Get as close as possible to the most remote areas of the Juneau Icefield. View peaks, sheer cliffs with hanging icefalls and glaciers not normally seen. For even closer adventuring, the pilot lands so you can explore on foot.

Pilot's Choice Glacier Exploration

New Lower Pricing for 2014

Soaring high above the lush rain forest, incredibly deep valleys and awe inspiring peaks, you'll marvel at vistas seen by few! Your pilot will give you an eagle's eye view of high alpine lakes, "icefalls" hanging from sheer cliffs and some of the most remote peaks and glaciers in the Juneau Icefield. You'll see places like Wonderland, Glacier King, the Mendenhall Towers, and Devil's Paw. The itinerary is flexible and your pilot is free to create the best possible tour under the current weather and glacier conditions.


For an up-close opportunity to appreciate this ancient landscape, your pilot will land in two different locations, where you'll continue the tour on foot! During these two landings you'll also learn about the geological and environmental processes at work creating moraines, crevasses, seracs, and the glaciers themselves. The "Pilot's Choice" tour is an incomparable journey of discovery, a once-in-a-lifetime experience sure to provide memories of Southeast Alaska's beautiful wilderness.


Note: This tour is 2 3/4 hours in length which includes approximately 50 minutes helicopter time and 2 separate landings (each landing approximately 15 minutes). The remaining time is for transportation to and from the dock, a safety briefing, outfitting of glacier boots and aircraft assignment. All times are approximate and due to security, no bags are allowed on the flight. This tour operates under a special use permit issued by the U.S. Forest Service. Guests 250 lbs. and over are charged an additional rate to reserve two seats for safety and comfort. These spaces are capacity controlled. You will not be able to book this option online. Please call 1.866.625.1167 for assistance with these reservations. This tour is non-refundable once booked. Reduced 2014 pricing is reflected on NCL.com
