Undoubtedly the most sought after Juneau flightseeing option, the Icefield Excursion is our recommendation for those looking to see Alaska from a bird's eye view but not necessarily interested in dogsledding options. Of Skagway, Juneau and Ketchikan, Juneau is arguably the best destination for flightseeing as it has the largest concentration of glaciers in the immediate area. From take-off at the base, you'll quickly gain elevation on your way up to Herbert Glacier. Your skilled pilot-guide narrates the journey, and as you approach your destination, you realize that you're actually going to land on this remote icefield! Hang on as the pilot sets down right on the ice and powers the helicopter down to give you the opportunity to explore this rugged, glaciated terrain. Literally miles away from any crowds, take a deep breath because this is why many come to Alaska in the first place.

An experience that tops many travelers' lists, the Helicopter & Dogsled Glacier Excursion is one of Juneau's top-rated shore excursions, and with good reason! Guests load up for a thrilling helicopter ride that in itself provides jaw-dropping views and endless glaciated scenery. But the helicopter ride is just the first leg of this trip; the pilot-guide makes a remote landing on Herbert Glacier where excited dog teams are waiting to take you on a sled ride! An unforgettable ride with Alaskan huskies is set amongst a surreal backdrop of ice-capped peaks. This is one of our favorite Juneau shore excursions!

This popular Juneau shore excursion combines an incredible helicopter flight up to Herbert Glacier with a uniquely Alaskan dogsled ride with husky dog teams - but then takes it one step further. Since you've already made it this far, this particular tour maximizes your helicopter flightseeing opportunity by flying to a remote icefield on Herbert Glacier, giving guests the chance to get out and experience the rugged glaciated terrain up close. The Helicopter Dogsledding with Extra Landing is really the ultimate combination tour, and if you only have one chance to go flightseeing while in Alaska, then this tour is going to be the one you want. For a bit more cost, it takes all of the elements from various flightseeing options and bundles them into one comprehensive outing.

Explore Mendenhall Glacier from a much closer perspective on the Mendenhall Glacier Trek Tour. This full-day adventure is not for everyone, but geared towards those looking for a challenge and ready to hike to get there. Gaining elevation from the trailhead, temperate rainforest eventually gives way to alpine terrain, where you'll need micro-spikes for glacier traversing. Spend the next hour or so on the glacier, following your guide past deep blue melt streams, emerald pools and deep crevasses. The scale of these flowing glaciers becomes evident as you zig-zag along in what may feel like a different world. A truly awe-inspiring trip for those ready for it.

If you're looking for whale watching opportunities during your Alaskan cruise, Juneau is the place! The Whale Watching Tour doesn't disappoint and puts you up close and personal with all sorts of Alaskan wildlife, of course with humpback whales being the focus of this half-day Juneau shore excursion. Leaving the waters of Auke Bay on the passenger boat, captain and crew will point out playful seals, bald eagles and sea lions while cruising out to deeper waters. When whales do come into range, outdoor viewing decks provide ample space for everyone to observe and get some amazing photographs. The captain will shut off the engines, setting the tone while we anxiously await breaching humpbacks and playful orcas.

Join real Alaskan husky sled teams for a ride on the Juneau Sled Dog Discovery. This tour actually puts you in the seat of a custom, wheeled dog cart being pulled by a team of 14-16 Alaskan huskies. Professional mushers, who race with these same teams in the winter, provide a glimpse into Alaska's state sport with you on board! Join them and their teams for a 1-mile ride through Tongass National Rainforest on beautiful Douglas Island. After the ride, you'll be treated to a informative presentation with a knowledgeable dog handler and a retired sled dog. Together they showcase what it takes to run the arduous winter races such as the Iditarod, by exploring the equipment, nutrition and care required for a husky team. And after the presentation, you'll have time to spend and interact with the adorable husky puppies!
