This helicopter flightseeing tour with glacier landing will fly you over the massive Juneau Icefield where you will see spectacular rock formations and icefalls. Your experienced pilot will be your glacier guide while viewing awe-inspiring moulins, crevasses, icefalls, ponds and streams on the glacier.
Your tour begins with a short transfer to a comfortable and spacious heli-base. Here you will be geared up with glacier boots and given a safety briefing by friendly and attentive tour attendants. Load up into a state of the art helicopters and begin your bucket-list worthy adventure. Highly-trained pilots will lift you off the ground and safely transport you over some of the most breathtaking sights you have ever seen. Lush green rainforests, alpine ridges, and glacier valleys pass beneath you as you make your way to the main attraction, the glacier. Before touching down, you will have a birds-eye view of the awe-inspiring blue glacier ice, deep crevasses, spectacular ice falls and the jagged peaks of the Mendenhall Towers.
During the 25 minutes you spend on the glacier you will learn how glaciers are formed and what makes them so spectacular. The tour will allow you to explore melt-water pools, feel glacial silt, and capture all of the beauty on your camera. The adventure isn’t over yet; join your pilot in the helicopter for a ride back to our base to take in the Alaskan beauty from the air one last time. Leaving the glacier behind you will take with you memories that will last a life-time.
