Discover four of Alaska's most spectacular glaciers during this scenic and exhilarating flight-seeing tour.
Depart the pier for the brief transfer to the helipad. Upon arrival, and after your quick safety briefing and glacier boot fitting, you will board your helicopter for a unique flight-seeing tour over four of Alaska's most spectacular glaciers (weather and flight conditions permitting). The flight time on this flight-seeing adventure will enable you to see more of the majestic Juneau Icefield and its renowned glaciers.
Your pilot will fly you over the ice spires and pinnacles of the cascading, advancing or retreating glaciers. New picturesque areas emerge each day on this active glacial ice field. Your pilot will land on the Mendenhall glacier, where you will meet your glacier guide as you step out to explore this ancient landscape. As you peer down into a crevasse, watch for a glacial stream that emerges, then disappears, beneath the icy surface.
During the return trip, keep your eyes peeled for bears and mountain goats as you fly over the lush rainforest and alpine lakes surrounding Juneau. Upon arrival at the helipad, you will be transferred back to the pier.
Please note: Guests are advised to wear warm clothing and sunglasses. Glacier boots will be provided. This tour involves approximately 30 minutes of flight-time, and 20-25 minutes on the glaciers. The tour routes may vary depending upon the weather.
*Due to weight and balance limitations, passenger safety and comfort, passengers weighing 250 pounds or more may be assessed an additional surcharge of up to $150 to reserve extra space onboard the helicopter.
