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.

Fantastic ! Great pilot, knowledgeable , friendly and great photographer as well. This was the highlight of our Alaska trip and is a do not miss experience. As an aside, I had trouble deciding whether to book the helicopter tour through Royal Caribbean or Viator. I do not recall what led me to choose Viator, it may have been the slightly lower price. When we got off the ship for the excursion we first encountered the contact person for the Cruise ship helicopter excursion. She was there advising cruisers that their trip was cancelled due to inclement weather. However, she stressed to us to wait for a Coastal Helicopter Rep. our trip, and we had no intention of not waiting because they have several glaciers they can fly to and can fly further out to a glacier, stressing our tour may not be cancelled. Well ours was not cancelled and we really had a fantastic experience. Thanks Coastal Helicopters !!!!

Our pilot was Seth who took us around to see amazing views of everything, took photo's for all of us and was just a really nice guy. I would only say that I was a little disappointed with the amount of time we had on the glacier but I think I just didn't want to leave it was wonderful to be there. Highly recommend.
Thanks for great memories.
