This Shrine is beautiful and definitely worth the short walk. It is in the middle of a beautifully serene wood setting with the ocean just a short distance away. Mother Nature wraps you in her wonders and puts your heart at peace.

Take the tour bus from downtown Juneau. There is usually a combination tour that combines Mendenhall Glacier with the Shrine. The shrine is a peaceful retreat on a narrow peninsula that juts out into Lynn Canal. Spectacular views of Chilkat range to the West; plus glaciers in vicinity.

Went for a ladies retreat! Great views and the accommodations were nice. You can walk out to see the shrine, very beautiful! Wonderful location to watch the northern lights from!

This was a small church/chapel on an island the area was interesting but in March not much happening. The chapel is dedicated to the victims of abortion???? Had I known that in advance I would not have gone on principal.

My group of over 10 people visited the Shrine as a last stop from M&M Tours. For us, it was not a great experience. Shrine was in use on this day (Sunday of course). Driver suggested going in quietly but we felt underdressed. In hindsight, the ladies in our group would have skipped this out of the way Shrine for... More

What a lovely hidden place. We headed toward the end of the highway in Juneau and came upon this beautiful place.

Shrine of St.Therese is a peaceful place. I walked the peninsula on which the shrine sits in silent contemplation. There is a wonderful trail to walk around the chapel with scenic views, forest, and stations of the cross along the way. The shrine was quite a build, and shows dedication of St. Therese's followers. It's a drive out of Juneau,... More

As a non catholic I still really enjoyed my visit. Beautiful statues, and a wonderful change of pace from the cruise ship. Worth the visit. My favorite thing I did in Juneau!

It was a rainy day when I visited this beautiful and contemplative place...and I think they rain may even have contributed to the ambiance. The setting is unique, the grounds are beautiful, and anyone of any faith (or no faith) will be swept up in the serenity of this place. There is also much to learn here. Don't miss it.
