Take a thrilling helicopter tour of Alaska's magnificent glaciers before landing on one to explore it up close. This Alaska helicopter icefield excursion is perfect for adventurers of all ages.
To start off your helicopter icefield Juneau tour, the helpful and courteous ground crew will help you board your modern helicopter before take off on this fantastic Juneau glacier tour. In Alaska, helicopter tours are only the first step on your journey into the wild. Your experienced pilot will fly you over the enormous ice formations, deep-blue crevasses, and glistening ice rivers of Alaska while pointing out the once in a lifetime views out each window.
Your Juneau shore excursion will take you over the spectacular rock formations and icefalls of the Juneau Icefield as it heads toward the Herbert, Taku, Lemon, or Norris Glacier. Depending on weather conditions, your skilled pilot will choose the best glacier to touch down on, so you can do a little ice exploration.
Upon reaching your destination, your expert pilot becomes your knowledgeable guide, shutting down the helicopter to escort you on an informative, relaxing walk across the glacier. Your guide will give you some details on your natural surrounding and deep history of these immaculate ice formations. Snowshoes are provided to give you an authentic Alaskan experience on the frozen glacier.
After 20 minutes or so strolling the blue-hued face of the glacier, you'll climb back aboard the helicopter and lift off, watching your tracks in the snow disappear below you as you climb high into the crisp, cool air of Alaska. Your helicopter tour continues as you head back to the heliport and snap pictures of the breathtaking scenery of the Alaskan wilderness on the way.
The Juneau helicopter excursion lasts approximately one hour from the time it lifts off until it returns to the heliport, but will vary depending on which glacier your pilot determines to be the best on the day of your tour, based on weather and glacier conditions.
See the glaciers before they disappear on this truly unforgettable Juneau tour of Alaska's icy giants. Get the full picture of these behemoths from the helicopter before landing amongst the glaciers to get a greater understanding of their majesty.

It was awesome! We both loved it! It's fun being up in a helicopter. It was great having special boots on to walk around on the icefield and explore some. Highly recommend.

It was interesting. I think they stuff too many people in the helicopter to the point where it was uncomfortable. One on the glacier, it was awesome. The pilot was very knowledgeable and friendly. The people driving the pick up vans could be a little more personable. Overall it was fun. A little pricey for what you get.
