Traveler's Guide to Juneau, Alaska
Situated in Southeast Alaska between the vast expanse of the Juneau Icefield and the Gastineau channel, Juneau is the isolated capitol city of Alaska. The city itself boasts two cruise ship ports of call, an international airport, as well as being a serviced stop along the Alaska Marine Highway state ferry system. This type of accessibility makes Juneau highly convenient, since the city is only reachable by sea or air.
