Coastal Helicopters is specialized in offering Alaska Helicopter Tours in Juneau and Haines Alaska . The ICEFIELD EXCURSION is Coastal Helicopters most popular trip. 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 the Herbert, Taku, Lemon or Norris Glacier. The tour will be narrated 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.
Landings on glaciers inside the Tongass National Forest are under permits issued by the USDA Forest Service.
