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
EXCELLENT CHOICE WE MADE!!! Pilot Pete from Idaho most professional and personable, gave information on the area of glaciers, and what we were seeing below as we flew in helicopter, recommended highly. Ground staff very friendly and accommodating!
Experience of a lifetime. Well worth every penny! The view was incredible, the glacier was amazing and drinking the glacier water was wonderful. Pilot was very informative. Helicopter was in great condition, boots provided were very helpful walking around and the staff was very personable. Would highly recommend this trip to anyone.
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.
Excellent trip! It was amazing to fly up and walk on Herbert Glacier.
Everything went just fine. The service was perfect from pick-up at the ship, preparation in the airport, flight to the glacier, stay in the glacier, flight back and return to ship.
I strongly recommend this experience to everyone, regardless of age.
Excellent tour and amazing sights. Our group was very lucky to have no rain and we were able to land on the Herbert glacier. Our guide, Graham, was a phenomenal pilot and guide. Told us about the terrain, the glaciers, the forests, shared a bit a bit his life.
Pick up form the port was right on time. Or driver was nice. Front office staff were nice, not overtly friendly. I would have liked a little more explanation for what was gong to happen, once we go to the airport, but once they had decided on the groups of people who would go in which helicopter, all went very smoothly. They were very safety aware for all of us. Overall a great experience.
Seeing the Juneau Icefield from above was spectacular and a truly unique experience. Our pilot/guide Ben provided great commentary on the glacier formations we were viewing from the air. Once we landed on Herbert Glacier he provided naturalist insights to add to our experience and knowledgeable answers to our questions. The company strongly emphasized safety and was incredibly efficient. We traveled with our two 20 something sons and this was the absolute highlight of our various excursions. Well worth the price for a once in a lifetime experience. Traveled on 8/22/17
We booked this tour to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and it didn't disappoint! Everything went like clockwork from our pick-up, to drop off at the helicopter site, the flight, and return to the ship. We were outfitted with great boots so glad because I thought my boots would be ok - HA! and could have borrowed a coat if we had needed it. The temperatures were mild and the wind was a light breeze, so no coat needed! Our pilot was fun and pointed out a lot of landmarks and things to see as we flew to the glacier. Upon landing, he gave us a few safety tips and then let us explore. We got to drink the flowing water, learned why the ice looks blue want to know? take the tour!, and take tons of pictures. Our pilot took pictures for everyone who wanted them, but was not hovering over anyone. We were probably on the glacier 30-40 minutes before we had to head back, but everyone was pleased to go because it was starting to sprinkle. The flight back was amazing as well and we took pictures of all of it. We highly recommend this tour as Hubbard Glacier is phenomenal and seeing it up close and personal is the trip of a lifetime!
This was the most exciting tour that I have ever done. The helicopter ride was so awesome and the glacier was breath taking. It is well worth the expense for this experience!
Well worth the $$$$ very safe and thorough.
Everyone needs to walk in a ice cube tray.
The trip was very memorable. We went there in August, and we were prepared light sweatshirt and light jacket needed here, which made it enjoyable. The helicopter ride was very smooth, I didn't get any motion sickness at all to which I'm prone. The view of the glacier up close it hard to describe. The word 'Awesome' comes close. We drank from one of the running/melting ice and it tasted clean and fresh.
Best experience of our entire Alaska tour. The only thing that would have made it better is perhaps a documentary about glaciers and a history of this specific glacier to view during the standing around time in the ready room. We need to capture this magnificent piece of nature before they are all gone.
You can't even begin to explain to someone how amazing it is to see the beauty of a glacier let alone walk on it. This was on my bucket list and I am so blessed to be able to have done this.
It was an amazing experience and have already shared with friends and family the memorable time on landing on the glacier.
Another wonderful tour booked through Viator! Fabulous time was had by all. Staff of Coastal Helicopters did a fantastic job of coordinating and was helpful with communication and scheduling of the pickup time and place. Everyone in the office was friendly and helpful and made sure everyone was having fun and ready to fly. Small group of 5 for the helicopter ride, and Captain Pete was fantastic as our pilot and our guide. It is always more fun when the guides are just as excited to be there as we were! Thanks for another great day.
