Icefield Helicopter Excursion

Arriving

Juneau icefield helicopter tours 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 and around one hundred smaller ones! The Icefield Helicopter Excursion is the most popular of the helicopter tours in Juneau and features a full hour of unforgettable flightseeing. Your helicopter heads for either the Herbert, Taku, Lemon, or Norris Glacier, where your pilot guide will gently touch down on the glacier itself, shut down the engines, and conduct you on a fascinating and informative walk in this other-worldly, frozen environment. The remote beauty of frozen rivers of ice backed by rugged, ice-capped mountain peaks is truly spell-binding, and with helicopter tours in Juneau like this one, you get to experience a 360-degree aerial view, take a walk on a glacier, experience the thrill of a helicopter ride, and encounter a heart-stopping landing right on one of the largest glaciers in the Juneau Icefield!

Dock-to-dock transportation is included, and just a short ride from the cruise docks takes you to the helicopter base, where you’ll be greeted by your pilot/guide and taken through some brief safety instructions. 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. Juneau icefield helicopter tours 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 without additional activities such as dogsledding or airboat rides.

 

For a helicopter adventure combined with glacier dogsledding, you might consider our Helicopter & Dogsled Glacier Excursion.

    First Helicopter TourIt was amazing! My wife and I felt totally at ease, and enjoyed the entire ride. This is the only true way to experience a glacier, plus you get to drink pure glacier water. Would highly recommend this adventure!

    3rd Helicopter Excursion I've taken - poor value comparativelyThis is my 3rd helicopter excursion in the last few years, first one was over the Grand Canyon, 2nd was over Kauai, and then this one. This was the most expensive of the 3 (by far, almost $200 more), and the least satisfying, and DEFINITELY the shortest ride (no more than 15 minutes each direction). The other two rides were well over an hour, with some truly breathtaking moments (i.e., dropping into the crater - the same one used in the first Jurassic Park movie). Here? VERY short flight up to a glacier, down we go, poke around on the ice for about 20 minutes, then back. Nice enough group of people, and a well run operation, but SERIOUSLY overpriced. $350 would have been alot closer to what it was worth.

    Must do!This excursion is a must do in Juneau! The staff is very proffesional beginning with the booking experience right on through to the actual flight. Our pilot was very knowledgeable and gave a very informative narration during the flight over the ice fields. He choose an area on the glacier away from other tours so we felt as though we were alone on this icy wonderland. The glaciers are absolutely majestic and beautiful. Thank you for a great excursion.

    A must do excursion!This was the highlight of our 7 day cruise. Definitely a bucket list item and much cheaper than anything close to it that was offered by the cruise line. Pilot was very informative and staff was helpful and friendly.

    SpectacularI took this excursion in July 2016 and it was perfect. The people that ran the tour were very professional and helpful. Our pilot, Jaimie, was very knowledgeable about the glacier and provided excellent information about our surroundings. Bring your camera because the photo opportunities are once in a lifetime. I can't recommend this enough.

    Fantastic trip to Juneau ice fieldsAmazing!!!!

    This excursion was the highlight of our stop in Juneau. Knowledgable, helpful staff. The helicopter ride over the ice fields to the glacier was breathtaking. Our pilot landed us in a spot on the glacier where the was not another helicopter so it felt like we were the only ones exploring! Don't miss this excursion!

    PhenomenalThis was the experience of a lifetime. The pilot narrated throughout the flight and engaged everyone. The info he shared was very informative. The flight was smooth and the landing on the glacier was flawless. He was very helpful offering to take pictures of everyone and sharing as much info as he could about the glacier. This is a trip I would recommend for anyone who is fortunate enough to make it to Alaska.

    How many passengers per helicopter?

    Answer: Each helicopter can seat up to 6 passengers, provided the weight and balance calculations work out in each aircraft.

    What if my tour group is larger than 6 people?

    Answer: There are several helicopters available at the base and can make accommodations for larger groups with advance notice. If your group exceeds 6 passengers and requires the use of multiple aircraft, we instruct the pilots to coordinate landing locations on the glacier so that you can have your landing time together.

    Why do you land on the Herbert Glacier?

    Answer: We find the Herbert Glacier to be of particular charm and seclusion. Most passengers on our helicopter tours feel like they’re the only people in the world while on their glacier landing, and we like to keep it unique and exclusive for everyone.

    Will the pilot get out with us?

    Answer: Definitely. Your pilot will act as your guide for your entire helicopter tour, including the time you’ll spend on the glacier. This allows for a truly focused tour experience.

    Will we see wildlife on the tour?

    Answer: There is a good chance wildlife will be seen during your tour, either in flight or while on the glacier. However, this is not a wildlife viewing tour and we cannot guarantee you will see wildlife.

    Can children come on the tour?

    Answer: Absolutely! We are more than happy to accommodate children of all ages and there are several car seats available for customers to use.

    What happens if the weather is too bad to fly?

    Answer: If the weather is just not cooperating and the pilots determine that it’s too bad to fly, we’ll do our best to reschedule you to a later time of day that works for you. If you choose not to reschedule or we can’t find a time that works for you, our refund policy clearly states that refunds due to weather canceled flights are refunded in full.

    What if I need extra help on the tour?

    Answer: Your pilot will be with you the entire tour, so they’ll be happy to lend a helping hand whenever necessary. If you require extra assistance, don’t hesitate to contact us ahead of your tour and discuss your particular needs.
