ShoreTrips says...

The grandeur of Alaska’s epic glaciers will thrill and delight you on Juneau’s only 5 glacier flightseeing tour. Seeing glaciers from the air is an Alaskan MUST DO, and doing so by authentic Alaskan bush plane is the quintessential Alaskan experience!

Your seaplane exploration begins as your aircraft gently takes off from the historic downtown waterfront and carries you over Juneau’s mining past.

Soar over the lush wilderness of the Tongass National Forest enroute to your first glimpse of five distinctly different majestic glaciers that make up the 1,500-square-mile Juneau Icefield. Glide over the deep crevasses and azure blue meltwater pools of the Norris, Hole-In-The-Wall, East and West Twin Glaciers, plus the famous five mile wide Taku Glacier.

Of the 36 named glaciers comprising the Juneau Icefield, the Taku Glacier is the only glacier that is actually advancing, not retreating (and one of only a few in the world!). Make sure to bring your camera to capture the magical memories this trip is sure to provide.

  • This tour includes:
  • Approximately 40 minutes of flightseeing
  • Awesome scenery and photo opportunities
  • Full narration throughout
  • All window seats!
  • Water take off and landing from Historic Downtown Waterfront
  • Views of the largest glacier in the Juneau Icefield
