No words can describe the Awesomeness we experienced! At first I thought the helicopter 🚁 ride was incredible but no…wait … there’s more! The airboat ride with Brian was more than I could ever imagine! Somehow we were blessed to be the only ones! I sat on top and enjoyed it all. Up close and personal to all the beauty. Glacier, waterfalls, seals - Incredible! Last stop. Helicopter back, stopped to land on the Glacier and walk on the moon! Thank you Brian for sharing your big piece of paradise and your love and knowledge for Alaska and the Taku Glacier. Definitely worth it! And something we will never forget! ❤️

We had an outstanding adventure with our sixteen year old son. He loved every minute as did we. We flew over the Juneau ice field - breathtaking! We saw mountain goats and bald eagles. We landed at our base on the Taku River. Brian, our river guide, met us and warmly welcomed us. He took us on a super fun airboat ride on the Taku River. Our son rode beside him with a grin on his face the whole time. Brian is an excellent airboat captain and super personable! We came right up to the side of the glacier. We saw seals and chunks of calves ice. So beautiful! We got lots of awesome pictures. Couldn’t have gone better!

This was the BEST tour we did in Alaska by far. Helicopter to a dock and then land and get on an airboat-travela round Taku Glacier up close--see bald eagles up close. Then back to the helicopter and LAND on the glacier and walk around and drink glacier blue water. WOW!!! Fly back over rainforest and more glaciers. Fabulous.

Dear Traveler, Louis, Brian and Adam are definitely a fantastic team. Airboat Alaska and Northstar Helicopters work hard to employ captains and pilots that love the incredible Alaskan sights, and love showing them off to guests in a safe, fun and informative way. We're so glad that we could help to make your birthday very special! Alaska has a way of blowing people away with its beauty, and we're glad that you got to see it on a sunny day!

Beautiful and dramatic views of ice, nature. It feels as if you are almost on a different planet. The helicopter ride, and boat ride were worth every penny. Louis and Brian were great!!

Dear Traveler, We agree that the experience of visiting the Juneau Icefield is out of this world. We think that the best way to truly appreciate this natural wonder, is to see it from all angles: Air, water, and standing on the ice itself. The combination of looking up at its enormity from the water, then standing on the top of it is meant to take your breath away, just as it does ours every time! Thanks for taking the time to explore it with us!
