Mendenhall Glacier

You may find it difficult to decide which of the many ways to see the Mendenhall Glacier, but you won't find any difficulty deciding whether to see it. Besides being one of the most accessible glaciers in the world, it is one of the most beautiful as well. It is also one of the best places in Alaska to see bears, beavers, and arctic terns. Also, most glaciers you will see are from a boat. Visiting the Mendenhall Glacier gives you a chance to see the affects of glacial ice on the land and view "plant succession" up close and hands-on. If you are in Juneau, you really need to see it. Fortunately, there are several ways to mark the Mendenhall off your list. View the images below, then choose one of the several tours, or rent a car or a bicycle - just don't miss it!
