If you select hotel pickup, you’ll kick off your Alaskan experience with an informative and entertaining van ride from your Juneau hotel to the heliport to begin your amazing helicopter tour. Board a state-of-the-art helicopter and savor the excitement as you take to the skies!
Fly over the amazing rock formations and icefalls of the Juneau Icefield as you head toward Herbert Glacier, Taku Glacier, Lemon Glacier or Norris Glacier. Your helicopter flight will be narrated by your knowledgeable pilot so you can relax and soak in your natural surroundings. Your pilot will act as your guide for your entire tour, including the time you'll spend on your walkabout on the glacier.
When you land on the glacier, you’ll be escorted on a walk along the icefield nestled among mountain peaks that are blanketed in ice and show. Learn about the area that surrounds you and feel free to ask any questions you have about Alaska’s natural history, geology, meteorology and more. Be sure to dress warmly, as it can be quite cold on the glacier.
After your time on the glacier, savor more aerial views on your helicopter flight back to Juneau. Upon landing you’ll have the opportunity for final photos and time to warm up before enjoying a return van trip back to your hotel.
