About Mendenhall Glacier Tours

Mendenhall Glacier is part of the Juneau Icefield, located within the Tongass National Forest. If you're in the Juneau area, a visit to the Mendenhall Glacier is a must-do activity.

There's a Mendenhall Glacier tour for everyone. You can ride atop Mendenhall Lake by kayak, canoe, or raft or you can fly to the glacier via helicopter. For a truly exciting trip, the Ice Adventure tour can include a visit to the famous Mendenhall Glacier Ice Caves if conditions are favorable.

For a calmer time at the glacier, try whale watching, a salmon bake, or a walk through the Glacier Gardens.
Mendenhall Glacier weather is typically mildest in May through September. During the summer, expect highs in the 60s and always bring a rain jacket - just in case. (But don't let rain discourage your trip! The glacier is beautiful on cloudy days.)
