Embark on an exhilarating Alaskan adventure that combines flightseeing, glacier hiking, and packrafting, all in one day! This 5-hour tour is the first of its kind in Juneau and promises to be an unforgettable experience.
Your journey begins by boarding a six-passenger floatplane and taking off from the water, soaring towards Norris Glacier. As you fly over the Taku Inlet and Juneau icefields, keep your eyes peeled for mountain goats, black bears, and moose. Once you reach your destination, a lake fed by the Norris Glacier, you'll hike through terrain sculpted by glaciers until you reach a cove where your single-person packraft awaits. Knowledgeable and able guides will provide a brief lesson on paddling techniques before you set off into the water.
As you paddle through the tranquil waters, marvel at the stunning views of the Alaskan wilderness that surrounds you. Glide past icebergs and around the glacier until you reach its base. There, your guides will assist you in getting out of your packraft and into microspikes for the exhilarating hike onto the glacier.
Explore the unique landscape of the glacier on foot, taking in breathtaking views of Norris and Taku glaciers. With each season bringing new glacier features, you never know what you might encounter - from crevasses to glacier pools and more. After completing this once-in-a-lifetime experience on the glacier, paddle back to shore and prepare to return to Juneau on your floatplane.
