Helicopter Glacier Trekking, Alaska

Helicopter Glacier Trekking is the most exciting way to explore the scenic wonders of the glaciers flowing from the Juneau Icefield.

Begin with a 25 minute scenic flight over mountain peaks and glacier features, such as icefalls and crevasses. You will land on one of the glaciers located within the 1500 square-mile Juneau Icefield and meet your professional glacier guide who will teach you basic mountaineering skills (no experience necessary) and the proper use of your equipment.

You will be outfitted with top quality mountaineering gear for your adventure, such as outerwear (jackets, shell pants, and gloves), hard-shell mountaineering boots, harness, ice axe, and crampons. Your guides will lead you on a personalized hike that is both adventurous and easy, into areas of the glaciers not normally visited. After your tour, a short 10 minute flight returns you to Juneau.
