A nice way to get outside while in Juneau

It's kind of pricey, but the tram takes you up to a nice overlook of the area, and if you like to hike, there are plenty of trails that meet the top of the tram. There's also a... read more

We bought passes to the tramway which were good for all day and ended up doing three round trips. My grandsons (ages 13 and 10) just loved it. We especially enjoyed the film about Tlinkit culture and the boys loved seeing the live bald eagle. The scenery is most enjoyable. The "hosts" on the tram are clearly burned out and... More

This ride is great, as the views of the harbor are fantastic. Once at the top, there are trails and vantage points that are awe some. There is an interpretive centre, shopping and restaurant at the top. There are two cable cars and if you time it right, you can take one up and then the other one down. Both... More

Looks fun, but very expensive. When we were there we wanted to take this trip, but at $40 per person. We found other things to do nowhere near the cost of the tram ride up.

It's kind of pricey, but the tram takes you up to a nice overlook of the area, and if you like to hike, there are plenty of trails that meet the top of the tram. There's also a "rescued" bald eagle on display (sometimes) next to the tram building.

$33.00 for an adult is pretty pricey. The weather wasn't that great that day but only had one day in Juneau so we went anyway. You can purchase a tour of the glacier and tram which is a better deal but we had already purchased to glacier tour through our cruise line. Couldn't see much on the way up but... More

We happened to have lovely weather so we enjoyed the view from the visitor area as well as the hike up to the cross and the views along the way.

We loved the tram ride but didn't see as much due to the fog in the area that day. At the top of the mountain is a visitor center, which shows an excellent Native American movie about the Alaska area. The gift shop was nice but the totem pole carving was the most interesting. Of course the rescued live bald... More

This is pricey! $33/person is a steep price to ride up the steep hill - but we paid it on a drizzly "knew we wouldn't see much" kind of day. The gift shop is so-so, the restaurant is average, but the trails and nature center were very nice. The staff in the nature center were very knowledgeable and helpful about... More
