Explore Southeast Alaska's remote peaks and glaciers from high above and on foot during this Pilot's Choice helicopter and walking tour.

After boarding your helicopter, you will lift off from the helipad and begin your helicopter adventure. As you soar high above Southeast Alaska's beautiful wilderness, you will take in spectacular views and photo opportunities of the lush rainforest, incredibly deep valleys and awe-inspiring peaks. Your pilot will also provide you with an eagle's-eye view of high alpine lakes, icefalls hanging from sheer cliffs, and some of the Juneau Icefield's most remote peaks and glaciers, including Wonderland, Glacier King, Mendenhall Towers and Devil's Paw. The itinerary is flexible; your pilot will create the best possible route given the prevailing weather and glacier conditions on the day of your tour.

Next, you will have an opportunity to appreciate the exquisite beauty of this ancient landscape by touching down in two different locations, then continuing your tour on foot. During these landings, you will learn about the geological and environmental processes that are hard at work creating moraines, crevasses, seracs and glaciers.

Following your tour, you will be returned to the helipad.

Please note: Guests are advised to dress warmly in layers, and bring sunglasses, gloves and a hat from the ship. Glacier-walking boots will be provided. Due to heightened security, no bags, purses, fanny packs, etc. will be allowed on the helicopters. This tour involves approximately 50 minutes of helicopter time, with 15 minutes at each landing. Flight routes, landing sites, the number of landings and time spent on glaciers may be changed at the pilot's discretion and may vary due to weather or glacier conditions. Window seats are not guaranteed.

*Due to weight and balance limitations, passenger safety and comfort, passengers weighing 250 pounds or more may be assessed an additional $150 to reserve extra space onboard the helicopter.
