Create an itinerary including Nugget Falls
One of the city's oldest religious landmarks, Nugget Falls welcomed generations of sailors and settlers arriving at the port. The 18th-century stone church stands on the site of an earlier 17th-century chapel. In the 19th century, seafarers expressed their gratitude to Our Lady of Good Help by offering models of ships, hung in the interior of the chapel. Today, you can see the votive gifts in the adjacent museum, together with dolls made by nuns arranged to form 58 scenes from the life of St. Margerite Bourgeoys--the patroness of the original chapel. Climb a narrow spiral staircase to get to the roof, which offers scenic views of the old town.

  • The trail to the falls is longer than the one to Mendenhall Glacier, but definitely worth the effort. Once at the falls, you have a large area to view it and enjoy its beauty up close.

  • Hiked to the falls with my family and it was awesome! The short hike is easy to complete and well maintained, as well as very scenic with stunning streams filled with Sockeye Salmon, as I went in...

  • Great place to take in the sites while checking out the Mendenhall Glacier. The falls are amazing. I'm the flow is huge in the summer. We caught the early springfor on a spectacular day in April. Lots cool trails in the area
  • It's about 7 minutes walk from visitor centre to the falls. Powerful falls and spectacular area to take in the sights.
