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.

Such a special trip! My now husband even surprised me with a proposal once out on the glacier and our pilot captured the whole thing. Highly recommend, especially if you are celebrating a special occasion. :

This was an amazing tour. All the staff were extremely friendly, helpful and professional. They provided shoe covers which were brilliant for walking on the ice on the glacier. There was also wet weather gear available but we were blessed with an amazing day. Because of the weather, we were able to land much further up the glacier. To be in a beautiful space with only the six passengers and pilot was amazing. We also flew over the Mendenhall glacier which was so packed with people. The view from the chopper was amazing. Highlight of our trip to Alaska.

My wife, son, and I have been on several excursions throughout our travels over the years, I would have to say that this one was one of the best ever. Everyone involved with the company was fantastic, from the bus driver to the helicopter pilot and everyone in between. The flight itself was amazing and the glacier walk is indescribable with words. I HIGHLY recommend this trip to anyone visiting Juneau.

Stick a fork in me, I and #39;m done! One of those things you must see and do before you die! Truly bucket list material!
Easy check-in process, all necessary clothing and shoe wear provided, and safety was bar none. Vistas were awe-inspiring. Landing and walk-around was breathtaking! Saved $$$ thru viator.

This tour was amazing! I can honestly say it was the highlight of our cruise. Juneau was our 2nd port and we met up with Coastal Helicopters staff at the dock. Our helicopter pilot was great and shared a wealth of knowledge with us. Would HIGHLY recommend this tour.
