Default Helicopter Tour - Juneau or Skagway

We're booked on the Golden to Alaska this September. Any recommendations on which town to book a helicopter/glacier landing? Juneau or Skagway? We'll be in port from noon until 10:00 p.m. in Juneau and from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. in Skagway.

Book where you have the most time. Depending on when in Sept. by mid Sept it is dark at 7pm. So factor in early dusk, and your other touring plans.

Yep, do like Karen says. Go where it fits your schedule best. It's the same ice-field accessed from either port, so consider the vendor, pricing, and whether you have something planned in the other port.

Also, be sure to contact the vendor directly when you're planning. Some companies end their season a bit before the ships do.

The only way to keep everyone happy is to delete my signature completely.
If anyone wants advice from a life-long Alaskan resident, please don't hesitate to ask.
