Summer in Juneau, short and green and fragrant, is no time for hanging around inside. Local outfitters are eager to help you find an activity that suits you. Getting out into the wilderness is the quickest way to understand why people settled here: Hike across a glacier, bounce across a pristine lake on a hovercraft or take an adrenaline-charged float trip down a river swollen with snow melt. Let sled dogs pull you along fir- and birch-lined paths. Paddle a sea kayak or Tlingit canoe beneath a glacier. Take advantage of it all—you’ve arrived in outdoor paradise.
