Description

Explore Juneau’s picturesque forests and mountains on this one-of-a-kind off the beaten path excursion. The Alpine Wilderness Trail Adventure by Segway takes you across Gastineau Channel to Douglass Island for 3 hours of Segway fun. This unique experience begins at Eaglecrest Alpine, Juneau’s own local ski area. From here, you will wander the paths carved for nordic ski trails to explore the forest, looking at local flora, fauna, and mountain views. Juneau segway tours are unique in letting you explore off the paved routes most tours of this kind are known for, with the balloon tires of the X2 segways perfectly designed to cushion your journey on the groomed gravel trails. As you continue on the Alpine Wilderness Trail Adventure by Segway, you’ll be up close and personal with nature, much more so than any bus tour, so listen carefully for eagle calls and keep your eyes peeled for any other wildlife. Your guides will take several stops along the way for photo opportunities, a short hike, & educational chats about the local area, so have your questions ready!

The Alpine Wilderness Trail Adventure by Segway begins with convenient pick-up right at the cruise docks. You will then travel to Eaglecrest Alpine for gear-up and safety information. Hoping on your segways, be ready for the off-the-beaten-track experience that only Juneau segway tours provide! Where else can you say you’ve gone off-road segwaying? Under the shadow of snow-capped mountains, you’ll glide through the forest, making several stops along the way until you reach your halfway point of Fish Creek. This crystal clear stream stems from fresh snowmelt & can be home to all five species of salmon. Hoping off your segway, you’ll take a 10-minute walk with your guide along Historic Treadwell Ditch to see the old-growth forests of the Tongass National Forest & learn about the gold rush that brought so many to Juneau. Finishing off your Alpine Wilderness Trail ADventure by Segway, you will head back down to Eaglecrest for convenient transfer right back to your ship!
