The grandeur of Alaska's epic glaciers will thrill and delight you on Juneau's only five-glacier flightseeing tour. Seeing glaciers from the air is an Alaskan must-do, and doing so by authentic Alaskan seaplane (also known as a floatplane) is the quintessential Alaskan experience. One of Alaska's most important modes of transportation is the seaplane, allowing you to escape into the true Alaskan wilderness within minutes of leaving the ship.
Your seaplane exploration begins as your aircraft gently takes off from the historical downtown Juneau waterfront, carrying you over the remnants of Juneau's mining past.
You will soar over the lush wilderness of the Tongass National Forest to catch your first glimpse of five distinctly different, absolutely majestic glaciers making up a section of the 1,500-square-mile Juneau Ice Field. 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 Ice Field, the Taku Glacier is the largest.
