What You Can Expect

Juneau Shore Excursion: Helicopter Tour and Guided Icefield Walk

Helicopter Tour and Guided Icefield

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 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.

We had an amazing time. We were lucky enough to have perfect weather and our pilot Michael was wonderful. He gave us a speculator view of the glacier and his narration was great! The staff on land were also quite nice and helpful.

We had great weather while on our Alaskan cruise and the day in Juneau was no different. Clear blue skies gave us beautiful views while flying to the glacier. Mike was our pilot and very helpful once we landed. I would not have brought boots for the glacier if I had known they give you boots to wear over your shoes. I thought those were optional but were not. We spent about 20 minutes or so on the glacier and about 10 mins or so flying out and back each way. I felt very safe and loved the helicopter ride as much as time on the glacier. A must do if on vacation. We were picked up at the port. The ride to the airport was longer than I thought it would be. We were able to be left off in town afterwards for eating and shopping and then caught a free bus back to the ship. A great day in Juneau.

Loved it! Family of 4 from 7 to 50 years old. All had an incredible time! They provided "shoes" to go over our normal shoes for climbing on the ice and there were jackets if we needed them. Great to know if you are packing light. The pilot was wonderful! He was informative and friendly. The whole organization was professional and organized. Remember to call 24 hours ahead to confirm. I highly recommend this tour, in fact I want to go again!!!!

My husband and two boys enjoyed this helicopter tour along with three other members of our family and it was the highlight of our Alaskan cruise vacation. They raved about the entire journey (ride was totally smooth, better than an airplane) and the time spent on the glacier was a thrill. The photos were amazing. The helicopter pilot was first rate and took a terrific group photo. I would not hesitate to recommend this excursion and this company. The cost was also half of the cost being charged on the cruise.

Very well-run tourist attraction. Well organized; they did not skimp on having enough staff, They offer boots with some extra traction and those turned out to be quite helpful.
