Travel back to the Ice Age on this excursion that was featured on Good Morning America as Juneau's top-rated excursion.
Board a modern, turbine-powered helicopter to enjoy breathtaking vistas of thriving rain forests, alpine ridges, and mountain peaks.
Your destination is the world-famous Mendenhall Glacier. The flight path takes you over the glacier itself, giving you an eagle's-eye view of its icy spires, deep blue crevasses and meltwater pools. Descending towards the landing site, you may fly past the Mendenhall Towers -- rock sentinels that soar to more than 7,000 feet. A gentle landing brings you to your close encounter with the ice itself.
Hop out onto the ice to explore the glacier's surface with an experienced, knowledgeable guide -- a wonderful opportunity to take once-in-a-lifetime photos. Bring your binoculars -- you never know when you'll have a chance to see some of Alaska's famous wildlife.
