“Take this Tour!”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

This was our favorite activity of a 15-day adventure in Alaska and Canada. The views of the mountains and glaciers from the seaplane were outstanding, sufficiently magnificent to justify the price alone. But then we landed in this beautiful setting, just across from a huge glacier, and were ushered into a cozy little lodge, complete with moosehead over the fireplace. The grill was full of fresh salmon steaks, and soon we sat down to a wonderful meal of salmon, freshly-baked bread, and other goodies. The meal was outstanding, also worth the price of admission alone. As we ate, we watched a bear enjoying the salmon drippings left on the grill outside the window. Then we took a brief walk through the woods, where we saw several more bears, and soaked up the ambience of the forest and a waterfall. Whatever else you do in Juneau, take this tour! You will want to time your tour to eat (about an hour after leaving Vancouver) when you have a good appetite.

“5 Star Service and 5 Star Feel- Must Do”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

Great company, great excursion, and wonderful way to spend a 1/2 day in Juneau. The Folks at Wings/Taku Lodge are wonderful!

Clean planes, great trip over the Glaciers and into the Lodge, where the staff of 6, have drinks, stories, and smoked Salmon feast for you and you guests!

The food is Superior, and the service top notch, take the waterfall walk, and get the 3 Labs to play catch in the creek with you!

If you are going to Juneau, this is a MUST Do, total Reco.

“Amazing experience”
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.
