What You Can Expect

Juneau Shore Excursion: Helicopter Tour and Guided Icefield Walk

Helicopter Tour and Guided Icefield Walk

Enjoy convenient pickup from Juneau port’s cruise terminal, and listen to informative commentary from your driver en route to the heliport. After a safety briefing, board your helicopter for a ride into Alaskan landscapes difficult to reach by vehicle.

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.

Amazing experience. Very smooth ride. Only 5 people in our helicopter and the pilot acted as photographer once on the Glacier. Special boots meant we could walk around without sliding over. Flying over the glacier close up meant we could see the ice formations much better than from the bottom. The highlight of our Alaska holiday
