About This Excursion

Your pilot will give you an eagle’s eye view of high alpine lakes, “icefalls” hanging from sheer cliffs and some of the most remote peaks and glaciers in the Juneau Icefield — places like Wonderland, Glacier King, the Mendenhall Towers, and Devil’s Paw. The itinerary is flexible; your pilot is free to create the best possible tour under the current weather and glacier conditions. Total flight time is a full 50 minutes!

For an up-close opportunity to appreciate this ancient landscape, your pilot will land in two different locations, where you will continue the tour on foot! A total of 30 minutes exploration time between the two glaciers is included. During these two landings you will learn about the geological and environmental processes at work creating moraines, crevasses, seracs, and the glaciers themselves.

The “Pilot’s Choice” tour is an incomparable journey of discovery, a once-in-a-lifetime experience sure to provide enduring memories of Southeast Alaska’s beautiful wilderness.

For passengers weighing over 250lbs (fully clothed), a $100 surcharge is required.
