Helicopter tours in Juneau are the best possible way to experience the breadth and beauty of this awe-inspiring region, as they provide the opportunity to see forty large glaciers in addition to around one hundred smaller ones! The Icefield Helicopter Excursion is the most popular of the helicopter tours in Juneau and features a half-hour of unforgettable flightseeing. Your helicopter heads for the Herbert Glacier, where your pilot guide will gently touch down on the glacier itself. Then, he’ll conduct you on a fascinating and informative walk in this other-worldly, frozen environment. Have your camera ready! Because the remote beauty of frozen rivers of ice backed by rugged, ice-capped mountain peaks is truly spell-binding. On this Icefield Helicopter Excursion, you’ll experience a 360-degree aerial view, a thrilling helicopter ride, as well as a walk on one of the largest glaciers in the Juneau Icefield!
As with all of our Juneau helicopter tours, dock-to-dock transportation is provided. Excitement builds on the 20-minute drive from the docks to the helicopter base! Once at the base, you’re fitted in glacier boots, greeted by your pilot/guide, and taken through a brief safety orientation. Don’t worry if this is your first helicopter flight! Any butterflies will soon be settled as you take off and become totally absorbed in the breathtaking beauty of the landscape below. Helicopter tours in Juneau are on the bucket list for most travelers to Alaska, and the Icefield Helicopter Excursion is perfect for those who want to experience the thrill of a helicopter flight and glacier landing in a short amount of time.
