Taking a relatively safe punt on favourable weather conditions in summer, the catalyst for my whole vacation was a 'bucket list' item to go dog sledding on a glacier - something that is impossible in Australia. I booked directly with the great team at Temsco, again on another punt that my cruise ship would arrive on time. Maaaan, I'm still... More

We booked the helicopter tour through Princess. Awesome blue skies and great experience. Landing on the glacier was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. We did sit in the front with the pilot and enjoyed having front-row seats; however, be aware that the seats in the front are very tiny and are really about a seat and a half, but the camera options...

This is one thing that you must experience. The staff were excellent and our pilot was professional and knowledgeable about the glaciers. Our flight was cancelled due to the weather but we rebooked for the next day and off we went. My wife was very nervous before we took off but then the smile grew on her face and could... More

Booked the Pilots Choice Tour through Royal Caribbean. George, our pilot, was fantastic. He Shared a wealth of knowledge about the ice field and glaciers and was completely safe and professional. Landing on the ice field was surreal...360 degree view of the mountains , snow capped peaks and blue sky, a truly breathtaking experience that made me feel blessed to... More

we did the pilot's choice tour which was fantastic, it was myself, my wife, and a woman and her mother. It was amazing, the weather was perfect so we were able to go deep into the ice field and stop on two glaciers. We felt like we were the only people in the whole world. It's an amazing way to...

We booked the Pilot's Choice Ice Age Exploration excursion thru Princess Cruises...(cost $50 extra per person..go to Temsco website...I should have known better). Anyway this tour was totally awesome! We had front row seats in the helicopter. The view was spectacular!!! We just wished we had been given more time to take photos during the 2 glaciers walk segments.

We booked this Mendenhall Glacier helicopter transportation to the glacier and a short guided tour. Amazing experience to take a short helicopter ride, experience the glacier and drink from its channels of melted water. Very unique.

We booked the Helicopter and Dogsled Tour through our Princess Cruise. At $550 a person, it's a serious investment and a big chunk of our vacation budget. We scheduled the earliest possible departure, so that if weather were a factor, we might be able to rebook for a later time. We had amazing weather but heard they had a 50%... More

We booked through our cruise. It was definitely an expensive excursion but worth every penny. I would do it again without a hesitation. Our excursion started with a helicopter ride to Mendenhall Glacier and a dog sled ride on the glacier. The views from the helicopter was amazing. When John, our pilot, went over the top of the mountain and... More

Loved your helicopter tour, pilot explained all the surroundings so well, the guides at the glaciers did a good job. We enjoyed it a lot; my kids are still asking how much I paid for it. Hey, but they don't need to worry about money when they are with their parents; right?
