Shore Experiences by Seabourn: Juneau, Alaska

Have you experienced one of our optional special Shore Experiences by Seabourn? Each of these amazing tours provides the highest level of quality, safety, convenience and value you expect from Seabourn.

When you book our Taku Glacier Lodge, Glacier Seaplane Discovery & Yoga: A Mindful Living Tour from Juneau you will experience the journey of a lifetime – including seaplane-only access to Alaska's famous Taku Glacier Lodge, a ride on a classic, powerful aircraft, a true wilderness setting, five massive glaciers, bears, a perspective on Alaska's vivid history with dog sledding roots, a seafood feast, and exclusive glacier-view dining.

You will fly in a classic de Havilland seaplane (floatplane) over five breathtaking glaciers flowing from the Juneau Ice Field, deep blue crevasses, snowcapped mountains and the lush Tongass National Forest. Seeing glaciers from the air is a must-do in Alaska, and doing so by authentic Alaska bush plane is the quintessential Alaskan experience.

The Taku River is your 'runway' when landing at the elegantly rustic and historic Taku Lodge, built in 1923 and located across the river from the five-mile wide Taku Glacier. This is Juneau's largest glacier and one of only a few advancing glaciers in the world.

You will savor a feast of fresh, wild Alaska salmon grilled to perfection (chicken alternative available), Taku baked beans, coleslaw, pioneer fruit compote, fresh herb biscuits and sourdough bread, all made from scratch. Drinks will be chilled and served with authentic glacier ice and special-recipe ginger cookies to complete the meal. The aroma of the alderwood grill attracts not only human visitors, but also wild black bears.

Guests can also join a certified yoga instructor for a 20- to 30-minute soulful yoga session while communing with outstanding views of a blue-hued glacier and wild Alaska while adopting poses that are both relaxing and invigorating. All the while, reflecting the peaceful serenity surrounding in your heart, body and mind.

Guided interpretative nature walks offer the ability to stroll the trails or soak in the serenity of a place barely touched by time before your return flight to Juneau. All of this can be done with this exclusive combination tour of the Juneau area's premier attractions.

Be sure to experience this extraordinary shore experience on one of our 2019 Alaska & British Columbia cruises. Once you have booked your cruise, you can easily book your shore excursions. We recommend booking early for the best selection.
