Turn right into Airport car rental lot and an immediate left. Drive towards end of parking lot, our main office is located on the ground level. It is a greenish large hangar.

Hmm...we can’t seem to find this place. Please check the spelling, or choose another location.

This activity will end right where it started.We pick up at the Cruise Ship Terminals
Enjoy convenient pickup from Juneau port’s cruise terminal or meet at a central location, 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 Juneau shore excursion ends with van transport back to the cruise terminal.

Worry-free Shore Excursion: We ensure your timely return to the Juneau port for this activity. In the rare event your ship has departed, we arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call. If your ship is delayed and you are unable to attend this activity, your money is refunded. See our terms and conditions for full details.

I had a great experience flying with this group. I just had to show up and they provided any equipment that I needed. Our pilot was informative on what we were seeing and making sure we stayed safe in the glacier. This an amazing once in a life tour that I’ll never forget. PS - don’t forget to bring your water bottle to fill up with some fresh water!

Super bummed that the weather didn’t allow us to enjoy this trip. Company was kind enough to give us a full credit. We will definitely be back earlier in the year to give it a go! Employees were above and beyond in customer service!

Riding in a helicopter over the rainforest to the glacier was spectacular. Landed on a glacier, had a chance to fill up our water bottle with glacier water and walk on the glacier (carefully).

Great excursion guides and professional pilot! Actually walked safely for quite a way on a glacier. We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel on time so didn’t need to worry about the logistics.

Great view of Juneau and the mountains. Herbert glacier was breathtaking. Our pilot Dedra was great and knowledgeable. Walking on the glacier was totally something well worth it. Take a water bottle to taste the glacier water.

Dierdre, our pilot, was chill and confident. She's a great tour guide. The glaciers, massive. Pretty scary walking around without a guide though. It's absolutely amazing walking on the ice, the world's freshest drinking water, and awe inspiring scenery. Well worth the trip!!
