A once in a lifetime adventure

Having not been to Alaska before I thought it would be awesome to walk on a glacier. The cruise line we were traveling with had this same excursion but at a higher price. It was very easy to find the reps for the tour where they drove us to the Juneau Airport. They provided us with glacier walking boots and had extra clothing if we needed. After a safety briefing, we were put in our seating positions with 6 per helicopter. Our pilot (Casey) and tour guide was awesome. Amazing views during the 15 minute flight than took us around the glacier. Provided great history and facts about the area.

This is my favorite excursion that I have ever done. The Staff and the pilot are very organized, professional and friendly. I enjoy it so much that this was my second time in two years. I took a friend of mine who has never done this before and she was in awe of the entire experience.

This was a very fun experience, but a little short for the cost. The flight was less than 10 minutes in each direction, and we spent maybe 20-25 minutes on the glacier. The views were awesome and our pilot (Josh) was great! The logistics of the operation were seamless, and all of the staff was very friendly and helpful!

Great (but brief) trip to Herbert Glacier

Overall, it was a great experience. We felt very safe and well-prepared for the flight by the crew who provided spikes for our shoes and other safety information. We landed on a glacier and were alone, which was nice as we weren't tripping over others. We enjoyed great views, good information about the glacier from the pilot, and some nice photos. We just wish (1) it had been a little longer (seemed like about 15 total minutes on the glacier, though it was probably a bit longer, maybe 20-25 minutes?), and we didn't really walk around much on the glacier and, (2) we would have flown around a little to see a few other parts of the glacier, not just the place where we landed. Maybe it was because we shared the trip with another family with younger children, so it was less adventurous. Overall, we recommend it!

We had some weather come in, but our trip went quite well despite that. Our pilot and guide did an absolutely marvelous job of making sure we had a safe and fun adventure. My 87-year-old mother was with us and he escorted her across the glacier to ensure she was safe and also got to see as much as we saw.
