Default What's your favorite flightseeing?

I am trying to decide between Misty Fijords from Ketchikan and glaciers/Taku Lodge from Juneau. Any experience with those or other favorites? - I'd like to feel like I'm out in the middle of nowhere......

Both are float planes, you will feel out in no where if you consider going to Misty Fjords and on an extended hike with Island Wings. Taku Lodge has hundreds of passagers tour there. I also thought the extended time there necessary for the meal was too extended, I could have left sooner than they did. There is plenty else to do in Juneau. But best of the best flying is a glacier helicopter landing in my experience.

I did both! The Misty Fjords was great, but if you have to choose, the Taku Lodge was better. I know the previous writer said that the meal time was too long, but my husband and I hiked on the trails in that area, and everyone in my group seemed to enjoy relaxing at the lodge (sitting in the front porch swing, shopping in the gift shop, taking pictures, etc.), which has much historic significance. The lodge faces a glacier, so the area is very pretty. The flight there and back is wonderful--great scenery--so I highly recommend that one.
