Beyond treks and trails, there are many possibilities to further explore the incredible Alaskan territory, and there is every level of activity from easy to strenuous. The Juneau Marina houses companies offering float plane rides to the Alaskan outback, including dining on freshly caught grilled salmon at a remote lodge in the ice field. In late summer months there are boat tours to meet whale pods and hoist crab pods. There are also boat and kayak tours to calving glaciers and eagle nesting grounds in Tongass National Forest. Or simply watching the tide fluctuate at Douglas Island’s Old Treadwell Water Tower and touring the downtown, historic capital of Alaska.
