Juneau Shore Excursion: Helicopter Tour and Guided Icefield Walk
From US$299.00
When your ship anchors in Juneau port, get ready for a 2.5-hour shore excursion pumped with adventure and incredible views. First, soar by helicopter over Juneau Icefield, and then land on Herbert Glacier to explore the remote landscape by foot. Learn about the surrounding Alaskan wilderness and capture memorable shots during your icefield walk. Round-trip port transport included.
What to Expect
Enjoy convenient pickup from Juneau port’s cruise terminal, and listen to informative commentary from your driver en route to the heliport. After a safety briefing, board your helicopter for a ride into Alaskan landscapes difficult to reach by vehicle.

Soak up unforgettable views as you fly over icefalls and rock formations. Gain insight into Alaska’s natural history and meteorology from your pilot-guide.

Then, your pilot navigates to Herbert Glacier depending on weather conditions. Touch down right onto the glacier surface. Leave the helicopter and do something few people get to do — take a guided walkabout on a glacier nestled high in the mountains, covered with snow and ice. Your pilot-guide points out notable landmarks and explains the local geology.

Take your final picture of your stellar surroundings and step back aboard the helicopter. Enjoy the bird’s-eye perspective during your return flight to Juneau. Your 2.5-hour Juneau shore excursion ends with van transport back to the cruise terminal.

Worry-free Shore Excursion:
We will ensure your timely return to the Juneau port for this activity. In the rare event your ship has departed, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of- call. If your ship is delayed and you are unable to attend this activity, your money will be refunded. See our terms and conditions for full details.

Wish I made it.

I was picked up by bus and driven to the helicopter building. We viewed a video of what to expect on the tour. We were given a safety briefing, selected our “ice boots”, and were sitting down putting them on. Just then an announcement was...More

You should definitely book ahead of time. Also you can call coastal helicopters to see about cancellation due to weather.

The seating is based on weight balance. However there is not one bad seat on the helicopter. I was seated in the middle back row and had a great view out the front and side. The only difference with the front row is that... More
