You will meet your Juneau Mendenhall Glacier Lake Canoe Adventure Excursion transfer guide in downtown Juneau and drive to the Mendenhall Valley, approximately 30 minutes away. Here, you will meet your canoe excursion guides for this very limited experience. Because of the close approach, this Juneau Canoe Shore Excursion makes to the Mendenhall glacier face, the U.S. Forest Service tightly controls the number of participants, and a U.S. Forest Service permit is required to do this.

Your Mendenhall Lake Canoe Shore Excursion guides will fit you out with life jackets before giving you a safety and canoe orientation. You will then board your 14 passengers' traditional Tlingit-style canoe, a very stable 28-foot watercraft, with all modern safety quality gear supplied. Setting out from shore, you will paddle across Mendenhall Lake toward the face of Mendenhall glacier. As you paddle, you will be navigating past small icebergs that have broken off the face of the glacier, while keeping your eyes peeled for Alaskan wildlife. Birds including arctic terns nest on the shoreline and eagles, goats, salmon, and bears are all common sights.

Based on weather and calving conditions on the day of your Juneau Glacier Canoe Excursion, your guide will maneuver your canoe within a safe distance of the massive, awe-inspiring face of the living Mendenhall Glacier. You may also have a short thrill ride by skirting the base of beautiful and mighty Nugget Falls.

A stop will be made to refuel with a complimentary snack of Alaskan-style reindeer sausage, salmon spread, cheese, crackers, and water. Once recharged, you will paddle back across Mendenhall Lake to the starting point of this shore excursion. From here, transportation will take you back to Juneau and your cruise ship terminal.

This is a one-of-a-kind adventure cruise excursion from Juneau and is very limited. Book early to avoid disappointment.

The best adventure!

This was an unforgettable canoe experience. Our group consisted of 10 people and all did great teamwork. We were able to see the glacier really close up, spotted some wild creatures and have fun with our friends.

When in Alaska...
     5/5  (Visited on May 2018)
When in Alaska do as the Alaskans! Canoeing and kayaking is a famous activity and Alaska so we booked this knowing we would be canoeing our way to see the impressive Mendenhall Glacier but we also saw other glaciers along the way (smaller), icebergs and the nuggets fall. I saw some people getting ready for what it seemed a hiking tour on the glacier which looks like fun and would like to try on our next visit in July 2019. Great guides, very professional.

Unique Experience
     5/5  (Visited on September 2017)
We are used to the sunny California weather and when our cruise stopped in Alaska we decided to do this tour. It was really one of a kind experience. We were guided and our tour guides were so informative the whole time. There really isnt any glaciers everywhere so being close to one was a unique experience plus the lake is so beautiful sorrounded by mountains, the waterfall, animals and so much more that cannot be described. We loved the cold and I think it gives it a romantic feel to it.

Best Juneau excursion
     5/5  (Visited on July 2016)
We did this tour in July, since we researched and said this is the best time to visit and view bears and wild life. This is the season when the salmon spawn. It was the perfect weather and we loved the canoe ride through the lake and the view was amazing. Since the weather was great our guides took us to the skirts of the waterfalls. So much nature beauty and so different to anything we have experienced. It was a trip we will never forget and hope to return.
