More than just a bike ride, this value-priced excursion with three experiences in one -- biking, visiting Mendenhall Glacier and tasting Alaskan microbrewery beers -- offers you a chance to experience the beauty surrounding Juneau at a slower pace with a friendly, knowledgeable, local guide.
On the van ride to the bike departure point, you will hear about Juneau's history and some interesting information about the city and its surroundings.
Gear up with a bike and helmet, and listen to a safety briefing. You'll set out from Auke Lake and watch for memorable glacier views.
Stop at the Chapel-by-the-Lake -- a lovely old log chapel with a spectacular view of Auke Lake and Mendenhall Glacier in the background.
Continue along the Juneau road system and bike path to the west side of Mendenhall Glacier for a beach stop. At the visitor area on the east side of Mendenhall Glacier, you will ride along a one-mile trail through the rain forest.
Next, travel by van to Merchants Wharf -- an old seaplane hangar in downtown Juneau and a landmark in aviation history. Here, you will taste award-winning beers from microbreweries around Alaska.
