Juneau — 10 nights

Juneau is an unusual state capital in many respects.
When in Juneau, make a side trip to see Bartlett Cove in Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve, approximately Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve away. Spend the 22nd (Thu) exploring at Tracy Arm Fjord. The adventure continues: explore the striking landscape at Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center, catch a ride on Goldbelt Mount Roberts Tramway, observe the fascinating underwater world at DIPAC's Macaulay Salmon Hatchery, and take an unforgettable tour with a helicopter tour.

The Last Frontier
The country's largest state, Alaska is also its least densely populated. America's final frontier, the state lies on the Arctic Circle and features some of the highest mountains in the United States. Today, several million people flock annually to the state's pristine wilderness areas, which shelter a diverse plant and animal life and offer a great selection of things to do. Tailor-made for adventurous types wishing to leave civilization behind, Alaska can also be an extremely expensive vacation destination, with few transportation options and much of its land accessible only by plane or helicopter.
