      10 Day Trip - Algarve & Seville

      Alaska Dec 22, 2016 at 7:53 AM

Will spend a few days too in Anchorage after Fairbank. Any suggestions where and its a must to visit while in Alaska? Top priority is to try catch the northern lights. Recommended place to be? Thanks and hear from all of you.

    • Float plane

      by DianeP22 Online Now Jan 11, 2015 at 12:11 PM

      Going to Juneau in June. Debating whether to take a 5 glacier float plane tour or just go to Mendenhall Glacier?? I realize these are two different experiences. We will be on a cruise doing just the inside passage for the week. Guess I am wondering if we will see enough of glaciers on the cruise. Thanks so much. Of course any suggestions are appreciated.

      Is there a particular time of day (morning, noon, afternoon) that is better for seeing whales. I heard they were more active in the early mornings. Will be travelling last week of May. Is there fog to consider in the mornings.

      Best Highlights of Juneau

      Hi Folks. I'm headed up to Alaska in a few days. Starting from Juneau, we'll be boating up and down the inner passage. (Father in law has a boat up there)

      I've researched a bit about the Juneau area and have the general lay of the land. Any input on the BEST highlight that you would suggest is not to be missed?

      Also will be spending some time at Taku Lodge...suggestions for highlights around there would be great!

      Gold Creek Salmon Bake

      by Miss_Becky Online Now Aug 25, 2012 at 11:36 AM

      I am going to be visiting Juneau in a couple of weeks on a cruise line. I am thinking of attending the salmon bake and was wondering if any locals or tourists have any thoughts or comments about this place. Some say in their reviews that it's bad food and the facilty is not very kept up and others say it's great. For the price of45 I would like to get more info on this. Also would I need rain boots for this adventure? Trying to pack accordingly. Any help is greatly appreciated. I also will be there for about 9 hours so any suggestions on what to do on a budget. Also was thinking of going to the Alaskan beer company facility.

      When does the "blue bus" stop running from Mendenhall Glacier to the cruise ships in early June? Later in the evening (~7 or 8pm) are there taxis readily available when leaving the glacier? Or do you have to schedule one hours in advance? Or the city bus, is it available later if we walk the mile and a half to the bus stop?

      I will be arriving by cruise ship and been trying to find things to do without excursions. Heard a lot about Captain Larry @ Orca it worth booking. Does anyone know if Holland America books through them. Mendenhall Glacier, I want to see, should I do it by air or on foot. If so who should I use. Do you think I will have enough time to do both and use local transportation? Also I'm interested in doing the Zipline should i do it in Juneau or in Ketchiken? Hope you can help me out, don't know when I'll be back and want to do it right.

    • Questions about May trip

      by ujge7639 Online Now Jan 31, 2010 at 5:03 PM


      I am traveling to Alaska on a cruise ship and have a full day in Juneau. I have a couple of questions that I am hoping some people have feedback on:
      1). I will be in Junaeu on May 6th. I plan on going to Mendenhall Glacier. I noticed they have 3 shorter trails. The question I have is whether these trails (photo point, trail of time, and morraine ecology trail) are gromed (do they remove snow from the trails) or will you need to be prepared to walk on snow? Will it be warm enough to walk around on the trails?
      2). I have read up on Glacier Gardens and seen mixed reactions (tourist trap versus good attraction). Thoughts?
      3). Is Macaulay Salmon Hatchery worth a trip in early May when salmon aren't swimming up ladders?
