On May 13, 2022 I ventured up a completely accessible Mt Roberts Tramway and enjoyed some of the most spectacular scenery I have seen anywhere in the world. Despite the rainy, sleety weather, the views were magnificent.
Only a five minute scooter ride from Royal Caribbean’s Quantum of the Seas, I purchased a day pass ticket for $45 and was up the 3,819 foot mountain in less than 10 minutes. At the top was a bar and restaurant, a film on native Americans of the area, a giftshop, a nature trail and the views.
Please note: a cruise ship excursion ticket was not required and buying direct from Mt Roberts saved me 30%. And, I was only 4th in line so I “wasted” about 2 minutes getting my ticket. Getting on and off the tram itself, since I was on a scooter, I was escorted to the front of the line and given my choice of location for the best views.
On my next trip to Juneau, I would hope for nicer weather and plan to go up Mt Roberts again.
