How to Prepare


NorthStar Helicopters will do our best to ensure that you have a safe and enjoyable time during your helicopter glacier tour. 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 excursion.

For the most comfortable tour experience, we recommend that guests:

  • Dress for a 10-15°F temperature decrease from sea level (at the cruise ship docks) to the glacier.
  • Wear long socks, sturdy, closed-toe footwear, and warm layers. Additionally, you may want to bring gloves and a hat.
  • Bring a pair of sunglasses, a camera, and a thirst for adventure!

Additionally, backpacks and purses cannot be accommodated on this tour. We offer secure storage options so you can pick up items upon your return.
