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

Made it happen! One of the best experiences ever. To fly over the ice and then land on the glacier was amazing. Sun came out on way back to airfield and views incredible.

Took a helicopter up to herbert glacier. The views were breathtaking! We landed on the glacier and got to walk around for about 45 minutes taking pictures of flowing water, crevasses, and all the different ice formations. Watch the weather as overly cloudy days will make for obscured views and most trips are cancelled when rain is excessive. Prepare for... More

My husband I and just returned from Juneau and decided to do Herbert Glacier Trail. It was a walk we will never forget. 5 miles both ways into the dense forest. Once you think you are at the end...keep going. The view across from the glacier is one to remember. Take comfy shoes, lots of water...maybe a weapon...and go for... More
