Go with Wings Airways and you’ll take off from Juneau in a 10-passenger DeHavilland Otter floatplane and get a lush view of the city as well as the surrounding mountains and ice fields. Opt for a 40-minute flight seeing tour, or book the “Flight and Feast Tour,” which takes you to dine at a 1920’s lodge.
Go for a gorgeous helicopter flightseeing trip. From Juneau, you’ll fly over remote Alaskan tundra and witness ice fields, alpine lakes, and even “ice falls” that all make up the area’s unique landscape. You’ll even have the opportunity to land and more closely explore this terrain from the ground. Or leave from the fishing village of Petersburg to experience the imposing and inspiring Stikine Icefield as well as the vast Patterson Glacier, North America’s southernmost active tidewater glacier. And from Skagway, fly over glacier-filled valleys for an unforgettable adventure.
Northstar Trekking operates out of Juneau and caters to all styles of exploration. The curious glacier observer can simply fly to the glacier and snap photographs from flat or rolling terrain. You can also choose to hike on the glacier itself. If you’re very adventurous, you can even learn how to climb on the ice walls. No matter which option you choose, NorthStar Trekking will guide you all the way, making sure you get the most out of this unique opportunity.
