and crannies of the town your guide knows by heart. Finish your walk with a stop at a tea house. Wrap up the day with a view—you have an included ticket up the Mt. Roberts Tram to use at your leisure before setting sail this afternoon.
