The “Pilot’s Choice” tour is an incomparable journey of discovery, a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Take our “PILOT’S CHOICE” Glacier Explorer Tour, for a second-to-none journey to see the best Alaska has to offer.
Your pilot will give you an eagle’s eye view of high alpine lakes, “icefalls” hanging from sheer cliffs and some of the most remote peaks and glaciers in the Juneau Icefield -- places like Wonderland, Glacier King, the Mendenhall Towers, and Devil’s Paw. The itinerary is flexible; your pilot is free to create the best possible tour under the current weather and glacier conditions.
For an up-close opportunity to appreciate this ancient landscape, your pilot will land in two different locations, where you will continue the tour on foot! During these two landings you will learn about the geological and environmental processes at work creating moraines, crevasses, seracs, and the glaciers themselves.
The “Pilot’s Choice” tour is an incomparable journey of discovery, a once-in-a-lifetime experience sure to provide enduring memories of Southeast Alaska’s beautiful wilderness.
Duration: Tour includes approximately 50 minutes of flight time and two separate landing locations for approximately 30 minutes combined time on the glacier, for a total tour duration of 80 minutes. Please allow up to 45 minutes for transportation from dock departure to dock return and safety briefing. Approximately 30 minutes of the 80-minute tour will be spent on the National Forest System Lands.
