Amazing! Walking on a Glacier with your family = Dream come true....

Incredible views, knowledgable pilot, standing on a glacier and drinking the purest water you've ever had. We flew over several other glaciers that we would not have been able to... read more

Incredible views, knowledgable pilot, standing on a glacier and drinking the purest water you've ever had. We flew over several other glaciers that we would not have been able to see otherwise and it was just magical. Tip for anyone going to the top of a glacier bring an empty bottle with you and you can fill it with glacier... More

Was nervous flying on a helicopter for the first time! The fog was very dense coming in to Juneau in the morning but thankfully lifted before our scheduled time so we had beautiful, clear views of the Taku, Lemon and other smaller glaciers. Landing/walking on the Taku Glacier and seeing the deep ice crevices was really an experience! Rubber booties... More

Very clean, professional outfit. We chose them because they offered a trip to the Taku Glacier. The helicopter pilots were great and did a great job of showing us the beauty of the mountains and glaciers.

The Heli-Mush and Era Helicopters teams were extraordinary in every way. Stunning view of pristine glaciers. An otherworldly descent onto the Juneau Ice Field and a 200-dog strong camp. Expert piloting by Jiri and mushing by Sara. My 7 year old son was head-over-heels in love with the experience, and so was I. Would be really hard to top this.... More

The helicopter ride was awesome but if only you could have a longer time at the glaciers but still I had the best time ever!

I have to say this tour is expensive but it is worth it!!! The ground crew was very nice, our pilot Yuri was excellent and our musher Sarah was so sweet and just simply an incredibly amazing person. This girl has a love for her dogs like no one I've ever met. Both me and my son felt a really... More

We did the helicopter glacier landing tour August 2015. It by far exceeded my expectations! Katie, our pilot just made our trip the best ever. They have a lift that will lift someone who is unable to stand right up onto the helicopter. The views leading up to the glacier landing are phenomenal! She took time to point out so... More

Amazing experience. Breathtaking views. Pilot was excellent, as were all the employees. The dogsledding was a really fun, unique experience. The highlight was the helicopter though - incredible views of the glaciers and mountains all around. Best excursion we've taken in 25 years. It's expensive but worth every penny.

What a fun, professional, and personable group of people working here! The ground crew made the informational set up so fun and hilarious (and informative!). They provided us with boots for walking around on the slushy glacier (rather than our sneakers which would have gotten soaked!). I felt very safe while being strapped into the helicopter. Jiri, our pilot, immediately... More
