Juneau is an interesting place, more sophisticated and vibrant than you would expect. It is also unlike any other state capital in this country, as it is accessible only by sea or air. It has no flat land to speak of and it has a giant icefield blocking off any chance of land access. It has been said that there are no stolen cars in Juneau, just joy rides, as there is nowhere to go!

After boarding your small van or bus, your tour begins in historic downtown Juneau, with its narrow, angled streets and interesting architecture--an area that you might choose to return to later on. Among the buildings that you will pass are the Alaska State Museum, the State Office Building, and the octagonal St. Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church.

Located a short drive from downtown Juneau in the Tongass National Forest, the remarkable Mendenhall Glacier is 12 miles long from its origin on the Juneau Icefield to its terminus at Mendenhall Lake. Your visit here will be about an hour and a half long. Your time at the glacier is self-guided, so you can roam the grounds as you wish. At certain times of the year, you'll be able to see bears catching fish in the stream from an overlook point located off to one side of the entrance to the glacier. The glacier itself is one of the most accessible to the public. We'll drive within a mile of the face.

Shore Excursions

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
