Do not pass up this opportunity. Four of us joined Wings Airways to get away from the typical cruise ship crowds and were treated to the best time of our Alaskan visit. The short plane ride to the lodge was a great way to see the glaciers around Juneau, AK. Upon arriving at the Taku Lodge we were greeted by... More

Well worth the time and money. Beautiful close up views of the wilderness and especially the Glaciers. Great pilot!

The flight up to Taku Lodge was amazing!! We just could not open our eyes wide enough to take in all there was to see. The Lodge provided a wonderful lunch of local salmon grilled to perfection. Plenty of time was provided for walking around the property. How many times do you get to eat while looking straight at a... More

My husband and I love flying as he is a small aircraft pilot. We chose this excursion because of the float plane and remote lodge. It exceeded our expectations and we had a great time.

Such a friendly and informative staff! Warm fire place roaring giving warmth throughout the whole dining room. The meal was top notch and the place was so clean and tidy.

I think much of what I could say has been said before. I was quite dubious about going on a float plane as I don't like flying, but the trip over the glaciers made up for it. The views were fantastic. Taku Lodge was great fun. A beautiful place, good food and the biggest black bear I have seen ever... More

First don't confuse with Wings of Alaska, seen elsewhere on tripadvisor with poor ratings. We arrived at the end of a cruise in Juneau and I was nervous about flying in a single engine aircraft, and nervous about getting airsick on a fairly windy drizzly day with moderate low clouds. They addressed my concerns. The pilots were on their way... More

I'd like to think I've done some cool things: helicopter ride in Cambodia, hiking in Prague, scuba in Indonesia - you name it. But NOTHING I have done compares to this experience. I got to ride in the cockpit of the seaplane and felt like I was literally surrounded by the ice fields and glaciers. The colors were breathtaking and... More

We took a float plane right from the Wharf and had the most amazing views of the glaciers. Very safe, our plane held about 10 people with a recorded tour that was supplemented by the pilot. The tour is only about 45 minutes but you go over all the glaciers. The views are incredible! Also, met the owner and she... More
