This was one of the highlights of our trip!! This company is awesome and everything went perfectly. Our pilot was wonderful!!!! The scenery flying to the glacier was incredible and getting out and walking on the actual glacier was just spectacular!! Yes, it is expensive, but if you have made the trip up there, you just can't pass this up!!!... More

Very professional operation that makes safety a priority. It is expensive. It isn't a very long tour. I wasn't really interested in going but my best friend (travel partner) really wanted to. I am so glad I went! The views from the helicopter are magnificent, and standing on the glacier is kind of surreal. It's difficult to explain, you kind... More

After the helicopter ride with our Cruise excursion was cancelled we were referred by a local agent to ERA. Our glacier landing was 1st class and my kids thought it was the thrill of a lifetime. I wish the trip was a little longer or that it would land on two spots but the weather was turning and our pilot... More

My husband and I took a helicopter to Taku Glacier and landed there. It was an unusually bright blue day and the trip was magical. Our pilot, Michael, looked 17, but was in fact a ripe old age of 22 - it was a little unnerving not to see anyone there, other than our shuttle driver, that looked over 25!!... More

We spent a couple of days waiting and hoping for Juneau's notoriously rainy weather to clear up sufficiently for us to take a helicopter tour of the glaciers. On our first day one of the helicopter companies (not Era) cancelled on us at the last minute and we were down to the last few hours of our final day when... More

This was the most professionally and well run excursion that we made on our trip. Our Pilot, Jen, was a terrific guide and pilot. Landing on the glacier and getting out to walk it as she walked with us was the highlight of the trip for me. She was extremely patient with us and gave us ample time to walk... More

Visited Taku glacier, where we landed and walked around in our special booties provided by Era. Spent about 30 minutes on the glacier. The pilot landed at a spot where a region of the glacier had melted, creating a dark blue river in which ice cracks in the walls created a pattern worthy of modern art. Had a drink of... More

We kept the flight tour and was very happy we did. It was an incredible experience. Flying over the glacier and landing on it was breathtaking and and incredible experience. This was one of... More
