  • Land on Herbert Glacier for an intimate walking tour
  • Benefit from the personalized attention of your small-group guide
  • Enjoy hassle-free round-trip transfer from your cruise terminal one hour before listed time.
What to expect
  • Enjoy convenient pickup from Juneau port’s cruise terminal or meet at a central location, and listen to informative commentary from your driver en route to the heliport.

Gain insight into Alaska’s natural history and meteorology from your pilot-guide. Then, your pilot navigates to Herbert Glacier depending on weather conditions. Touch down right onto the glacier surface. Leave the helicopter and do something few people get to do—take a guided walkabout on a glacier nestled high in the mountains, covered with snow and ice.

Aug 2021 • Friends
Just WOW! From the moment Cassey picked us up in the van to the moment that Deirdre landed us in the helicopter it was a life-changing and amazing experience! Worth every penny! Landing on a glacier and experiencing that environment can’t be explained in words. Highly recommend this trip!

Not ADA compliant as advertised
Feb 2020
We would have loved to have taken this tour of a lifetime and were very excited to see there was a company advertising ADA compliance. That changed when I tried to book the tour. First the tour company said service dogs were not allowed per FAA, then the company emailed that "unfortunately they didn't allow service dogs on any of their tours". After pointing out that the web site states they are ADA the response was that they understood the web site was misleading and would work at correcting. It is our company policy that all seats are considered exit row seats and we operate in an open cockpit with exposed controls. Our helicopters stay running during loading and unloading; we have no way to predict how animals will react in and around active helicopters.

The problem with this response is that it took so long to get a response that they obviously had to write the policy first. No handicapped person is allowed to sit in an exit row. (they allow persons that used wheelchairs and a lift to sit in those same rows). Trained service dogs have to be under control in all noise situations and they have every right to remove them if they are not. If a company is going to say they are ADA complaint they can not choose to comply with only the parts of the law.

We appreciate feedback and TripAdvisor reviews, thank you for taking the time. We were very accommodating to your concerns and made the necessary and suggested changes on our website. There were a few notes that were untrue in the review: 1. The FAA was never mentioned, this is a company policy and I was very clear on that. 2. You also stated that it took a long time to respond and you stated it was because we were changing our policy. Not correct. Your email was sent Feb 11th @ 3:59am (Alaska Time) and I responded on Feb 12th @ 1:58pm (Alaska Time). We accommodate wheelchair guests utilizing our ADA lift. These guests are seated behind the pilot who have control over the exit door. We have made changes on our website and are not advertising ADA complaint. We changed our verbiage to accommodate ADA lift assistance only. We also provide information regarding service animals on our FAQ page.

Highly recommend this helicopter tour. We didn't get a lot of time on the glacier but the pilot made up for it with drive bys to other glaziers.

Great tour
Sep 2019
We had a great time. The pilot was great and narrated the flight to and from Herbert glacier. Much cheaper than than the same tour through the cruise line. No worries about returning back to the cruise ship on time.

Out of the world experience !!
Jul 2019
This is an experience I will always remember for a lifetime. Flying above the glaciers then landing on the glaciers and drinking glacial water. The pilot was very nice and offered to take pictures. Don't forget your camera. You will be able to capture such beautiful pictures. It's a must do for anyone visiting Juneau.

This is a must do in Juneau
Aug 2019
To be honest, I was not expecting much. I was blown away though. Our Help pilot, Casey, was excellent. He took care of us and his flying was professional and smooth. We landed on a glacier and he stayed there with us and let us look around. We got to taste glacier water, which was AMAZING, and view the wonderful scenery. This will be a must do again. Thank you Coastal for a great time.
