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 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.

WOW!!!!!!!!!! Do it...

It's not cheep, but well worth it. I've flown helicopters many times so that was not the really exciting part. Landing and walking around the glacier was. I would never have thought that standing on a huge chunk of ice would be so awe inspiring. Drinking from the melted ice was amazing.

The best tour. The pilot was amazing and set us down on a tiny flat area. Those people who did the trip from the ship didn't get to land. A perfect grey day which made the ice look even bluer

Truly one of the highlights of our trip. The crew at the airport was very friendly and helpful in getting us outfitted for our flight. The pilot was very knowledgeable and helpful.. For some of us, it was our first helicopter ride - which was great. It was not just a quick up to the glacier and back. The pilot took us around the area, showing us the sights, before landing on the glacier. We had never seen a glacier that close up. Never realized that there was so much running water involved with a glacier. Surprisingly, the water/ice was a very intense blue color in places.. This was an experience that we will not soon forget.
