The heli ride was magnificent! Seeing the Alaskan wilderness from that viewpoint really helped me appreciate the awesome force of nature. Our kids loved walking on the glacier. If you have the money I definitely recommend you make this excursion
This was a great trip and nice tour of the area from the helicopter - One thing that would make it better would be more time on the glacier itself. 45 minutes just went by too fast. Would have liked to cover more ground.

Helicopter flight was amazing - right at tree height on the hillsides over the water, then landing on the glacier. Then we walked on the glacier with a guide who gave wonderful information about the glacier. The surface was rough (frozen river of ice), and we saw some DEEP rifts in the ice. Fascinating trip. Be sure to dress warmly - and no gift shop on the glacier!
