    A stunning glacier
    Climate change is shrinking this Glacier. We came here on our visit to Juneau and is a must to see. There is a short hike you can do here as well and a short film to watch about the glacier. Well worth a visit. A long lens camera will give you the best pictures if you have one.

    Easily accessible glacier
    The Mendenhall Glacier is about a half hour's drive from Juneau and is well worth seeing. Go to the National Park Visitor Center to see a short movie and the exhibits. Photos from the same spot over the years show how the glacier is receding. There are nice views from the visitor center, but you should follow the short trail to the aptly named Photo Point.

    Beautiful Sight
    Beautiful! A must see. I wish we had more time to do some of the trails around but even the walk from the visitor's centre to Nugget Falls was great - well marked and accessible (except for the end which I doubt a wheelchair would easily be able to go through) Nugget Falls was just amazing! I don't think I have seen any other falls this up close

    Gorgeous Glacier
    Mendenhall is a short taxi ride out of Juneau. We contracted with a taxi for out/back service with 2 hours at the glacier. We were able to hike out to Nugget Falls and enjoy the film at the visitor center with plenty of time. The hike is very easy and gives you a great view of the glacier standing at the bottom of the falls.

    Amazing Experience!
    We booked an excursion to the glacier from the cruise ship. The bus trip was approx. 20-25 minutes from Juneau & we enjoyed the sites. You get dropped off at the visitor's center. There are 2 options for seeing the glacier one path takes you to the look out & other you can get up close.

    Breathing views of the Glacier
    Fantastic tour. Harmony the driver of the bus was excellent. We learned so much about Juneau, the Glacier and the history of both. We had the opportunity to stop in town and visit The Red Dog Saloon…best Duck Farts in Alaska!

    Take the local bus there an skip the cruise excursion
    We got off the cruise ship, and chose one of the many local buses that take a bunch of people to drive out to see the visitor center and glacier. You really don't need to buy an excursion and I recommend you don't. We took our time at the visitor center - enjoyed the beautiful views. My grandmother waited at the visitor center while I walked the short path up to the glacier's waterfall, which I highly recommend doing as the views are even better there than at the visitor center.

    First Day in Alaska Adventure - Mendenhall Glacier
    Mendenhall Glacier is a short drive from Juneau and easy to find. The visitor center is very informative and their are several nice hikes from the visitor center that take you to the base of the falls and other areas. The hikes are very moderate and appropriate for all ages. Pretty views of the glacier even though it's still a pretty good distance away.

    Juneau gem
    The best bargain is the $2 (cash) per person each direction city bus tour to the bus stop 1 mile and 1/2 from the entrance to the Visitor Center. The bus runs every 30 minutes and the ride gave us an opportunity to see local Juneau residents and a basic tour of the area on our way to the glacier. We took family pictures with the glacier as our backdrop, and we had a drink of the glacial water. Our adult daughters are experienced hikers and brought their water sterilizing filters for this purpose!

    Juneau's #1 attraction
    Weather grounded our helicopter landing on the glacier but we enjoyed hiking to nugget falls, exploring the area and visitor center just as much. Plenty of spots for great photos. Arrive later in the day to avoid the early morning tour bus rush from the cruise ships.
