Juneau Day Tours, Cruises, Shore Excursions & Outdoor Adventures
Home » Tours » City-Based Day Tours » Juneau
Juneau, Alaska, is the capital of the state of Alaska and owes much of its early history to successful gold mining operations in the region. The city was named after gold prospector Joe Juneau and is nestled in a spectacular setting between Mount Juneau and the Gastineau Channel.
Juneau was established as the seat of Alaska’s government in 1906. Today, Juneau thrives on tourism, with cruise ships making the city one of the primary ports of call for cruise passengers.
Visitors to Juneau can enjoy highlights, including the Mendenhall Glacier, plus a wide variety of helicopter and fixed-wing flightseeing tours over the Juneau Icefield – some of which land on glaciers for guided hikes or dog sledding. For wildlife enthusiasts, grizzly and brown bear viewing on Admiralty Island and whale-watching cruises are also readily available. Our Juneau tours and excursions depart daily during the cruise ship season, May through September.
