Juneau is the scenic capital city of Alaska, located in the United States' frontier state. Unlike most capitals, there are no roads connecting Juneau to the rest of Alaska or North America, giving it an unhurried, off-the-beaten-path feel.

Where is Juneau?

Surrounded by lush green mountains and the azure waters of the Gastineau Channel, Juneau's natural beauty is staggering. Covering a larger area than the states of Delaware or Rhode Island, it is one of the largest municipalities in the USA, yet has a cosy local population of about 32,000 residents.

Whether it's a journey through the breathtaking Mendenhall Glacier, watching a performance at Perseverance Theatre, or savouring fresh-caught seafood, a trip to Juneau offers an enriching panorama of nature, history, and hospitality.

Mendenhall Glacier

Mendenhall Glacier is the most popular attraction in Juneau, a spectacular 13-mile-long glacier situated in the Mendenhall Valley, just 12 miles from downtown. The Visitor Center provides educational exhibits, while guided hikes, treks, and kayaking or canoeing trips allow closer exploration of this natural wonder that has to be seen to be believed.
