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.

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.

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.
