Default helicoptor vs float plane

I'm trying to decide between the four glacier adventure via helicoptor and the glacier flightseeing via floatplane while in Juneau. The float plane sounds exciting but it doesn't land on a glacier. And does anyone know if the pilot's choice glacier exploration is better than the four glacier adventure? It is more money.

Glacier landings are better, by far. For the first time, I think if you can go cheaper with four glaciers, that would be just as exciting as the pilot's choice, unless the four glacier doesn't do landings.

Either helicopter trip will knock your socks off. I'd go with the less expesive one. If you have no physical impediment that would prevent you from walking on the glacier, for goodness sakes take the helicopter.

Having gone on both several times, a glacier helicopter landing is superior. Consider the cheapest available with Coastal, an excellent well run company that gives a great personal tour. Float planes are excellent flying Misty Fjords.
