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

I could wax lyrical here but forgot about the seemingly hefty price tag for a day trip and just go! Where else will you experience, a seaplane flight over mountains and glaciers, a landing on a beautiful lake with stunning surroundings, a fabulous meal cooked on an open barbecue, stand metres away from wild bears and take photos to your...

Do you want to sit in the co-pilot's seat? Before your group boards your well-maintained DeHaviland Otter, your friendly pilot will gather your group and as: " Who here doesn't have a camera?" Stick your i-phone in your pocket, raise your hand and enjoy a phenomenal view flying over the glaciers. When you reach the lodge, you'll have a chance... More

We were hesitant to spend $300 each for a 90 minute float plane flight over the Juneau Ice Field to the Taku Lodge, but are so glad we did!! The flight was amazing seeing the massive glacier field from the sky and the beauty of the mountains and rivers. Worth every penny! The landing on the Taku River at the... More

On our trip to Alaska, we had multiple people tell us to take the Taku Glacier Lodge Flight & Feast. We did and we were certainly not disappointed. Now we happened to be in Juneau on an absolutely beautiful day which of course enhanced the trip. The flight was wonderful and the feast was even better. We were on a... More

It was an amazing view from the seaplane to fly over the glaciers. Something to see from each side of the aircraft. The lodge has a great view of the glacier & our lunch feast was amazing! The hosts are gracious and full of valuable information.

What a wonderful way to see the glaciers from a float plane piloted by excellent pilots, organized by a very personable group of employees! We rate this our number one shore excursion on our Alaska trip. The lodge and surrounding area is beautiful, the food fresh, good & generous amounts.Absolutely worth the trip to Taku!!

The float plane ride out to the Taku Lodge was one of the most beautiful scenic experiences of my life - and I'm an Alaskan! Truly stunning! The staff at Wings and Taku Lodge were amazing - super friendly and knowledgeable. Loved the King Salmon lunch and watching the black bear roam the front lawn. We had a perfectly sunny... More
