Juneau is a massive town with a tiny population in Alaska. Famous for its gold mining heritage, after the town was founded in the late 19th century, it offers a fascinating insight into this rich time in American history. But beyond the gold rush, there’s also a wealth of natural wonders to discover as you take in the majestic surrounds of the Alaskan scenery. The highlight is undoubtedly the Mendenhall Glacier – at 12 miles long and half a mile way, it may be slowly retreating but it offers breath-taking views and photograph opportunities galore.
In terms of wildlife, you can learn all about the local salmon species at the Macaulay Hatchery, or why not head out on a whale watching tour? With the sheer number of humpbacks and Orca whales that visit the region, you’re almost guaranteed to see them during the summer months. Or you can head inland with a traditional dog sledding excursion over the snowfields, offering a thrilling adventure amongst gorgeous landscapes. Juneau is also home to even more thrilling adventures, from ziplines to flightseeing, so the adrenaline junkies can see the spectacular views from a whole new angle.
The US Dollar is the official currency of Juneau. Juneau is 8 hours behind Greenwich Mean Time (GMT -8).
