After transferring 30 minutes from your Juneau cruise pier downtown to the Mendenhall Valley heliport, you will weigh / check in with the flightseeing excursion staff before boarding your excursion helicopter. Seating will be based on the total weight of the shore excursion guests, (including clothes, shoes and jacket), the helicopter can hold up to six guests. Then it is time to take off. Your experienced helicopter shore excursion pilot will lift off giving you views back towards Juneau and across the Mendenhall Valley.
In no time at all, you are over the enormous ice formations, looking down at deep blue crevasses and glistening ice rivers while turning your head back and forth for the once in a lifetime views on either side.
Your helicopter sightseeing cruise excursion pilot will fly over the spectacular rock formations and icefalls of the Juneau Icefield as you head toward the Herbert, Taku, Lemon or Norris Glacier. Depending on weather conditions, your skilled pilot will choose the best glacier to touch down on, so you can do a little ice exploration.
Upon reaching your destination, your expert helicopter excursion pilot shuts down the helicopter and becomes your knowledgeable guide. They will escort you on an informative, relaxing walk across the glacier, giving you some details on your natural surrounding and deep history of these immaculate ice formations. The snowshoes provided will give you an authentic Alaskan experience on the river of ice.
After approximately 20 minutes on the face of the glacier, you will climb aboard the helicopter and head back to the heliport taking in this incredible landscape from above..
The helicopter flightseeing excursion portion lasts approximately one hour from the time it lifts off until it returns to the heliport, but will vary depending on which glacier your pilot determines to be the best on the day of your Juneau helicopter sightseeing excursion, based on weather and glacier conditions. The rest of the excursion duration consists of your transfers to/from the heliport and preflight check in.
