Tasting Alaskan Beers

Typical Day

You begin our 8.5 mile ride near Auke Lake with your first camera stop at Chapel by the Lake, a quaint older log chapel with a lovely view of the Mendenhall Glacier across Auke Lake; marvel at the scenic views of the Lake and surrounding mountains and Glacier. Your ride continues through the University of Alaska/Juneau located in a glacier carved valley. Then you stop for another spectacular view of the Mendenhall Glacier at the beach of Mendenhall Lake on the West side of this mighty Glacier. This is another great place to take pictures.

While at the beach, your guides help to explain the Juneau Icefield and the Mendenhall Glacier areas, and answer your questions. After a rest, snack, click of your camera, and a beverage, ride to the East side of the Mendenhall Glacier for a stop near the Visitor’s Center. There you will take a short walk to the see the majestic Mendenhall Glacier from a much closer perspective. There is a wonderful covered viewing area, which looks straight on to the Mendenhall Glacier for you to enjoy. On the way visit, a nearby stream where in the late summer months you can see salmon spawning and occasionally you can even see bears snacking on the spawning salmon. More fantastic picture taking!

Then, take your van to Downtown Juneau’s old sea plane hangar Merchant’s Wharf, a waterfront landmark in aviation history, for a tasting of award winning beers from micro-breweries across Alaska.

Afterwards, either explore Downtown and return to your Ship independently, or relax in your van for the quick return trip to your Ship.
