The lake is surrounded by mountains, a tremendous waterfall and if you are lucky, there is even a chance to see wildlife! Arctic terns, mountain goats, beavers and more are scattered throughout the Alaskan wilderness. The main focus of this excursion is experiencing the Mendenhall Glacier. The Mendenhall Glacier is part of the Juneau Icefield and is 13 miles long, a half of mile wide and staggering 1,800 feet deep! You will canoe close enough to the glacier that you can feel the brisk, glacier winds roll across your face and see the famous glacial blue ice. This is the wild Alaksa everyone is talking about and adventure you don't want to miss.

When you return to shore after your adventure, you will be greeted with a hot beverage along with some snacks as you shed all of your equipment and gear to return back to the guide. When everyone is ready, you'll board again your transportation for a quick drive back to your Juneau cruise terminal where you can now say you have officially explored the Last Frontier!

This was a great excursion. It was just us and our guide which made the tour even more personal. The lake is beautiful and we got as close to the glacier as we could. Even got a few good pictures.
