What You Can Expect

Best Juneau Shore Excursion: Helicopter Tour and Guided Icefield Walk

Helicopter Tour and Guided Icefield Walk

When your cruise ship docks at the Juneau port, you’ll be picked up from the cruise terminal and 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.

Enjoy stellar aerial views as you soar over rock formations and icefalls while learning about the spectacular sights from your knowledgeable pilot, who’ll act as your guide for your entire experience, including your landing and walkabout on the glacier. Make your way by helicopter to either the Herbert Glacier, Taku Glacier, Lemon Glacier or Norris Glacier, descending to the glacier below for the second part of your tour.

When you land, you’ll be taken on a serene walk along the glacier surface, nestled among mountain peaks blanketed in ice and snow – a beautiful sight! You'll learn about your surroundings and be free to ask your pilot-guide 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 icefield, savor more aerial views on your helicopter flight back to Juneau. Upon landing, you’ll have the oppurtunity for final photos and time to warm up before enjoying a return van trip back to your cruise port.

Awesome views.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

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.

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.
