As far as trams go, this tramway is rather expensive for a five-minute ride. But from a marketing point of view its location couldn’t be better. It whisks you right from the cruise-ship dock up 1800ft to the treeline of Mt Roberts, where you’ll find a restaurant, gift shops and a small theater with a film on Tlingit culture.
Or skip all that and just use the tram to access the stunning Mt Roberts alpine area, marked with trails and wildflowers. Alternatively, you could hike up the Mt Roberts Trail and take the tram down.
