Juneau is wonderful little city filled with many history oddities. But do not buy tickets for the tram ahead of time, especially all day passes. If the weather is rainy or cloudy you will only make this trip once, so you will have overpaid for this excursion. But I must say the tram is definitley worth a one-time round trip.... More

Visited while on Alaskan cruise and well worth doing. Great views from the top, some very good and easy walks, take a choice, see the wild flowers, bald eagles and we were lucky enough to see a brown bear grazing.

An easy way to get up and down if you aren't into hiking. I hiked up to the Tram and took the tram down.

Rain is pretty standard in Juneau and when the clouds are low the view is so-so, but when it clears the view is great! The Tram operator gave a good overview of the area and tram construction on the way up. On the way down a different operator gave an introduction to Tlingit culture. The hike around the top of...

There isn't much else to say except that you MUST do this while in Juneau! Mt. Roberts is beautiful and the tram is one of the most high-tech we've seen. 60 people up and down at a time in a large, comfortable car with very little, if any, swaying. Spectacular!

It was a beautiful clear day and we had great views of the city and the surrounding Alaskan landscape. We enjoyed sitting with a glass of wine and watching the float planes land near the cruise ships below. They had a beautiful bald eagle who had been injured there that you could visit. We were able to see eagles in... More

You get an all day pass for the tram upon purchasing a ticket. If you have the time walk around the entire trail. Make sure you bring your hiking shoes!!

Throughout our crusietour, we saw bear but really far away. Here we saw an injured eagle up close and a bear that was about 25 meters away. It was fun to hike around and see the view from the top.

Be aware the tram on Monday does not open until noon. It's a quick ride, and some nice walk/hike trails.

Great views when it's not raining. Good hiking up there. But, at $32/person, it's not cheap so if you go, make sure that the weather is good so that you have good views.
