Day Trips – Glaciers, Bears, & Whales

Need something fun to do while you are visiting Alaska?

Above & Beyond Alaska day trips are sure to give you the experience of a lifetime. Spend a day in the Alaskan wilderness, exploring its rich environment by sea or by foot. Perfect for short stays and for beginners, our day trips take you through the various ecosystems of Juneau.

Go kayaking on the Glacier Lake, or explore the quiet, uninhabited coastlines of the Channel Islands Marine Park. Our trekking packages take you through the Mendenhall Glacier and let you conquer the vertical ice wall at your own pace.

We also offer day trips by helicopter or floatplane. This is for travelers who want to revel in the majestic aerial views of the frozen landscapes below. This is a great opportunity to safely observe the brown bears of Admirality Island or to simply take in the impressive features of Juneau’s famous ice field.
