We want to book a pilots choice glacier tour but can't decide between Juneau or Skagway? Does anyone know which is better? Also is the pilots choice worth the extra money or is the mendenhall flight just as good?
The difference is a single or double landing. For clairfication- Mendenhall isn't the only glacier landing avialable of the Juneau icefield- nor the best. Any glacier is spectacular and in a constant state of change. My suggestion- if booking the expensive tour will cause you to miss out on something else, compromise with the cheaper flight. Alaska is a varied destination with much to experience and plan on a repeat trip.
