My 3 kids (ages 11 and 13) and I went on the excursion to view and land on a glacier. The ride was smooth, the pilot confident and pleasant. We were all surprised at what the glacier actually felt and looked like - as well as the interesting facts about glaciers. The pilot only talked when we were "coasting" -... More

Wow. Unreal. the whole trip excellently organized. Era helicopters were great and our pilot Wayne was awesome. The Mushers and camp were great people. We did the extended tour which I highly recommend so you can really spend time with the team of dogs get out on the glacier for an extended time. My favorite dog was Newman. he had... More

This was the highlight of the holiday. Our pilot was great and got us there and back safely. The dog sledding was informative & amazing. The dogs were so well cared for even when retired. Would love to go again

Thorough and organised tour company. We were picked up from our ship and put through safety video and gear up with efficiency. Obvious pre-planning occurred to get all of us split into helicopter groups. Absolutely spectacular helicopter flight up and out of Juneau and above the glacier. The experience was then topped off by the dog sledding and meeting each... More

We visited on June 19. Josh was our pilot. The views were amazing, the ride was comfortable, and dog sledding was a blast!

Era did a great job making those that had never flown in a helicopter feel very safe. The views were amazing, and it was such a fun and smooth ride...I might have liked it better than the dog sledding! The dog sledding was a very fun experience! They had two sleds hooked together, and 2 or 3 could fit on... More

used this helicopter service to go to do dog sledding on a glacier and they were great. The whole service were great from sorting out boots for us to wear on the glacier(and even helping me get them on) to assisting us off and on the helicopter and the pilot was very informative about the areas that we were flying...

We had a great day on the glacier -- the clear weather was apparently rare and helped make it a magical trip. We had a great short bus ride from the ship terminal to ERA helicopter. The staff was very helpful and attentive. The best part was our pilot/guide -- Scott -- he was very experienced and explained everything along... More

Booked this excursion through Carnival Cruise Line. $549 per person, but worth it. Amazing views of the glaciers from the helicopter ride, and then dropped off to ride the dogsleds. The huskies are eager to work, and we all had the opportunity to drive the sleds. The guides were all great at their jobs, and knowledgeable. They provided boots to... More

Treated my dad for this tour while on an Alaska cruise. As if flying in a helicopter and seeing the sights over the mountains wasn't great enough, but then landing on a glacier in a dog sled training camp? it just left you speechless! With the extended tour we were able to harness all our dogs, feed them after the... More
