Description

On this adventure, you will have the unique and compelling opportunity to see the exquisite beauty of Southeast Alaska from the air, the Taku River, and the Taku Glacier, with a landing on the glacier itself!

First, you’ll take off on your amazing helicopter flight with spectacular views of the nations’s largest national forest, ice capped mountains, hanging glaciers, and deep crevasses, en route to the tour base situated on the Taku River.

Upon arrival, you will board an airboat for your experience of a lifetime. You will enjoy an energetic Taku River excursion that will provide you the opportunity for an up close and personal look at some of the most gorgeous and inaccessible country in the world, taking in panoramic views of the largest glacier of the Juneau Icefield and cascading mountains. Your experienced and knowledgeable river boat captain will regale you with insightful historical information that will enhance your adventure and your understanding of the region.

Afterwards, you will reboard the helicopter and fly to your landing site on the Taku Glacier. Your pilot will escort you on a walkabout of the glacier, where key glacial features like crevasses, moulins, blue ice, and ice falls are present. The combined experience of seeing the glacier from the air and water and finally, walking on it and feeling the glacier beneath your boots, will surely be a cherished memory of your time in Alaska.

The actual tour is approximately 2 hours from lift off at the heliport to return to the helicopter base. Additional time is estimated for transportation to and from the heliport.

Such a great day! Our two guides (whose names sadly escape me at this moment ) were so kind, knowledgeable , and engaging that they really made our tour a highlight of the trip.
