Encounter Alaska in 3 wilderness adventures – flightseeing, glacier hiking, and packrafting – in one day! This 5-hour tour is Juneau’s first multi-sport adventure of this kind.
Your adventure begins with boarding a six-passenger floatplane and taking off from the water on your way to Norris Glacier. Your flight will sweep towards the Taku Inlet, where you’ll head toward the Juneau icefields, seeing mountain goats, black bears, and moose as you fly by. Landing on a lake fed by the Norris Glacier, you’ll hike over terrain carved out by glaciers to a cove where your packraft will be waiting. You’ll be outfitted with single person packrafts, and receive a short training on paddling techniques from skilled guides, and make ready to launch into the water. Once paddling, you will pass the glacier, go around ice bergs, and take in being surrounded by the Alaskan wilderness landscape all around you.
As you near the glacier, you will beach your packraft right on the Norris Glacier, and guides will assist you into getting out of the packraft and into microspikes for the journey onto the glacier. Explore the otherworldly landscape of a glacier in a one-of-a-kind journey on foot, with incredible views of Norris and Taku glaciers. Glacier features come and go throughout the season, and each experience is unique, so prepare yourself to find anything from crevasses, glacier pools, moulins and other features. Upon completions of this singular experience on the glacier, you return to your packraft and paddle back to shore, where your floatplane awaits to bring you back to Juneau.
