What You Can Expect

Juneau Helicopter Tour and Guided Icefield Walk

Juneau Helicopter Tour and Guided Icefield Walk

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.

Breathtaking! This tour opened my eyes to the true beauty of glaciers, and I am so glad my friend convinced me to go. We drank ancient water trickling down the glaciers surface and tried to capture the magic of the moment with panning photos and videos. I had never ridden in a helicopter, and that was exciting too, but the glacier itself stole the show. We also witnessed bighorn sheep on the mountainside nearby.

Awesome excursion! Company picked us up from the cruise terminal and returned us. Our pilot was friendly and very informative. Don't worry about your shoes or extra clothing, the company has everything for you!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

Spectacular and so much fun. It was hazy all morning and I was afraid that it would be cancelled. But the afternoon turned clear and off we went. Our pilot was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. He took us to Herbert Glacier where there was no other air traffic and set us down flawlessly. There was ultimate quiet and you could hear the glacier movement. We even drank glacier water. This is a once in a lifetime experience and we would recommend it to everyone. The entire company staff was great!

It was a uniquely exhilarating experience to walk on the icefield. Our pilot was very informative on the trip to and from the glacier and assisted the group to ensure everyone's safety. The staff were extremely professional and actively engaged our group on what to expect and took excellent pictures.

Great. Fabulous experience. Our pilot seemed a little 'over' teh tourist but then it didn't matter as the experience was still great.

4 star rating: Recommended June 2014

An amazing adventure. The weather was perfect, the scenery was beautiful. The only drawback was flight was too crowed for the price we paid.
