Tour Information


How to Prepare:

NorthStar Helicopters will do our best to ensure you have a safe and comfortable time during your helicopter and glacier experience. In doing so, we provide comfortable transportation to and from our base, briefings to teach you important safety protocol, and the proper equipment needed for your tour.

Here are some ways you can prepare for the most comfortable tour experience:

  • Dress for a 10-15°F temperature decrease from sea level (at the cruise ship docks) to the glacier.
  • We recommend wearing long socks, sturdy, closed-toe footwear, and warm layers. Additionally, you may want to bring gloves and a hat.
  • Backpacks and purses cannot be accommodated on this tour. We offer secure storage options so you can pick up items upon your return.
  • Be sure to bring your sunglasses, a camera, and a thirst for adventure!
