Overview



Looking for a little physical activity? How about a two-hour trek on a glacier!

It's a shame that people who come to Juneau never get to see the Juneau ice fields. They're magnificent. From horizon to horizon, you'll experience hundreds of glaciers filling the valleys of hundreds of mountain peaks.

Your tour begins with a transfer to the Juneau airfield and your waiting helicopter. Before taking off, we'll fit you with the proper gear and give you a safety briefing. This tour includes approximately 30 minutes total (in both directions) of flightseeing, to enable you to take in the beauty of several of the nearby glaciers. Which glaciers you see will depend on the weather, but most times you'll see the Mendenhall, Herbert, and/or Lemon Glaciers, while the Taku, Norris, Bottle, and Thiel Glaciers are some of the others you might get to view.

Once on the glacier, you'll be taught the proper use of mountaineering gear. You'll be trekking over remote glacier routes, so we'll make sure that you understand the glacier features and hazards. This trek will not be a piece of cake. At times it will be extensive and physically demanding. You may experience steep terrain. It will last about two hours. If you're the athletic type, you're going to have a blast.

- All gear (jacket, pants, boots, gloves) is provided.
- Please wear layers of clothing and socks that fit over your ankles.
- We suggest that you bring sunglasses and a camera!

- The minimum age for this tour is 12.
- The maximum number of passengers per helicopter is 6.
- You must be comfortable walking 2 miles over uneven terrain.
