We took the helicopter tour to Herbert Glacier-what a thrill! We were outfitted with ice boots and walked around the ice observing the beautiful ice blue water trickling down from the glacier top. The pilot was knowledgable and friendly. This is a "MUST DO" activity while visiting Juneau.

On our recent Alaskan cruise we took a helicopter tour through Coastal Helicopters that landed on a snow field on Herbert Glacier as well as further forward on the glacier where we got to walk around and explore the blue ice and crevices. On the upper glacier, on the snow field, we were taken on a 2 mile dog sled... More

We Cruised to Alaska and that is a whole other review. This Glacier and the helicopter that we went out on was all together a classic experience. Sean our pilot was young and enthusiastic. His knowledge of the areas and his original life growing up there were truly unique to this experience. We put down gently and had over 40... More

I really wanted to land on a glacier and so you can imagine my disappointment when the cruise ship cancelled by excursion because of weather. Fortunately, Coastal Helicopters came to the rescue. They flew us to Herbert Glacier and we landed on it. This was my favorite glacier we visited. This glacier is huge! It had everything to see on... More

One of my favorite places in Alaska!!! My brother and I usually take a day when I am in Juneau to hike the trail that leads to this glacier. The trail is easy to walk, with only a few areas where there are small cliffs and narrow spots. The forest is beautiful and much of the trail follows the silty... More

Coastal Helicopters landed on this glacier for their tour. It is spectacular. The deep blue crevasses are other-worldly. The glacier itself is massive, and the views out over the sea are just breathtaking.

We went on a helicopter - pilots choice - and flew over three glaciers stopping at two for a walk. The pilot was great, took time to tell us about the glaciers, how they flow and alter the landscape as well as encouraging us to walk on the glacier, features and what to watch out for. Was a great experience... More
