Description

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

With two glacier landings and your pilots as your guide, this tour is a one-of-a-kind, personalized experience. After arriving at the heliport, you'll receive a safety briefing and receive some of the gear needed to wear as you venture out onto the glaciers. You and your pilot will choose two different landings among the 36 named glaciers stretched across 1,500 square miles of the Juneau Icefield. Glaciers such as Herbert, Taku, Norris, Gilkey, Hole in the Wall or Mendenhall are a few of the possibilities. For an up-close opportunity to appreciate this ancient landscape, your pilot will land in two different locations, where you will continue the tour on foot. Once on the ice, your pilot will escort you on an informative, relaxing walk along the glacier's surface while describing the magnificent area that surrounds you. Photos taken and memories made, you'll reboard the aircraft and return to port.

Special Notes:

Weight surcharge ($200) may apply on this flight. Due to weight and balance limitations, as well as passenger safety and comfort, the helicopter companies have advised that guests weighing 250 lbs. or more (fully clothed) will be assessed the weight surcharge to reserve adequate space onboard the helicopter. Guests weighing 250 lbs. or more should reserve an extra surcharge ticket and, once onboard, go to the Tour Office to have the ticket charge adjusted down to the surcharge amount. Refer to the FAQ section for important information about flightseeing.

Children under the age of 2 can travel as a lap child at no charge; however, the weight of the child will be added to the weight of the parent on whose lap they will be sitting. Carry-on bags are not allowed and there is limited secure storage at the heliport. iPads, iPad minis, tablets, drones and Go-Pro Sticks or other extendable items are not permitted on tour. Aircraft fly no higher than 7,000 feet. Oxygen for personal use is allowed but must be in the form of an FAA approved portable oxygen concentrator that can be secured to the user's body.

Helicopter excursions are not refundable unless cancelled by 12:00pm on the day after embarkation.

Provided: Glacier overboots

Unaccompanied Minor Policy: Children 12 and under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Children 13 to 17 must have a signed parental consent form to participate without a parent or guardian.
