4x4 Adventure: Soak in all the scenic beauty the coastal town of Juneau has to offer in the comfort of your own Jeep Wrangler. Each vehicle includes a digital guide with hours of directions and informative background of Juneau’s most treasured sites. Meander along the Gastineau Channel to explore the bright blue ice of Mendenhall Glacier, where you may want to stroll along the nearby trails that lead to Nugget Falls or abundant wildlife. Experience the rainforest as you drive along the coast to the Shrine of St. Therese. There, you will find a quaint cobblestone church nestled in the woods and whales are often seen bubble feeding off the coast. Each tour can be customized and typically includes two additional destinations, such as the quiet and secluded beaches of Eagle Beach or a drive along Douglas Island. At the conclusion of each tour, the guide will provide directions back to the starting point, which is across the street from the central cruise ship dock. See all of Juneau’s exquisite beauty on your own private excursion.
Accessibility: Tour is ambulatory accessible. You must be able to take a few steps (up/down) and walk short distances. A collapsible wheelchair or electric scooter can be stored in the cargo space of a 4-door Wrangler.
Requirements & Restrictions: Each party must have at least one licensed driver that is 25 years of age or older and must present a valid driver’s license (photo/digital copies are not accepted). International driver’s licenses are accepted.
What to Bring: Umbrellas and disposable rain ponchos are provided, but please dress in layers as Juneau can be cold and wet. Comfortable walking shoes are recommended.
Good to Know: The 4-door Wrangler can seat up to five guests and has an automatic transmission. Each excursion is 4.5 hours and the tour operator will program four locations into the guide that is determined by weather and time of year. Guests are welcome to select alternate locations if they choose. The digital guide is mounted onto the dash for directions and audio plays through the Jeep’s speaker system. Infant and toddler car seats are available without charge; please provide advanced notice if possible. Typically, there are two other locations, which may include: Eagle Beach, Gold Creek, Douglas Island, Governor’s Mansion, DIPAC Salmon Hatchery, Saint Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church or the end of the road. Hard-top Jeeps are easier for loading wheelchairs and are limited, so please request it in advance at the Shore Excursions desk once on board. The 4-door is recommended for guests with young children in car seats. All recommended routes include Mendenhall Glacier and Shrine of St. Therese.
