Goldbelt Tram. The adventure begins at the cruise ship dock in downtown Juneau where you board Southeast Alaska’s only aerial tramway. Adorned in traditional Tlingit artwork, the tram takes you on an exhilarating ride above the Southeast Alaska rainforest to the 1800 foot level of Mount Roberts. At the top is Shaa Hít, the Mountain House. It is nestled among towering Sitka Spruce trees on the edge of the grasses and wildflowers of the sub alpine meadow.
Goldbelt Tram Gifts isn’t your typical gift shop, it’s also part museum and gallery. It is located at the top of the Goldbelt Tram. You can watch Native artisans working on Alaskan jade, red & yellow cedar, argillite, beading, authentic Tlingit artwork and learn about the indigenous way of life that has existed for hundreds of years. Take the Tram to find Juneau’s most authentic selection of gifts.
Dine with a view or enjoy your favorite beverage at the Timberline Restaurant offering locally brewed beers, an all-you-can-eat crab, and fresh oysters (in season).
Several well maintained and scenic trails begin at the Nature Center, where you can stop by to pick up maps and get information about the many hiking options.
At the Juneau Raptor Center display you can visit an education eagle up close. A naturalist is available to provide information and answer questions.
Learn about the complex Tlingit way-of-life through the award winning film, “Seeing Daylight,” shown free every half hour in the Chilkat Theater.
