Pricing on the Bellingham to Juneau ferry
As this is one of the longest and most complex routes in the world (for the ferry nerds like us: Hirtshals to Iceland is a longer route), you won't be able to reach your destination for a low price. It's expensive but also simply the price it costs these days to travel this far. In our test booking, the price was $1622 for a single trip with a normal car.
