Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Enjoy convenient pickup from Juneau port’s cruise terminal or meet at a central location, and listen to informative commentary from your driver en route to the heliport. After a safety briefing, board your helicopter for a ride into Alaskan landscapes difficult to reach by vehicle.

Soak up unforgettable views as you fly over icefalls and rock formations. Gain insight into Alaska’s natural history and meteorology from your pilot-guide.

Then, your pilot navigates to Herbert Glacier depending on weather conditions. Touch down right onto the glacier surface. Leave the helicopter and do something few people get to do—take a guided walkabout on a glacier nestled high in the mountains, covered with snow and ice. Your pilot-guide points out notable landmarks and explains the local geology.

Take your final picture of your stellar surroundings and step back aboard the helicopter. Enjoy the bird’s-eye perspective during your return flight to Juneau. Your Juneau shore excursion ends with van transport back to the cruise terminal.

Helicopter, rainforest and glacier

Riding in a helicopter over the rainforest to the glacier was spectacular. Landed on a glacier, had a chance to fill up our water bottle with glacier water and walk on the glacier (carefully).

Great excursion guides and professional pilot! Actually walked safely for quite a way on a glacier. We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel on time so didn’t need to worry about the logistics.

Great view of Juneau and the mountains. Herbert glacier was breathtaking. Our pilot Dedra was great and knowledgeable. Walking on the glacier was totally something well worth it. Take a water bottle to taste the glacier water.

Dierdre, our pilot, was chill and confident. She's a great tour guide. The glaciers, massive. Pretty scary walking around without a guide though. It's absolutely amazing walking on the ice, the world's freshest drinking water, and awe inspiring scenery. Well worth the trip!!
