Amazing experience to be able to walk across a glacier--the helicopter ride was incredibly scenic, and Orin provided just the right amount of narration as we flew up above the water, and to the ice field. Mariah and the other guides provided helpful commentary, safe...More

This trip was just out of this world. We ended up being really lucky and having temperatures in the 50's with a full sun, so it was much more comfortable than I had expected. At first, you are driven to the main building where they...More

I am unable to locate your "cancellation" policy on your website. I will be arriving via cruise ship (Celebrity-Infinity) but on my last cruise to Alaska on Holland weather would not allow us to port in Juneau, nor Ketchikan .. huge storm! I had booked via the cruise line for a helicopter/glacier trek but of course it was cancelled and my money was credited back to me. I am very excited to plan a second try at this adventure, but am concerned I will loose my money if the ship doesn't go into port when it is scheduled. I want to do this SO much ! thanks ... looking forward to hearing from you. I sent a reservation request to your website.
