What You Can Expect
Soak up unforgettable views as you fly over icefalls and rock formations. Gain insight into Alaska’s natural history and meteorology from your pilot-guide.
Then, your pilot navigates to Herbert Glacier, Taku Glacier, Lemon Glacier or Norris Glacier, depending on weather conditions. Touch down right onto the glacier surface. Leave the helicopter and do something few people get to do — take a guided walkabout on a glacier nestled high in the mountains, covered with snow and ice. Your pilot-guide points out notable landmarks and explains the local geology.
Take your final picture of your stellar surroundings and step back aboard the helicopter. Enjoy the bird’s-eye perspective during your return flight to Juneau. Your 2.5-hour Juneau shore excursion ends with van transport back to the cruise terminal.

Absolutely fabulous trip!
Service provided was very professional from start to finish. Our pilot was very professional at put us at ease and was very knowledgeable about the area.
This trip was the highlight of our whole vacation and one well worth doing!
Highlight of our trip. We were the only ones on top of a glacier on a beautiful day. It was amazing!!
This was really fantastic. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The ride was SOOOO smooth it was really great I have previously done a Kauai tour by helicopter unrelated to Viator that was a bit bumpy and tough on the stomach. Our pilot Sean did a great job including narration and taking photos for us, and I really felt in good hands. The glacier was amazing, amazing, amazing, and Alaska is just beautiful. Recommend.
Exceeded our expectations!! Great customer service, on schedule, landed right on the glacier, pilot answered our questions and explained what we were seeing. Worth every penny and we'd do it again in a heartbeat.
The helicopter ride was very comfortable. The view was spectacular, and landing on the glacier was so amazing. Our pilot was very informative and very happy to take photos of us on the glacier. What a remarkable trip.
Fantastic excursion. Couldn't have asked for a better one unless I had taken a longer one. Guide was super. Very informed and friendly.
Best tour ever!! The experience of walking in the glacier was amazing and the view from the top amazing!
This adventure was the highlight of our Alaska adventure. The entire staff was knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. The scenery was spectacular! Well organized and first rate equipment. A must do event!
It was a little rainy on our trip but that is to be had this time of year in Alaska. Our pilot was very good and made everyone feel comfortable. Once we landed on the glacier, it was a sight to see.
