Looking for a Juneau day tour just perfect for your friends and/or family? First, enjoy a historical tour of Juneau including the state capitol.

Now it is time for you to try your luck and learn how to pan and capture the full Alaska Gold Rush experience. The tour ends with a delicious meal at the Gold Creek Salmon Bake. The salmon bake has a beautiful setting, in lush rain forest alongside a creek, under translucent domes that protect you from the elements, rain or shine. Savor the aroma of wild salmon, grilling slowly over fires of fragrant alder wood. Choose from grilled salmon, chicken, baked beans with reindeer sausage, wild-rice pilaf, potatoes and a selection of other sides, salads and beverages. This Juneau day tour departs from the Mt. Roberts Tram near the cruise ship dock.
