This was one of the highlights of our Alaska trip. We arrived at the dock and our tour was divided into three groups. We were ushered to our waiting float plane, after a short talk we boarded and took our seats. Everyone has a window and head phones. We taxied out on the water and had a very smooth take... More

Best excursion we've taken in Alaska. Flights are fantastic. It is so beautiful to see mountains and glaciers from above. Great lunch. Nice hiking trails. This year we even saw a bear come up to the outside pit where the salmon is cooked. We saw bear tracks when we took a short walk after lunch. Love this trip.

This was an awesome experience! The flight provided amazing views of glaciers. The folks at the Taku Lodge are all helpful and courteous. I loved hearing the history of the lodge. The guided tour of a short trail was very informative. The food is amazing! This is a MUST DO experience!

Seaplanes are a primary mode of travel in the wilderness portions of Alaska. This trip starts at the seaplane terminal in Juneau, which is right next to the pier where the cruise ships dock. You fly on an authentic DeHaviland Otter seaplane about 50 miiles into the interior to the Taku Glacier Lodge. The views from the plane are incredible... More

Fantastic experience while in Juneau! We cruised to Juneau and Wings Airways was right near the dock. They divide you up into groups of about 8-10 for each floatplane and you get on this little floatplane and take off. What an incredible experience! It is about a 35 minute flight to the Taku Lodge and you fly over different glaciers.... More

Enjoyed the view at this wonderful "lodge". We spent the afternoon after a bumpy sea plane ride. You could see the glaciers in the distance dwafing the trees and everything else in site. The baked Salmon was very good. I wasn't able to eat it there as I was suffering from air sickness, but had some later. Nice little gift... More

What a great experience! To fly over the five glaciers and celebrate with a great salmon bake at the Taku Glacier Lodge was a unique and never to be forgotten experience! Great trip, great food and a very friendly team.

The views absolutely took my breath away! I only wished we could have stayed there all day long! It was the BEST meal we had while on our entire cruise! The environment was so cozy and the staff amazing! I took so many photos and VIDEO clips from the plane and on our hike i don't know what to do... More

This was a fantastic trip by plane giving some amazing views of the glaciers. This rustic lodge is a sight in itself. The barbequed salmon and meal was very well done, there was no shortage of food. The staff are very friendly. We were close to an hour in the air and our pilot Mark was great.

Last June my husband and I took a Royal Caribbean cruise through the inside passage in Alaska. During our day in Juneau we decided to take the Wings Airways float plane tour. We had an incredible narrated flight over 5 glaciers. We then landed at Taku Lodge for a Salmon bake. We were greeted by a Mama Bear hanging around... More
