What we'll do
This 6-hour VIP adventure combines the two best ways to see Juneau - by air AND by the sea!
You’ll be chauffeured via Mercedes Sprinter and delivered to the TEMSCO helicopter base for your VIP Helicopter Experience. Buckle up, because this is no ordinary helicopter tour! Climb aboard your aircraft, featuring a sleek custom painted exterior and corporate leather interior for your nearly hour-long flight with TWO landings.
Your pilot will choose two different glacier landings among the 36 named glaciers stretched across 1,500 square miles of the Juneau Icefield; a few landing possibilities include the Herbert, Taku, Norris, Gilkey, Hole in the Wall, or the famous Mendenhall Glacier. Moments after departing the Heli-base, you will enjoy a breathtaking view only seen by a few. Your flight takes you over ice spires, deep blue crevasses, and meltwater pools. With approximately 50 minutes of helicopter time, you will have plenty of opportunities to take in views of steep alpine ridges, lush rainforest, and the incredible glaciers below.
For an up-close opportunity to appreciate this ancient landscape, your pilot will land in two different locations, where you will continue the tour on foot. You will have the opportunity to explore and take photographs of the stunning untouched landscape. Once on the ice, your pilot will escort you on an informative walk on the glacier’s surface while describing the magnificent area that surrounds you. On the second landing, you’ll spend an extended time on the glacier and be treated to champagne and locally handcrafted chocolate truffles.
Afterward, you'll be transported to Auke Bay, where you’ll board your private yacht for the day. Onboard, you’ll find more champagne, wine, local Alaskan Brewing Co. Beer, and a beautiful charcuterie board.
Once we’re on the water, keep your eyes peeled for humpback whales and other world-class wildlife like orcas, bald eagles, harbor seals, Steller sea lions, and even the occasional brown or black bear. Our master captain and expert naturalist take you to the best locations and share their local knowledge on the area and its wildlife.
Most importantly, you can rest assured that Alaska Luxury Tours & TEMSCO helicopters will do everything we can to make this an adventure of a lifetime.
