Mendenhall Glacier, Hatchery & Salmon Bake
Information not currently available.
Approximately 4 Hours
Travel through Juneau's picturesque downtown to the mighty Mendenhall Glacier, a moving river of ice with rugged crevasses. Visit Macaulay Salmon Hatchery and learn about the importance of Alaska's salmon and the impact these amazing fish have on the environment and economy of the 49th state.
Enjoy great eagle viewing and the variety of local marine life in aquariums. Then you'll board your motor coach 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 alder wood fire. Also enjoy parmesan chicken, cheesy au gratin potatoes, baked beans with reindeer sausage, wild-rice pilaf, a variety of fresh salads, corn bread and lemonade, coffee or tea. (Beverages are available at an additional charge.)
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.
Not advisable for guests using a wheelchair due to uneven terrain at the salmon bake. Bring a warm jacket. Restrooms are available. Time at the glacier is approximately 75 minutes.
