Cruise by the 5-mile terminus of Taku Glacier

Enjoy a thrilling trio of iconic Alaskan activities—heli-flightseeing, airboating, and a glacier landing—all in a compact 3 hours. You’ll also take in some amazing views on this unforgettable excursion out of Juneau with NorthStar Helicopters.

A View From Above

Lift off in a helicopter from their private heliport and soar high above the Alaskan coastal mountains over a jaw-droppingly scenic route. Cast your eyes over the massive Juneau Icefield and the gorgeous Tongass National Forest on your way to Taku Point, keeping an eye out for wildlife and calving glaciers along the way.

Glacier Views Up Close

Then it’s time for some airboating! Spend an hour aboard a spacious, covered boat with open sides. Speed down the river and get up-close views of the stunning Taku Glacier as you cruise its 5-mile terminus. Your captain will provide information how this massive ice field carved the river basin and make stops along the way to capture dramatic photos.

More thrills awaits as you climb back in the helicopter for a quick flight up to the Juneau Icefield for a brief glacier landing with your professional pilot/guide. Step across the ancient ice in your provided glacier overboots and explore the majestic features of this ever-evolving winter wonderland.

Then relax and enjoy the helicopter flight back to the base after this action-packed adventure!
