This trip was fantastic! Our pilot/guide was knowledgable, experienced and awesome. The glacier was spectacular. Highly recommend this to everyone. The rest of the staff were also very friendly and helpful.

Just got back from our Era helicopter tour and glacier walk, it was amazing! From our pickup in the hotel lobby and throughout the flight the staff made the adventure. You could go with lots of companies but it is the staff that makes or breaks an adventure, you guys went above and beyond. Our pilot Mike was knowledgeable and... More

Our helicopter tour excursion to the higher elevated Mendenhall glacier was canceled because of low clouds. We were so disappointed. We happened upon this company's booth and signed up for their tour of lower elevated glaciers and boy it couldn't have worked out better! Felt safe the whole way and loved it. The most amazing thing ever!!! YOU MUST DO... More

We did this excursion on 19th June. Of our 4 week trip to Alaska and Canada, doing the helicopter ride to the glacier and dog sledding was the only thing that I really wanted to do so booked it through our cruise ship as soon as it was available. I was concerned that we may get rained off as had... More

beautiful views on flight- glacier awesome too! Dog sled- fun and unique, but not enough time for one of five to "drive" the sled, so disappointing AND didn't feel like 15 minutes as you have to stop quite a bit to let the dogs cool down- met some of the dogs but felt rushed out of that to go wait...

Remember the opportunity cost, when will you be able to walk on a glacier and drink glacier water directly. It was the most beautiful trip. The blue ice was amazing, and rivers of water as it was flowing off the glacier were indescribable as one must see it with their own eyes. We were fortunate and had one of the... More
