“Amazing experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2014

We purchased this excursion through the cruise ship and are so thankful we did. It was one of the highlights or our trip to Juneau. The pilot was super nice and very experienced. We wore headphones that played a recorded audio description of what we were seeing and sometimes the pilot would interrupt to show us something that wasn't on the audio recording. The sight of the glaciers from an aerial view was just spectacular and seems so surreal. Would highly recommend this excursion to anyone never seeing the glaciers quite like this before. We also had time when we returned from our flight to catch a bus to the Mendenhall glacier and Nuggett Falls before returning to our ship.

“Taku Glacier Lodge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2014

The best experience I had while in Alaska. The floatplane was amazing, we had the best view of
several glaciers in the Juneau Icefield. Landing in the Taku river was wonderful, seeing the Lodge in the distance rustic and beautiful. The food we had was excellent, the salmon we ate from the outside grill was outstanding, a lot of food. We would not have seen Alaska in it's
awesome splender as we did on this great tour. I would highly recommend the Taku Glacier Lodge Flight & Feast to everyone. When we go back we will definitely do it again
outstanding.

“This should be number one experience in Alaska”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2014

just recalled that I had not reviewed my experience at Taku during a cruise to Alaska. This adventure probably ranks up at the top of a very long list of fun/stunning/valued adventures my family and I have had. the views from the floatplane over some of the glaciers and areas of Alaska you just can't access any other way will have you snapping 1000 pictures. The Lodge, the history, the setting the salmon feast - totally worth anyone's time you might have in Alaska. My big complaint? ONce you have this salmon, no other salmon will taste the same and you will wonder how to get back there!

“Flight & Feast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2014

Excellent adventure into Alaska's outback, and to a historic frontier destination: Taky Glacier Lodge. The tour flew us over five glaciers in the Juneau Icefield. From the plane window, there were amazing views of glacier crevasses and blue melt-water pools. Landing in the Taku River is also an experience, and seeing how far-out in the frontier this lodge was built... Wow! Lunch was also great: king salmon, salad, bread, beans and ginger cookies. Drinks are also served with glacier ice. There is opportunity for a short hike after lunch, and black bears may even come to join in the fun.
