Default Has anyone tried a Helicopter Icefield Excursion?

by coastal helicopter...is this better than mendehall coastal glacier tour?


The ICEFIELD EXCURSIONis Coastal Helicopters most popular tour. This tour is approximately 1 hour from the time it lifts off until it returns to the heliport. Your helicopter flight will take you over the spectacular rock formations and icefalls of the Juneau Icefield as it heads toward either Herbert, Taku, Lemon or Norris Glacier. The tour will be narrated by either our custom CD or by our knowledgeable pilot/guide. Upon reaching your destination your pilot/guide will shut down the helicopter and escort you on an informative, relaxing walk while describing the area that surrounds you.

I would say not. If you are not from this area and are not familar with the various glaciers either trip is going to knock your socks off.

Mendenhall is no better/worse than any other glacier landing. Only more known. Glaciers are in a constant state of change, all landings are unique to that time. Go with who fits your schedule best.
