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.

Breathtaking. Staff all the way around very friendly. Landed right on the glacier but the 20 minutes was too short to really take it all in. Something we will never forget!!

Our group was split on two different helicopters. It wasn't a big deal to us because our helicopters took off about the same time and landed on the glacier at the same time. Our pilot Scott was excellent and narrated what we were seeing. When we landed on the glacier he grabbed the other half of our group and ran us all over the glacier to get the most AMAZING pictures EVER! He challenged us to do push ups to drink the glacier water and it was AWESOME, but my hands were freezing cold. Your time on the glacier is very limited, so take it all in! It was a beautiful and a once in a lifetime experience. My only regret is that we didn't add on the mushing dogs. I highly recommend this tour!

Wonderful time! We had Scott as a guide around the glacier and there was no length he wouldn't go to make sure we had great pictures to capture the moment. He was very dynamic and enthusiastic. Highly recommend this tour, you will not see something so amazing elsewhere!
