Accessible Glacier Helicopter Tour in Juneau
This incredible Glacier Helicopter tour in Juneau is one for the memory books! Experience the spectacular rock formations and icefalls of the Juneau Icefield as you enjoy interesting narration by your pilot-guide.
Your driver will pick you up in a standard car at your cruise ship and escort you to the heliport, where you will use a mechanical lift to transfer into the helicopter seat before heading out on your memorable, panoramic Glacier tour. If you require an accessible vehicle, we can arrange that for you, but we cannot pre-pay this service for you and as such, you will need to pay the driver on the spot. After enjoying the panoramic views of the breathtaking glaciers from above, your pilot will land and shut down the helicopter for some time to soak in the beauty on the Glacier. He will also be sharing fascinating facts and information about the area with you. Our helicopter pilot-guides are put through rigorous preseason training to insure a smooth and safe ride. Staff will also be available to help load and unload your wheelchair.
You will spend approximately 1 hour from take off until returning to the heliport. An additional 1.5 hour will be included for transportation, unloading etc.
