We had an excellent flight over the glaciers over. Super smooth pilot. The Lodge is fantastic and the food was extraordinarily good. Must be the open fire and the hand made goodies out of the oven fresh. One of the servers, Robert, gave an oral history of the Lodge and the owners and it was amazing all the history and the life of the first owners. We took a guided nature walk to the falls and into an old growth forest behind the Lodge which was also amazing. We live here in Juneau and this was our first time going out and chose a beautiful day and we fortunate to be able to be fitted in. It will NOT be our only time to go out to the Lodge you can be sure. THANK YOU to all involved!! It was a beautiful and memorable day. So well worth it!! HIGHLY recommended!!

I really didn't know what to expect on this trip and it went way beyond all our expeditions. The flight is simply breathtaking, especially flying over the glaciers. The lodge is beautiful and in such a an amazing location. We had low expections for the food but it was so good we ended up having seconds. We also went on the short guided nature walk. An absolutely must do trip.

Amazing scenic glacier tour, seeing 5 spectacular glaciers from the air and the Taku glacier from the Taku lodge. The beautiful illuminated blue and the topography of the glacier tops was far more than what was expected. Dan was our pilot and his friendly and funny interactions with the passengers was only eclipsed by his skill in landing the float-plane on the water, like a feather! Once at the lodge, you will be treated to a short easy hike around the property with excellent viewing of the Taku glacier (maybe bears) and a very interesting history of the property. The salmon feast served at the lodge is amazing - even if like me, you are not a big fish eater! If you go early in the day, you will also be treated to reindeer sausage that is sooo delicious. Don't miss this tour when in Juneau! Bring your camera with plenty of battery/film/storage, etc. to accommodate the many amazing pics you will be taking from the air and ground!

This is a FANTASTIC adventure. We lucked out with BEAUTIFUL weather on our flight day. The aircraft are comfortable and clean. The windows are VERY clean for excellent viewing and photography. DO NOT MISS THIS if you are in Juneau and the weather is nice. The flight is about 1 hour.

Regarding below: Bar, Restaurant, restrooms are very near the Wings Airways office and loading area.
