Helicopter Glacier Walkabout

Quick Details

Your Walk of a Lifetime

Our Helicopter Glacier Walkabout provides a full hour on the glacier to explore, take pictures, and appreciate the magnificent views that surround you. The adventure begins with a short drive to our helicopter base, located next to the Juneau International Airport. We will outfit you in state-of-the-art trekking equipment and give you a safety briefing before you board one of our A-Star helicopters.

Once loaded and ready, it’s time to take off on a Juneau helicopter tour! Experience Juneau’s impressive range of ecosystems while soaring over dramatic mountain ranges, the old-growth trees of the Tongass National Forest, and expansive flows of ice that change from white to vibrant shades of blue, before landing at our base camp on the Mendenhall Glacier. Flight routes depend on the day’s conditions and are up to the pilots.

After carefully unloading, you will meet your guide, who will outfit you with crampons to make it easier to walk on the icy terrain, and a trekking pole for enhanced stability. Once prepared, your guide will lead you on an interpretive Juneau glacier trek to explore the unique features and learn about the local environment.

There will be plenty of time to stop and take pictures of your great adventure before your helicopter returns for your flight back to our heliport. At the end of your tour, our comfortable vans will escort you back to your drop-off point.
