It is an incredible experience. You feel like you are on the moon. The ice crevices are really interesting and the ice fields go on for ever. We took a helicopter tour and this was the glacier it landed on.

Glaciers are a great part of Nature's Beauty & Alaska has its share. The Herbert Glacier is one such place. If in this area, please don't miss viewing it !

This trail is really well kept and a gorgeous rainforest walk. There will be Mosquitos though so bring bug juice.

The Herbert Glacier trail is one of the easiest to explore in Juneau! The trail is well maintained and relatively flat. It's a great walking or mountain biking trail through thick old growth forest, as you get closer to the glacier you can see a drastic change in the forest age!

Once you get right alongside the river you have a great view of the glacier, you can continue on alongside the river, as long as the water level isn't too high, to get a closer look. This point of the trail becomes more rigorous involving climbing up rock faces. The trail is clearly marked with red tape.

It is really an outstanding sight and I recommend everyone see it while in Juneau!

Going back in the glacier was a wonderful experience. Amazing topography and photography options. Glacier footwear was provided. Don't forget sunglasses and rain gear.

We booked through our cruise line, but it also possible to book directly with the helicopter company.
