Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Your adventure begins the moment you leave the Juneau waterfront on a 40-minute floatplane journey you will never forget. Flying through the Juneau Valley, you will soar over cascading waterfalls and lush rainforest, en route to the awe-inspiring glaciers of the Juneau Icefield. Gaze in wonder at the deep blue hue of the receding and advancing glaciers that make up the 1,500 square miles of solid ice. This once-in-a-lifetime flight will take you over the deep crevasses and azure meltwater pools of the Norris, Taku, Hole-in-the-Wall, East and West Twin glaciers. Everyone will enjoy a window seat on this exciting narrated flight, so bring your camera to capture all the magical memories. And keep a lookout for possible wildlife such as goats and eagles, before concluding this magnificent excursion with a smooth water landing.
