Description

One to the main reasons to visit Alaska is the spectacular scenery that exists out of reach of it's main cities, unless you look to the skies. The mountains and glaciers between Juneau and Skagway are an awesome sight and literally untouched by man.

You will board your helicopter with boots, safety vests and raingear (if necessary) after a short safety briefing. First you head over to the famous gold-mining town of the past, Dyea. It is here that the Chilkoot Trail begins and you will be able to follow it's path from above.

The scenery of mountains covered with snow and the valleys in between are more than you imagine. Your helicopter will land on or at the base of a glacier and you will be met by your guide, who will take you on a 40-minute introduction and exploration of this craggy mass of ice.

This is a true Alaskan adventure that you will take home with you.

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.
