With dock-to-dock transportation included, a short ride from your cruise ship takes you over to the helicopter base where you meet with your pilot-guide and go over brief safety instructions. This is the first helicopter flight for many guests, so nerves at this point are completely normal! It doesn't take long for the nerves to dissipate after take-off though, because the endless horizon of ice-capped mountain ranges and flowing rivers of ice below are beyond captivating. But this trip is more than just a journey in the skies, because you're actually on your way up to the destination on a remote glacier.
The pilot-guide will choose the ultimate destination to maximize the experience and actually lands the helicopter on a remote icefield miles from the heli-base. If you were looking to get away from the crowds, well, you've succeeded! Your knowledgeable pilot-guide continues to narrate and describe this geologically inspiring area which is characterized by frozen ice flows, deep crevasses and iconic deep blue glacial ice. If you're looking for a flightseeing option during your Alaskan cruise, definitely choose Juneau and we highly recommend the Icefield Excursion.
