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!

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!

We have done helicopter glacier walkabouts, and Florida airboat rides, so were intrigued with the thought of what would this combination be like. Well, it exceeded all expectations. The helicopter ride over the forest and glaciers was awesome! Then we loaded onto the airboat for a very cool ride on a shallow river to have a closeup view of the glaciers. On the return flight, we landed on a glacier for a short walkabout. Then returned to the airport while overflying glaciers with such wonderful views. Our airboat captain is to be singled out as outstanding in giving us the great views with detailed explanations of the area. We will do this again if back in Juneau.

Dear Traveler, Thank you for the great review! The combination of the helicopter and airboat makes it possible to view the Taku Glacier from all possible angles. From the air, from the water, and actually standing on top of the ice. We're so happy that it exceeded all expectations for you! Thanks again,
