    Enjoy an enlightening look at Juneau on the way to an unexpectedly luxuriant botanical garden that follows sustainable practices. After taking in several key attractions in Alaska’s capital city, you will pause at Brotherhood Bridge, which is dedicated to the Alaska Native Brotherhood, which has advocated civil rights for the state’s indigenous people for more than a century.

    Ride through the wilderness on the outskirts of Juneau in a Jeep with a retractable top that will offer unobstructed views of the extraordinary natural beauty. Along the way, you can relive the gold rush by panning for gold in the creek where prospector Joe Juneau struck it rich in 1880. Or you might opt to simply enjoy the serenity at the picturesque waterfall just a short walk away. A leisurely hike along Steep Creek Bear Trail will take you to Mendenhall Glacier, one of North America’s most accessible glaciers. As a bonus, you may observe bears in the forest. The views from Eagle Beach will be more sweeping, as this secluded stretch of sand is a great spot to view the majestic Chilkat Mountains. The National Shrine of St. Thérèse is one of the few buildings in this coastal wonderland and will be well worth the visit. The shrine’s cobblestone exterior is particularly memorable.


    HIGHLIGHTS
    • Ride into the wilds that lie on the outskirts of Alaska’s capital in a 4x4 Jeep.
    • Pan for gold in the creek that launched Juneau’s gold rush and see the waterfall nearby.
    • Behold Mendenhall Glacier, one of North America’s most accessible glaciers.
    • Pause at the National Shrine dedicated to St. Thérèse, the patron saint of Alaska.
