Your trip begins with a tranfer to the Juneau airfield and your waiting helicopter. Before taking off, we'll fit you with the proper gear and give you a safety briefing. This tour includes approximately 30 minutes total (in each direction) of flightseeing, to enable you to take in the beauty of several of the nearby glaciers. Which glaciers you see will depend on the weather, but most times you'll see the Mendenhall, Herbert, and/or Lemon Glaciers, while the Taku, Norris, Bottle, and Thiel Glaciers are some of the others you might get to view.

Once on the glacier, you'll be taught the proper use of mountaineering gear. You'll be trekking over remote and pristine glacier routes, so we'll make sure that you understand the glacier features and hazards.

This trek will be hard, but very rewarding. At times it will be extensive and physically demanding. You may experience steep terrain. It should last about four hours. We'll introduce you to basic climbing and rope techniques so that you can safely climb and descend ice walls. Sound like fun? If you're the athletic type, you're going to have a blast.

Mid-way through the trek, your guide will serve you an Alaskan snack.

Shore Excursions

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
