We took on this little excursion while on port on a cruise aboard the Royal Caribbean Radiance of the Seas. We made it a family adventure and with teenagers to the grandparents involved. We walked from the cruise terminal to the facility and could have made it a quicker walk if we had turned left sooner. Unfortunately the cruise staff... More

We fly by helicopter after putting on special spiked boots, life vest, gloves and hats if we wanted them. Landed on a glacier and had a 45 minute tour of this most beautiful glacier. Great pilot and the group on the glacier giving the tour were fabulous. We did this in July 2015 while on the cruise ship Celebrity Millennium.... More

Did a dog sled tour in the glacier and booked directly with Temsco. BEST TOUR EVER. This was the best thing about my trip to Alaska. The whole tour is about 2.5 hours. They will provide snow boots that you wear without removing your shoes. The dogs are adorable, and as sweet as can be. Loves to eat snow too!... More

Very good service. We arrived early and the staff was very pleasant offered us hot chocolate, tea, coffee - rest rooms were very clean. Good safety video. Staff was very good in assisting us putting on our snow shoes, and jackets and escorting and seating us in the helicopter. Helicopter pilots were friendly and showed us the views. Landing on...

We were scheduled for a glacier and dog sled tour. The dog sled tour was cancelled due to bad weather but they were able to fit us in on another tour to just the glacier and refunded us the difference. The whole staff was very polite and the time on the glacier was sufficient and very informative. Overall a great... More

First time on helicopter and on a glacier and Temsco was great in handling both. Cody, our pilot, was awesome as was Adam and his crew on the glacier. So glad we did this unforgettable excursion. Thanks to all the workers on the ground - their warm welcome and patience helped ease the anxiety.

We flew from Skagway to Denver Glacier by helicopter and then were taken by snow cat up to the dog camp on the glacier. Our pilot Heather was wonderful! We got to see the dogs, a little of how the camp operates, and then were taken on a sled dog ride. Afterwards we got to hold puppies and even take... More

Our trip was cancelled due to weather, and they put us on another tour and refunded the difference. It was handled very well, which also describes the service. I felt well guided through the entire experience.

Great experience and super nice people at Temsco. We were booked on another excursion that was cancelled due to weather and they were very helpful setting this up! Wonderful trip to explore the glacier and appreciate the huge expanse it covers!

This was totally awesome. Flying to the glacier was a great experience with spectacular views. Once on the glacier, the guide is very informative and takes every precaution to keep you safe. The view you get from being on the glacier is very unique. Drinking the water flowing out of the glacier melt was the purest and Coldest I've ever... More
