Juneau, Alaska, US
Information Not Currently Available
Travel through Juneau's picturesque downtown to the mighty Mendenhall Glacier, a moving river of ice with rugged crevasses. Visit the Macaulay Salmon Hatchery and learn about the importance of Alaska's salmon and the impact these clever fish have on the environment and economy of the 49th state.
Enjoy excellent eagle viewing and the variety of local marine life in aquariums. Then you'll board a motorcoach and head to the traditional Alaskan salmon bake at Salmon Creek. An Alaskan feast, this salmon bake features Alaskan-caught wild salmon grilled over an open alderwood fire. Also enjoy barbecue ribs, cheesy au gratin potatoes, baked beans with reindeer sausage, wild-rice pilaf, fresh salads, cornbread and lemonade, coffee or tea. Beverages are available for purchase.
Dine beside Salmon Creek in Southeast Alaska's rain forest and listen to a local musician. A translucent roof protects you, rain or shine. After dining, toast marshmallows over a crackling campfire and walk to view the beautiful Salmon Creek waterfall. Remnants of the historic Wagner Mine are evident here. Return to the ship by shuttle bus.
