Mendenhall Glacier Float Trip 

Gentle Alaskan White Water Rafting! Juneau’s Mendenhall Glacier, Lake and River! Fun for Beginners and Experienced Alike! A lot of scenic floating - a little white water rafting!

Mendenhall Float Trip This is an exciting, yet gentle introduction to white water rafting, fun for beginners and experienced rafters of all ages. The adventure begins with a tour to Mendenhall Lake where you’ll have an excellent view of the glacier, one and a half miles wide and 150 feet high at the face. Near the shoreline, suit up with rain gear, life jacket and rubber boots. Each raft carries eight to twelve people and is rowed by an experienced guide.

Floating past the Mendenhall Glacier on its iceberg studded lake, you will be treated to spectacular views of hanging glaciers, towering peaks and glacial topography. As you float down the river you will encounter stretches of moderate rapids that add excitement to the trip. An entertaining guide will explain the natural phenomena at work in this scenic valley.

Going ashore you will enjoy an Alaskan-style snack featuring salmon spread, reindeer sausage, cheese, crackers and apple cider. Where the river meets the tidewater, you will turn in your rafting gear and return to town by motorcoach. Suitable for all ages and no prior experience necessary, just good health and an adventurous spirit!
