Glacier Gardens Rainforest, nestled alongside Thunder Mountain, is a stunning combination of flowered pathways and temperate rainforest. Upon arrival, you are met by a staff member who will escort you through the colorful lower garden that includes amazingly designed landscapes and a cascading stream. Hear about how the local owners came to develop the area and the history behind their notorious upside down trees.

Next you will enjoy a guided tour from your covered transportation into the rainforest. Your guide will provide a narrative through the mile-long journey to the 580-foot level. Enjoy breathtaking views of the Mendenhall valley, Chilkat Mountains and Gastineau Channel. Enjoy a brief stop in the greenhouse at the bottom of the mountain before traveling to the Mendenhall Glacier Juneau's star attraction.

This massive river of compressed blue ice is the largest, most rugged glacier accessible by road. Take a few minutes to walk along the trails, stop at the photo look out or enjoy the short movie in the visitors center about the glacier. The US Forest Service is available throughout the visitor center complex to answer your questions.
