Embark on a sightseeing tour as unique as your destination -- by Segway. Far away from traffic and crowds, explore a scenic alpine meadow trail by eco-friendly transport.
A 20-minute van ride transports you to picturesque Fish Creek Valley at Eaglecrest, Juneau's wintertime ski resort. A short training session will help acquaint you with your Segway X2 before gearing up and heading out on a Nordic ski trail, gliding through serene alpine meadows in the shadow of snow-capped peaks.
The Segway's balloon tires are ideally suited for the groomed gravel trail and provide a cushioned ride. Your guide will provide interesting facts about the flora and fauna unique to Alaska.
Several short stops will be made along the way for photos and to stretch your legs. The halfway point is breathtaking Fish Creek and its crystal clear, snow-melt waters. An easy 10-minute walk along the historic Treadwell Ditch Trail offers a chance to learn about the history of Juneau and its connection to the Gold Rush.
Enjoy a favorite local snack of salmon dip and crackers before the Segway ride back to base camp.
Following your Segway adventure, return to the pier.
