Excursion Description

Travel back into the ice age with Alaska's original glacier helicopter touring company! 

On this amazing excursion you will board a modern 5-6 passenger turbine helicopter for a voyage to the world famous Mendenhall Glacier! Arrive at the heliport to be fitted into a pair of glacier boots and presented with a safety briefing by our attendants.

Soar over wetland habitat, alpine ridges, and thriving rain forests to the awe-inspiring glacier. Cruise effortlessly above twisted ice spires and deep blue crevasses that dominate the glacier.

Gaining altitude, you may pass the Mendenhall Towers - rock sentinels that escalate 3,000 feet above the glaciers. Gently land on this moving river of ice and take in the breathtaking scenery, while experiencing Alaska's outdoor serenity.

Continue on your flight as it showcases the opportunity for you to marvel at Suicide Icefalls, Nugget Spires, and several hanging glaciers that seem to flow off the Juneau Ice Field.

Gently land on this moving river of ice and watch as your helicopter is whisked away to leave you alone to experience Alaska's outdoor serenity. Your guide will show you rocky moraines and moulins while you gain knowledge of how the glacier's form, flow, and shape the surrounding landscape.

Once your pilot returns, lift off and view for the last time the unforgettable sight of the Mendenhall Glacier as you soar back into civilization. Watch for possible sightings of Alaska's wildlife: goats, eagles, wolves, and bears.

Note: Flight time approximately 30 minutes; glacier time 20-25 minutes.

Due to weight, balance and capacity restrictions, guests weighing over 250 lbs. will be required to purchase 2 seats (1½ tickets) on this excursion.  You may acquire the second ½ ticket/seat by contacting: shoreexcursions@carnival.com, with your booking #, after making your initial online purchase.
