Since I live in a ski area with several resorts and trams that go much further, I was a bit disappointed in this one. Once we got to the top of the tram we did the short hike to the cross on the hill which gave a great view of the surrounding area- it was clear and sunny that day.... More

The Mount Roberts Tramway is located by the cruise ship area of downtown Juneau. The trip up and down by tram is fun. We enjoyed walking the trails once we got to the top. We also enjoyed the scenic views. Lunch at the cafe warmed us up. We also found a very nice wood chess set there that we purchased.... More

First, it's $32 which is too much-but it's the only way up - hiking up is possible but the trail is steep, rocky, and often muddy. At 65, better to save my energy and hike from the top of the tram, which I did and loved it. Going up, we had an operator who started loudly beating on a native... More

Our trip to Alaska had many highlights, but this tram was at the top of my list of things we did. Amazing view and best part was the crazy beautiful bar/lounge at the top whee we fell in love with Alaska brewing co beer. Nothin beats sitting on top of the world with a great meal.

Great ride up the tram. We lucked out with the weather. The view was worth a million bucks. We enjoyed seeing the Bald Eagle and learning about why she was in the enclosure. We did some hiking and exploring. We watched the movie about Native Alaskans in SE Alaska. It was a great film that our five year old enjoyed.... More

Great views of the town and the harbour. The station is located right near the shuttle terminal. If you can see the top of the mountain, then go.

A must do in Juneau. We were lucky and had a beautifully clear day. I think the fee was well worth it. The tram ride is serene and the town turns into what seems like a toy as you ascend. Even our cruise ship looked like a toy boat. They let NATURE be the main attraction, which is as it... More

The views from the top of the mountain are beautiful! The trail at the top was a fun way to spend the morning.

There are 2 ways up Mt. Roberts-hike or take the tram. The tram cost around $30 for all day-costly compared to Mt. Alyeska in Girdwood. On the ride up the mountain riders are treated to views of Juneau, the ocean, Douglas Island and the many cruise ships. Once at the top there are several miles of trails and beautiful scenery.
