Description

Your Taku Lodge Feast and 5 Glacier Discovery begins just steps from the cruise docks! Your tour begins when your float plane takes off from the waters near the heart of downtown Juneau. Throughout your fully narrated and educational flight, you’ll pass over Juneau’s old mines, forested valleys, and soaring peaks to finally reach the Juneau Icefield. Once here, you’ll explore some of the icefields most notable southern off-shoots. These include the Norris, Hole-in-the-Wall, East Tower, West Tower, and Taku Glaciers. As you’ll learn along the way, the Taku Glacier is the only glacier on the Juneau Icefield that is actively advancing, making it a special marvel to behold. And you'll also get a stunning view of this behemoth from the lodge!
