Course Location

Juneau Alaska stands on one of the largest wilderness areas in the United States. Here you can spend your time viewing wildlife, taking the fishing trip of your life, exploring atop glaciers or enjoying the city’s shops, restaurants and artistic flare.

Planning Your Trip

The University of Alaska Southeast has two campuses in Juneau, one downtown and one in Auke Bay. This course will be held in a classroom at the Recreation Center in the Auke Bay campus.

Lodging rentals abound in Juneau and the surrounding area. There are many options for hotels, airbnbs, and there is even a hostel. Although there are also many options for camping, we don't recommend it this time of year.
