Juneau

— 2 nights

America's Largest Capital Area

Juneau is an unusual state capital in many respects.
Take a break from the city and head to Eagle Beach and Perseverance National Recreation Trail. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Photography Tours and Mount Roberts Trail. There's much more to do: head outdoors with Best Damn Charters, observe the fascinating underwater world at DIPAC's Macaulay Salmon Hatchery, and sample the tasty concoctions at Alaskan Brewery and Bottling Company.

To find reviews, maps, traveler tips, and tourist information, you can read our Juneau trip planner.

Belgrade, Serbia to Juneau is an approximately 20-hour flight. You'll gain 10 hours traveling from Belgrade to Juneau due to the time zone difference. Prepare for a bit cooler weather when traveling from Belgrade in June: high temperatures in Juneau hover around 20°C and lows are around 10°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 17th (Thu) early enough to travel to Haines.

The Last Frontier
The country's largest state, Alaska is also its least densely populated. America's final frontier, the state lies on the Arctic Circle and features some of the highest mountains in the United States. Today, several million people flock annually to the state's pristine wilderness areas, which shelter a diverse plant and animal life and offer a great selection of things to do. Tailor-made for adventurous types wishing to leave civilization behind, Alaska can also be an extremely expensive vacation destination, with few transportation options and much of its land accessible only by plane or helicopter.
