Glacier Tours in Alaska

The most well-loved part of Alaska’s landscape has to be its glaciers. These behemoth icefields - tinged a vibrant blue in parts - are inextricably linked to this part of North America, and seeing them up close on one of our Alaska glacier tours will make for some of your fondest vacation memories. 

Whether you prefer to see glaciers from the sky, feel them underfoot on a glacier trek, or glide past them through icy waters in a kayak is completely up to you. Each of our Alaska glacier tours offers a unique view of these majestic, yet delicate, giants.

For a classic glacier and helicopter experience, consider joining the Denali Glacier Landing tour. This small-group trip includes an unforgettable 50-minutes of flying time over the area’s best scenery, hovering over Yanert Glacier and taking in sweeping views of the tundra. You’ll also enjoy a glacier walk, exploring the brightly-colored ice along with dramatic circular ice shafts called moulins. 

For a one-time-only helicopter experience, why not try the Fly-In Glacier Hike and Packraft tour, an exhilarating 3-part adventure departing from Juneau. Your flightseeing element comes in the form of a floatplane, which flies over the Juneau Icefield towards Norris Glacier, catching sight of all manner of wildlife along the way. Landing on a glacial lake, you’ll take an invigorating hike through the exceptional landscape, followed by packrafting through Alaska’s frigid waters right up to a glacier that you’ll then trek across. Unforgettable memories are guaranteed on this fast-paced and active expedition.
