Experience Alaska's rugged natural beauty from a perspective best seen on foot during this exhilarating walking tour at the Mendenhall Glacier National Recreation Area.

This tour has been recommended by Jean-Michel Cousteau's Ocean Futures Society based on its philosophy that guided experiences in nature should inspire people, young and old, to act responsibly for the protection of our planet's vital ecosystems.

Depart the pier with your naturalist guide for a narrated drive through Juneau, and on to the trailhead. Upon arrival, you will begin your guided hike through the glacier-clad valley. This is one of few tours in the area that include the services of a naturalist guide throughout the trip.

During your hike, you will discover many treasures best experienced on foot. You will take a walk along a rushing mountain stream, feel the mist of a cascading waterfall, listen to the cry of a bald eagle, and smell the fragrance of a secluded forest glen. The surrounding peaks are home to mountain goats, black bears, beavers and porcupine.

As you proceed along the trail, stops will be made at various viewpoints to take in panoramic vistas and photo opportunities of this expansive, glacier-carved Alaskan wilderness. Your naturalist guide will also provide you with interesting facts about this last great temperate rainforest. Following your hike, you will be transferred back to the pier.

Please note: This tour involves approximately 3 hours (4-6 miles) of strenuous hiking over bumpy, uneven ground, with an elevation gain of about 500 feet. This tour is recommended for guests in good physical condition. Guests with back and/or neck problems, guests with limited mobility and guests who utilize a wheelchair will not be permitted on this tour. The number of participants will be limited to ensure a personalized and interactive experience. This tour operates in all weather conditions. Dress warmly in layers, wear hiking boots and bring a camera from the ship. A poncho, hiking stick, belt pack, bottled water, and snack will be provided.
