Juneau, Alaska-port

In 1880, Joe Juneau and Richard Harris were prospecting for gold with the help of Indian guides. Here they discovered nuggets “as large as beans” at the mouth of the aptly named Gold Creek. Out of their discoveries came three of the largest gold digs in the world where more than $150 million in gold was mined. Juneau’s surrounding beauty and natural wonders have attracted cruise ship travelers for over a century, with steamship companies bringing tourists here since the early 1880’s.

Savor Juneau's unique local flavors during this delightful tasting tour and cooking demonstration in Alaska's capital city.

Depart the pier for the drive through Juneau. Your guide will relate the area's colorful history as you pass by the Governor's House and Capitol Building, then continue on to the magnificent Mendenhall Glacier. This monumental river of glistening ice towers is 1.5 miles in height, hundreds of feet thick and the only glacier accessible by road in Southeast Alaska.

Upon arrival, you will visit the Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center. Here, you will find exhibits, interactive videos, and panoramic views and photo opportunities of the glacier. U.S. Forest Service staff will be available to familiarize you with this unforgettable attraction.

Next, a visit will be made to the Alaskan Brewing Company, internationally acclaimed for its ales and seasonal beers. During your guided tour, you will learn about the history of brewing in Alaska, view the facility's brewing, fermentation and bottling systems, and sample the award-winning beers on tap.

Your tour will conclude with a visit to the Chez Alaska Cooking School. Upon arrival, the head chef will demonstrate the preparation of an authentic Alaskan dish made with fresh Alaska seafood, and share cooking secrets using specialized ingredients. At the conclusion of the cooking demonstration, you will be invited to sample the chef's creation before re-boarding your coach for the return drive to the pier.
