Default Taku Lodge Juneau

Would anyone be able to tell me if they have taken the Wings of Alaska Floatplane Flightseeing combined with the Taku Wilderness Lodge and if it is worth doing. We will be taking a HAL cruise in May.

Yep I have been there. I am a minority- this place gets raves, but my clear preference is a glacier helicopter landing vs glacier flightseeing. I have been to many salmon bakes- it's ok there, but I was ready to leave long before we did. It eats up a lot of Juneau touring time, so if you're a first time visitor, be certain there isn't something else you want to see/do in Juneau???

Thanks Karen16, sounded good but the time factor was an issue. We are first time cruisers from Melbourne, Aust and want to make the most of our excursion time. We have chosen the glacier helicopter flight and dog sledding in Skagway as a definate though and hope it won't be cancelled as it was to be a splurging highlight for my wife and I. We have read many of your posts and as you are a seasoned traveller it has been interesting to read many of your valuable tips. Peter
