Enjoy a film presentation and enjoy a leg stretcher walk to get a more personal experience with the Mendenhall Glacier. We also visited the Mendenhall Gardens which was fascinating.

Bus driver gave description of town and area. Dropped us off at Glacier. You walk down one path and take pics, then go to another path and walk right to the waterfall. End at the Visitor Center were Rangers give excellent talks.

not that exciting unless you walk close to it, and we had young and old people that wouldn't want to walk out to the glacier in the rain.

Too little time allowed at the glacier (only 75 minutes, not nearly enough to do a 2 mile round trip to the glacier).

This was the first part of our two part excursion. We did a short, easy hike to a small beach that had a great view of the glacier and the waterfall formed by its run off.

We got a Lyft for four of us to Mendenhall glacier for about $29. This included a stop at Safeway to pick up sandwiches. The park doesn't allow lyft or uber in the park (which is totally wrong IMO) but does allow cabs. Our lyft driver ended our drive at the entrance of the park, but drove us to the car parking on his own dime. We got a lyft back, but had to walk out a ways. We saved a ton of money doing this for the day. Took the walking paths around the glacier for the day at our own pace. Read Less

Narrated commentary and transportation to/from the glacier, and two hours on our own at the glacier. Glacier area is easy to explore so this worked well, but you could probably save $ by independently getting a cab or shuttle.

We enjoyed the beautiful site but didn't feel we had the ability to hike or take a long walk to waterfall. The salmon bake was delicious but we felt a little rushed.

For $190 for 4 people, we got a humorous 20 minute school bus ride out to the glacier and back. The glacier was beautiful. Take the time to walk all the trails if you have time. There are waterfalls too. If I did it again, I would do the kayak tour to see the glacier and falls up closer. It was VERY crowded as there were 4 ships in port that day. Kinda sad actually to be overrun with so many people. Read Less

Mendenhall Glacier Visitors Center from Juneau – This is one shore excursion some of us took to make it easy. There was only a little walking for those that couldn’t walk far. We ended up taking the free shuttle bus from the pier to the Mt Roberts Tramway station. In this area, we just went to the “Blue Bus” that would take us to Mendenhall, which costs us about $30 each. This included admission to the visitors center. While at the visitors center, there is a movie that is about 15 minutes long. This movie is worth watching. Read Less
