Era helicopter landing on a glacier was the highlight of our Alaskan vacation. We loved every breathtaking minute and our pilot was so professional. This was by far our favorite excursion by a long shot. Nothing can ever compare to this.

We took off in less than 30 minutes to a spectacular ride! Our pilot had a great personality, was very informative and easy to talk with. An asset to Era,... More

This is one of those experiences that you remember forever, and Era did a great job of making it as memorable as possible! The pickup by the Era van very near the ship went smoothly, the safety briefing was brief, we were geared up and in our helicopter within 30 minutes. The ride to the glacier was incredible! The pilot... More

We flew over four glaciers in Juneau and walked on Taku. It was the most amazing experience of my life. The pilot was fantastic and afforded all of in the helicopter the most incredible vistas that took your breath away. While walking on the glacier the pilot made sure all of us were guided carefully across the ice. This excursion... More

My husband has mobility issues and uses a wheelchair. We were thrilled to find that Era helicopters can accommodate wheelchair users as they have a lift that slides up a track and transfers a person from their wheelchair into the helicopter. The trip to the Taku glacier was magic and when we landed on the ice the experience was out... More

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.
