We took the helicopter tour to the glaciers and it was amazing. I would highly recommend this adventure ! there were four couples and it was one of the highlights of our trip. It is very expensive, but we felt very worthwhile and a great experience. They distribute you between helicopters according to your weight, so two of our couples had to go on two different choppers, but we all ended up together and took lots of pictures !! We went on Coastal Helicopters and it was a great experience. Sunny warm day in Juneau, but when you get to the glaciers, it's COLD ! Dress warm, bring gloves and bring your cameras !!!

Sorry couldn't help notice Ruth M's review and ridiculous flag statement. Trust me the breath of fresh air you will experience occurs as soon as you step foot from an exhilarating helicopter flight. Myself and my wife did several excursions during our Alaska cruise which we thoroughly enjoyed however this stood out as a never to be forgotten experience. Left it too late to travel independently so had to book directly with cruise ship but for the scenery and atmosphere not to mention the actual dog sledding was worth every cent. The guides and pilot etc are so friendly and every one is provided with special boots to cover your footwear before take off.

Without a doubt, this was the most exciting Activity that I did during my two weeks in Alaska!
Landing the helicopter on the glacier, then riding a sled pulled by retired & young Iditarod dogs was absolutely amazing!
Though it was expensive, it was
worth every penny!

Most beautiful snow white scenery I've ever experience. Able to interact with the glacier folks and also the dogs. It snowed the whole time we dog sled. The US Flag was a breath of fresh air in the middle of all this whiteness

This was so memorable on our honeymoon last July that my profile photo is me standing on the glacier with my Bahamian flag. Pilot said it was the hottest he had ever known it up there, ice was melting under our boots - took our weather with us, as Jimmy Buffett says in his song!! Friends went on same cruise following week and the weather socked in, missed out on excursion of a life time. Pick up, organisation, flight, pilot friendliness and knowledge could not have been better. Awesome adventure!
