Welcome to Juneau, where an abundance of scenic beauty and Alaska’s most accessible glaciers await you. Alaska’s capital city is situated at the foot of the Juneau Icefield, home to 38 major glaciers. In Juneau, adventures of all sorts are never far away. Glacier flightseeing, ice trekking, and even dog sledding are easily enjoyed throughout the summer. Over 700 humpback whales inhabit the region, making whale watching a top activity.
Quaint yet modern, Juneau’s rich cultural community features an impressive array of performing and visual arts. From First Friday gallery walks to folk music and dance, from light opera to world-class theater, symphony performances and outdoor concerts, the opportunities to stimulate your senses and renew your spirit abound.
Located in the largest temperate rainforest in the world, Juneau in summer is a cool, enjoyable climate, with the driest months being April, May and June. Temperatures range from lows in the 40s to highs in the 70s. Air conditioning is a foreign concept in this charming coastal community.
