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. This tour offers a journey of discovery, a once-in-a-lifetime experience, that will provide memories of Southeast Alaska's beautiful wilderness.
