Experience the stunning glaciers of Juneau from above on one of the best excursions in Juneau Alaska for seeing these massive rivers of Ice. The 5 Glacier Seaplane Exploration will take you from historic downtown Juneau, over it’s winding roads & mining history, to the massive Juneau Icefield. This 1,500 square mile chunk of ice is home to 36 glaciers. These include the Norris, Hole-in-the-Wall, East Tower, West Tower, and Taku Glaciers. As you fly over,  you’ll have aerial views of all 5 of these magnificent glaciers. Your aerial views will allow you to capture stunning crevasses, plunging meltwater falls, and unbelievably blue pools as you fly between Juneau’s surrounding peaks. And, don’t forget your cameras on this stunning experience; the 5 Glacier Seaplane Exploration is one you’ll surely want to remember.

Beginning with takeoff right from the historic docks of Juneau, you’ll receive a full narration from start to finish. First, you’ll go over Juneau’s rich history and the diverse Tongass National Rainforest. Then you and the narration that follows along will reach the Juneau Icefield. Here, your 5 Glacier Seaplane discovery reveals why it is one of the best excursions in Juneau Alaska. It is one of the only tours that allows you sweeping views of FIVE of the area’s stunning glaciers. And because everyone on the 5 Glacier Seaplane Exploration gets a window seat, you’ll have completely uninterrupted views! Keep a special eye out the window & ear to your headset as you reach the Taku Glacier. This is the only Juneau Glacier that is still advancing, and one of few in the entire world for that matter!

You’ll explore the stunning icy landscape around Juneau for a full 40 minutes before returning to Juneau for a thrilling landing right on the water. As one of the best excursions in Juneau Alaska, you’re sure to leave the 5 Glacier Seaplane discovery with a full camera & memories to last a lifetime.
