Juneau excursions.

One of the better-known Inside Passage ports in Alaska and the second largest city in the United States by sheer size, Juneau is a destination bursting with excitement. Shore Excursions Group makes it our pleasure to open your eyes to the city's history and culture with a wide variety of cruise excursions and tours.

Beautiful, serene, breathtaking. These are just a few words to describe Alaska's capital city, Juneau. Nestled tightly between the Gulf of Alaska and British Columbia, Juneau comes from a rich history deeply rooted in Native American tradition and features the most expansive and magnificent natural landscapes in the entire country. There's simply so much to see and do in and around the city that this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Excursions of a Lifetime

Juneau offers a perfect blend of extreme and relaxing activities for any visitor. Get your adrenaline pumping by taking a helicopter tour, glacier trekking, dog sledding, kayaking, zip lining, and the like, or take in the sights by humpback whale watching, bear spotting, or rafting around Mendenhall Glacier and witnessing southeast Alaska's incredible beauty. Book a combo excursion, like our ever-so-popular Extended Helicopter Ride and Dog Sledding Tour. Get the best of both worlds, flightseeing over the Juneau Icefield by helicopter and then mushing powerful huskies over the ancient snowfields by sled dog.

Alaskan Wildlife Sightseeing

Inaccessible by any manmade road, Juneau is truly a haven for wildlife. Home to 280 different species of birds, five species of salmon, black and brown bears, and awe-inspiring humpback and orca whales, the city is undoubtedly a pinnacle of America's natural wonder. Excursions, like our Mendenhall Lake Canoe Adventure, offer peak sightseeing opportunities. Board your authentic Alaskan native-style canoe and paddle around Mendenhall Lake with a small group. Just keep a lookout for wildlife such as arctic terns, bald eagles, goats, salmon, porpoises, bears, and more. Then, experience Nugget Falls, a 377-foot roaring waterfall fronting the Mendenhall Glacier.

Experience Downtown Juneau

Experiencing downtown Juneau is a must-do for anyone visiting Alaska's capital and real easy. Juneau's cruise ship port is located at the south end of the downtown area. You can also find an amazing food scene downtown where you can sample local specialties like fresh seafood, reindeer sausage, or wild berry jams. Walk around the historic district to see well-preserved buildings from the city's gold rush era, and stop by the Juneau Visitor Center to learn about the region's history. You can also explore the surrounding art galleries and souvenir shops or enjoy the scenic views of the harbor and mountainscapes. Juneau is an enriching and enjoyable home base for weary travelers.

Popular Juneau Alaska Attractions

Not sure where to begin your Alaskan adventure? Look no further! Our must-see attractions include the breathtaking Juneau Glacier walks, historic downtown, majestic Mount Juneau, stunning Mendenhall Glacier, whale watching tour, and thrilling Taku Glacier. Each excursion we offer promises a personalized and unforgettable experience. Browse our exciting Juneau shore excursions, and start planning your dream Alaska cruise today!

I am looking at Helicopter ride (i hear this is a MUST DO) bugt I see some are with dog sledding too.. Also, think Mendenhall Glacier is interesting as well. Can I do both? What about Flight seeing?Is that a good option? We are in our 40's and are moderately active. What is the town like? Can we walk around there between the time the excursion ends and we need to get back on the ship? HELP!!!

Thank you in advance for sharing your expertise.

In terms of Mendenhall Glacier its one of the more scenic land glaciers you will see on the trip where you can walk up to it. We liked it so much we have a photo of it now in our home.

I am assuming one of your days on the cruise lines will be seeing Glacier Bay or another one of the glaciers in the inland cruise ). As such, it depends how much you want to see glaciers.

If you do Mendenhall, do explore the neighborhood a bit (if you have time). By the creek area, we saw lots of bears. Our bed and breakfast was in the area and its quite the site to see a bear nose on the window pane of the window as we enjoyed their wine social hour.

The town itself is touristy with reasonable number of places for drinks and dinner. The one thing you can do from town though is to the tram ride to the top of the mountain. Good place for views. Mount Roberts Tramway

tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g31020-d14…

It depends on the tour you decide on. If the tour you select gives you time to walk around they will leave you of and you can enjoy. Do decide if you want to do Mt. Roberts tram or explore the shops though as when we were there this past September they gave us the option of stopping at one of two places.

Juneau is good for the helicopter ride if its a must do. (Note: Its on the least rainy side since Ketchikan is where the rain forest is) so your chances of having a better day for that are higher.

We've done a fight from Juneau over the glaciers - I must say for the men in our party that day they loved it. I was equally thrilled but amazed by how close the flight got to numerous glaciers. So, its one that is great for the views, and a bit of a thrill - so yes, this is good place to go if on a good day (we had some high clouds).

Yes, there is a lot to do in Juneau - on our latest trip we went fishing and caught 3 salmon. We had awesome views and saw some whales. Amazing day.

So decide what looks best to what you want to do. One of the people on our fishing boat had their wife who took the whale sightseeing boat. We actually saw more whales than she did that day, so it depends a bit upon one's luck as well in terms of seeing wildlife.

Its a very fun place to be and whatever excursion you decide on, have a great time.

The glacier helicopter landings are excellent, and so is any flightseeing. No better way to see the vastness of Alaska. You will need to decide if you want that or a dog sledding. both tours excellent. There are 3 companies out of Juneau and one glacier trekking vendor. I have flow with the all of the former. There is one vendor out of Skagway. Mendenhall, is an excellent visit- IF YOU want to see it and enjoy their activities. I would caution you against, selecting tours, just because you "hear" they are must does. So is just about all of Alaska tours. Make your own selections and determine what YOU really want to see and do.

If we do that tour, can we simply walk around the town when we return (there will be several hours until we need to get back to ship). What is there to do that is walkable?

Thank you again for all of your suggestions. We are not made of money so we thought we'd do just ONE crazy thing o n this trip.

Although there are many fine excursions to choose from, we are opting for a private charter in Ketchikan that is savings us $125 for more time and it's just my husband and I. I even spoke with the Captain personally and am anticipating a great investment. I'm going to look into something in Juneau and Skagway that is separate from the cruise since money can be saved.

Good luck, AWBW2011!

celebrity cruise excursions in juneau

Accessible only by air or sea, Alaska's capital city entices travelers with its beauty, tranquility and outdoor activities. The Mendenhall Glacier, the jewel of the Juneau Icefield, can be discovered on scenic drives, hikes, boat rides, rafting trips, kayaking excursions and helicopter tours. Thrill-seekers get their adrenaline fix while ziplining above alpine forests, and culture lovers learn about landmarks such as the governor's mansion and St. Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church during explorations of downtown. A prospector-led panning adventure to Last Chance Basin allows you to strike gold, just as folks did in the late 19th century. Juneau's waters are a hot spot for humpback whales, and daily cruises afford the opportunity to witness these majestic creatures-a truly unforgettable experience. Brush up on local history with a visit to the Alaska State Museum, and cap off the day's adventures with a sampling of freshly caught salmon and locally sourced beer.

Visiting Juneau:

Juneau, originally named Harrisburg after one of its co-founders, was the first town established in Alaska after it’s purchase from Russia in 1867. In 1880, the first rush of miners came in search of gold. With the help of Tlingit Chief Kowee, seekers found gold and by the end of 1916, there were three successful mines producing millions of dollars worth of gold. Once word of Juneau’s natural beauty and prospecting triumph’s spread, more visitors began flocking to the town and haven’t stopped since! Nowadays Juneau sees nearly 1 million visitors every year - will you be one of them?

Come visit, check out our list of the best  things to do in Juneau , and take in some of the natural highlights like the Juneau helicopter tours over the ice fields, the arrival of the humpback whales every summer with one of our Juneau whale watching tours, go dog sledding, go ziplining through  Tongass National Forest , or take a flightseeing trip up to the historic Taku Lodge where you’ll fly over the Taku Glacier, the only glacier unaffected by glacial melting!

The most popular Juneau shore excursions are tours involving glaciers or wildlife sightseeing. The Mendenhall Glacier  is the only glacier that can be accessed by land via the road system, whereas many other glaciers can be experienced through helicopter and seaplane sightseeing. Juneau helicopter tours give you an opportunity to land and walk on various glaciers in the area that could otherwise not be seen or visited. As you prepare for your trip, you can check out the current Mendenhall Glacier weather .

Whale Watching is also very popular and among the best Alaska tours, because of the extreme abundance of whales in the area. Humpback whales spend their summers in Alaska to feed before heading back to Mexico or Hawaii to live and give birth to offspring in the winter months. The nutrient-rich waters create the ideal feeding grounds in Juneau for humpback whales including the spectacular bubble-net feeding technique in which whales work together to consume large amounts of krill, their main food source.  If you're feeling hungry, you can pair your  whale watching tour with an outdoor salmon bake .

Things To Do

Travel | travel: alaska is ready for another record-breaking cruise season.

celebrity cruise excursions in juneau

Alaska is home to more than 30,000 grizzlies, but the state’s cruise industry is experiencing anything but a bear market as momentum of last year’s record-breaking season is expected to continue in 2024.

Looking at the most-visited Alaskan port as a proxy for the ship-shape southeastern side of the state, Juneau set a new mark a year ago with 1.65 million passengers descending on the capital city during cruise season, which generally runs from early April to late October. That figure from the Juneau Chamber of Commerce is a Danali-sized jump of 30% compared to the previous mark set in pre-pandemic 2019.

Coinciding with Alaska’s 65th anniversary of statehood, the upcoming cruise season appears to be just as robust with 19 cruise lines sending 43 ships to the Last Frontier. Kicking things off for the second straight year is the 4,008-passenger Norwegian Bliss, which is scheduled to dock in rustic Skagway on April 8. With four mainstream-category ships homeported in either Seattle or Vancouver, Norwegian Cruise Line ( ncl.com ) has nearly 100 more after that. Impressive, but two competing companies have staked out larger claims in this modern-day, maritime Alaskan gold rush; Holland America Line ( hollandamerica.com ) is sending seven premium-class ships for 141 total cruises, and at the top of the totem pole is Princess Cruises ( princess.com ), which is celebrating its 55th year in these waters with seven premium ships sharing 158 departures.

Not counting grand voyages with itineraries so rich that they make a visit to Alaska seem more like a pitstop, this cruise season will see more than 800 trips of mostly seven to 10 days starting or ending on this side of the Pacific. Where they’re all going is a destination rich in unparallel wilderness, wildlife and native culture. In other words, bucket list stuff.

“Alaska is one of those places that draws you in and sets the hook right away,” said Kristi Switzer, destination marketing manager for Travel Juneau ( traveljuneau.com ). “Visitors come for the otherworldly experience of being in the presence of glaciers and fjords, seeing whales and bears, and finding the balance of Alaska Native cultural heritage with the rustic sophistication found in the capital city and other places within this magnificent state.”

Sometimes just seeing a whale's tail is a win when on an Alaskan tour. (Photo by David Dickstein)

Although Switzer recommends visits lasting several days instead of several hours, the city’s destination evangelist hopes that a partial day in Juneau and each major Alaskan cruise port has over 1.5 million passengers wanting more.

“This magical corner of the world has so much to offer beyond being a checkmark on people’s bucket lists,” she said. “Make time to enjoy the fascinating culture, spectacular outdoor recreation, unique shopping, amazing restaurants and artist galleries that Juneau and all of Southeast Alaska have to offer.”

Alaska is a checkmark for about three-quarters of all passengers headed there, according to the Alaska Tourism Industry Association, and the same can be said for two ships this season.

Starting with a six-day sail out of Vancouver on May 11, the namesake of Celebrity Cruises’ ( celebritycruises.com ) popular Edge class will make her Alaskan debut with weeklong roundtrips from Seattle through Sept. 13. The 2,918-passenger vessel features a unique “outside-in” architecture that provides more floor-to-ceiling glass on the exterior and expanded outdoor spaces to soak up the Alaskan coastlines.

Edge will be joined by a pair of fleet mates for the season, albeit Summit’s seven-day roundtrips are turnarounds out of Anchorage or Vancouver and Solstice’s weeklong jaunts are solely based in the British Columbian seaport. Celebrity, a premier-category cruise line, meaning it’s between the economical mainstream class and pricy luxury level, has 57 departures to Alaska scheduled this year.

The other new recruit is Silver Nova, the youngest Silversea Cruises ( silversea.com ) ship in the luxury fleet to ever service Alaska. Capped at 728 guests, Silver Nova was launched last year and has the goods to do justice to a dreamlike place that captures the imagination of wilderness lovers and history buffs.

“Silver Nova is the ideal ship for Alaska cruising,” said company spokesman Brad Ball. “Her innovative design, which prizes openness over symmetry and incorporates an unprecedented use of approximately 4,000 square meters of glass, immerses guests into the incredible scenery of Alaska from virtually all venues and suites, with far-reaching views at every turn.”

While in Skagway, let happy and hard-working sled dogs take you on a spin around Musher's Camp. (Photo by David Dickstein)

The ship’s reimagined pool deck, which overlooks the water on her starboard side, and all-new outdoor venues — the Dusk Bar and the Marquee — allows unique openness to view spectacular Alaskan glaciers and wildlife. Those who want to experience an older and smaller Evolution-class Silversea vessel can book the Silver Muse, which also will sail mostly seven- to 14-day trips between Anchorage and Vancouver.

Because nearly every Alaskan cruise includes the staples — Juneau, Skagway, Ketchikan, Inside Passage, and Denali with a land add-on — some cruise lines like to shake things up with unique itineraries.

Holland America has a roundtrip that makes it easy to visit the 49th and 50th states without a long flight. A new “Glaciers & Volcanos: Alaska to Hawaii” cruise, part of the premium line’s Legendary Voyages collection of journeys from 25 to 59 days, departs on Aug. 31 from Seattle or Sept. 1 from Vancouver aboard the 1,916-passenger Westerdam. The near-four-week-long itinerary includes seldomly visited Kodiak and Dutch Harbor before heading down to the tropics to make four calls to three Hawaiian islands.

Seabourn ( seabourn.com ) strives to offer a more tasteful Alaskan cruise and not only because it’s an ultra-luxury cruise line. “Caviar on the Ice” is a savory and swanky soiree on every Alaskan voyage, and when the 450-passenger Odyssey is in Sitka, a town originally built by Russian traders in the early 1800s, Seabourn guests can enjoy a culinary adventure that includes a scenic drive to a taproom for a sampling of local brews and a few eateries to try Siberian-rooted pelmeni dumplings and a hot dog made with caribou that the locals call “reindeer dawgs.” Sorry, vegetarians and friends of Santa, but Blitzen on a bun is da bomb.

Red Onion Saloon, a former bordello built in 1898, is a top attraction in historic Skagway. (Photo by David Dickstein)

Carnival Cruise Line ( carnival.com ) is staying with a three-ship deployment in Alaska this season. Sharing the workload of 55 roundtrips generally lasting seven to 11 days are Carnival Spirit (2,610 passengers) and Carnival Luminosa (2,260) out of Seattle, and Carnival Miracle (2,667) from San Francisco. Another mainstream cruise line, Royal Caribbean ( royalcaribbean.com ), has four ships making 85 runs to Alaska from Seattle, Vancouver and Anchorage: Ovation of the Seas, (4,905) and older sister Quantum of the Seas, Brilliance of the Seas (2,543) and Radiance of the Seas (2,466).

Disney Cruise Line ( disneycruise.com ) is sending its 2,700-passenger Disney Wonder out of Vancouver for 15 week-long roundtrips, one five-day spin leaving on July 24 and an extended nine-day voyage on July 15.

Other cruise lines showing passengers a whale of a time in Alaska include Crystal, Cunard, Hurtigruten, Lindblad/National Geographic, Oceania, Ponant, Regent Seven Seas and Viking.

Amazing Adventures Await on Alaska Shore Excursions

As your ship docks at the Juneau cruise port and excitement builds at your first glimpse of those magnificent glaciers, you may wonder what kind of Juneau shore excursions are offered that will capture the awesomely beautiful scenery. Well, just to be clear, that awesomely beautiful scenery will be part of every excursion you care to book, and that’s a very good start, indeed.

Juneau’s unique positioning at the midpoint of the Inside Passage gives Alaska’s capital city an unparalleled array of vistas that include mountains, glaciers, rainforests, fjords, waterfalls, and sea. These, in turn, afford visitors a wealth of opportunities to delve into, discover, and delight in the natural world that is the heart of Juneau.

For a scenic overview of the area, make the first of your Juneau shore excursions the Mount Roberts Tramway, located right at the port. Ascending 1,800 feet up in a tramcar, you’re treated to breathtaking views of Juneau, including Gastineau Channel, Stephens Passage, and the Silver Bow Basin, where gold was discovered in 1880.

And if gold is your game, there are tours to pan for gold, alone or in combination with other family-fun activities like an authentic salmon bake, a flightseeing tour of glaciers, or a whale-watching cruise . Whale-watching rates five-stars for fun and fascinating Juneau cruise excursions. It’s simply thrilling to see a humpback or orca make that leaping arc out of the water and come splashing down before your eyes. Guided excursions range from day to evening, from combo tours that include other activities like wildlife hikes or glacier walks, and from multi-passenger cruisers to smaller crafts.

For those who revel in heights, nothing rivals the up-close views of the area’s magnificent glaciers, whether you choose a helicopter tour that lands atop Mendenhall Glacier or walking, hiking, or canoeing trips that take you right alongside. For a double-dose of outdoor adventure, book an over-glacier helicopter ride to a dog-sled-musher’s camp.

There’s no shortage of active adventures to explore while in port. You can book Juneau shore excursions offering ziplining over rainforests, canoeing downriver around ice floes, biking in the shadow of a glacier with a break for beer tasting, or sport fishing for an opportunity to finally reel in the big one.

If laid back and leisurely are more your style, Mendenhall Gardens is an oasis of colorful beauty, and for food lovers there are restaurant excursions that seek out Juneau’s tastiest tidbits.
