Truly a unique experience! Flying over the glaciers and then landing on one was one of those unforgettable moments. The beauty and tranquility are very special. The pilot was informative and entertaining. Luckily we were the last flight of the day so we had an extra 15 minutes. A must do despite the cost - but only if the weather's... More

We had so much fun and would do it again in a heart beat! Fantastic helicopter ride. To see all the glaciers and scenery from above is worth the ride. In addition you get to see the dogs and ride on a sled! The whole excursion was fantastically organized.

While on our Alaskan Cruise we had the opportunity to go dog sledding on a glacier with Era Flightseeing Tours out of Juneau Alaska. It was an unforgetable experience, and well worth the cost. Era were very professional, with friendly and helpful staff. The weather when we were there in May was overcast and raining for the entire thing, so... More

This was an awesome excursion. I felt safe in the hands of the pilot Mike. The landing on the glacier was flawless, and he took us to the perfect spot to see all sorts of crevasses with running water in them.

Just returned from a 12 day land/cruise in Alaska. Had great time but the Juneau Glacier/ dog sled tour was by far the highlight! Never flew in a helicopter so a little nervous but once up it was so fantastic could have flown for hours. Views were unbelievable. Spent an hour on the Glacier getting hands on mushing opportunity. The... More

We read the reviews and decided to invest in this excursion. We were on a Disney cruise and signed up through Disney for the extended helimush. It really is unbelievable. Short ride to the helipad-see video-weigh in-put boots on over your sneakers and go to your assigned chopper. Jordan was our pilot. Very professional and confident. The view of the... More

August 18, 2014. The weather was cloudy with rain showers encountered going to and from the glacier. The weather made for a more dramatic and beautiful flight experience. The staff was fabulous taking care of our every need expeditiously. The experience riding the dog sled on the glacier was tremendous and getting to greet and pet the dogs was very... More

Went with my family, husband, kids 11 & 14 and parents 70+. We all had an outstanding time. From the helicopter ride to the mushing it was all incredible. The day started badly, we were set for a trip at 8:15 but were told the weather would not cooperate. Luckily, Era had room to book us on a later tour... More

This was the highlight of our Alaskan cruise and experience. We loved taking the helicopter flight; the area and glaciers below were beautiful! We also loved the dog sledding camp. It is a bit pricey, but definitely worth the money. We were lucky because due to weather, flights had been canceled for 3-4 days. The dogs were super excited when... More
