Standing on the Mendenhall Glacier, looking out over the glacial fed lake at the beautiful scenery below. The morning sun is peaking up over the distance, spreading across the landscape. As the sun warms the lake, the fog begins to drift away and the day begins. It’s time to access the glacier by canoe, kayak, foot, or helicopter…
Now Place Yourself In…
A kayak paddling along the coastline in the Channel Islands State Marine Park. Off to the left you see water shoot straight up; it’s a whale! The inside passage has the richest humpback feeding grounds in Alaska. Keep an eye out for whales bubble feeding, orcas racing along the boat, sea lions claiming their spots on the beach in the sun, eagles soaring over, and salmon jumping out of the ocean water. After an exciting paddle, have a picnic on a remote Alaskan beach. Take the opportunity to explore tide pools and just enjoy nature on your own private island.
a whirlwind of Adventures…
Have happened so far but it is not over yet! Jump on a scenic float plane and head out to one of the largest concentration of brown bears in the world; the Fortress of the Bears. The plane will take you to Pack Creek Bear Sanctuary located on Admiralty Island. Choose your adventure, whether it be kayaking from Windfall Island into the sanctuary or landing directly at the beach by float plane. View the brown bears in their natural habitat as they forage for shrubs and berries or feed from the well stocked salmon streams!

Some Stats on the State Capitol
Juneau is unusual among U.S. capitals (except Honolulu, Hawaii) in that there are no roads connecting the city to the rest of Alaska or to the rest of North America (although ferry service is available for cars). The absence of a road network is due to the extremely rugged terrain surrounding the city.
