Exclusive to Juneau, the Taku Glacier Adventure by Air, Water & Ice combines a scenic helicopter flight over the Juneau icefield with an adventurous airboat ride right up to Taku Glacier! Take off in the helicopter, quickly changing zones from temperate rainforest to the next layer of ice-capped peaks. Flying over to the Juneau Icefield, you'll be soaring over expansive glaciers, deep crevasses and some of the most beautiful terrain found anywhere. Landing at the Taku tour base, trade the helicopter for an airboat, and speed along the Taku River as your guide will navigate right up to the face of Taku Glacier. An exclusive, small-group tour that just may be the highlight of your whole Alaska vacation!

This highly-rated Juneau helicopter tour begins with a pick-up at the cruise docks and a short ride over to the heli-base. Meet your pilot-guide and go over a brief safety orientation before lifting off for an unforgettable ride. Nervous excitement during take-off is quickly overwhelmed by the majestic views of the expansive glaciated icefields, snow-capped mountain peaks and a seemingly endless horizon of mountains. Your knowledgeable and skilled pilot-guide narrates the journey and soon enough, you'll arrive at the Taku base; and this tour is just beginning!

Take a deep breath as you've just arrived to a remote wilderness in the heart of the Taku watershed. You'll be fitted with full-body mustang exposure suits before boarding a customized airboat to continue the journey up the Taku River towards the ultimate destination: the face of the Taku Glacier. Your guide has 20+ years of experience in this exact area, and the insightful narration is a welcoming backdrop to compliment views you may never forget. For those looking for a unique and extra special adventure, this excursion packs it all into one! Don't delay reserving your spot! This tour (like most Juneau helicopter tours) has very limited availability!
