Helicopter Flightseeing & Extended Glacier Trek Adventure

Extended Alaskan Glacier Trek! Four Hours on the Glacier! Guide, Gear, and light lunch provided! Adventurous and Challenging yet No Experience Required! Juneau Icefield!

If you are looking for a unique Alaskan adventure that will challenge and inspire you, this extended glacier trek is it! Your professional mountaineering guide will spend four hours with you, hiking and climbing the remote areas of the glacier. You will see and experience more pristine terrain than any other available day tour. This is my favorite challenging trip.

Embark on your journey from the heliport in a modern turbine helicopter. The helicopter windows allow extraordinary visibility for viewing unrivaled scenic terrain while soaring over the glaciers, horns and ridges of Juneau’s 1500 square-mile Icefield. See majestic mountain peaks, glacier icefalls, crevasses, moraines, valleys, seracs, glacial lakes and more. The blue of the glacial lakes is unsurpassed.

Glacier Trekking

The helicopter touches down and your glacier experience begins. Spend four hours on the ice with a professional glacier guide teaching you basic and intermediate mountaineering skills and the proper use of your equipment, including ice axes. Your guide will lead you on a hike that is both adventurous and challenging, enabling you to safely climb and descend ice walls in the most remote areas of the glacier. You will discover remarkable glacier features as you get deeper into the glacier’s magical landscape.

Bring your spirit of adventure! No experience required, but good physical condition, stamina, and agility to walk over uneven surfaces intermittently for 4 hours. Lunch is provided, with a view that will astound you. You will be outfitted with top quality mountaineering gear for your adventure. Outerwear, (jackets, shell pants, and gloves) hard-shell mountaineering boots, harness with carabineer, ice axe and crampons will prepare you to safely and comfortably hike into areas of the glaciers not normally accessible.
