Description

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

Your magnificent three-and-a-half-hour journey begins when you leave the Juneau waterfront in a DeHavilland Otter floatplane, flying over lush rainforest and five breathtaking glaciers. Everyone has a window seat on this thrilling 40-minute narrated flight that uses the Taku River as its "runway" to deliver you safely to the charming Taku Glacier Lodge. Here, you will savor an all-you-can-eat feast of wild Alaska salmon complemented with homemade side dishes and glacier ice. Be entertained by stories of the lodge's colorful past, while absorbing the rustic charm of your surroundings, decorated with dog sleds, trapping gear and furs. After your feast, linger in the gift shop, explore the forest trails on a guided walk or relax beside a crackling fire. This beautiful location is untouched by time, so take advantage of our child rate and treat the entire family to this unique adventure.
