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 Mendenhall Glacier Helicopter & Guided Hike is among the most popular of the helicopter tours in Juneau and features a full-hour of unforgettable flightseeing and walking on the glacier. Your helicopter heads for the Mendenhall Glacier, where your pilot guide will gently touch down on the glacier itself. Here, you’ll meet your expert glacier guides who will 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 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 Mendenhall Glacier Helicopter & Guided Hike 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.
