We took the ERA Helicopter and four glacier tour when we were in Juneau and, for me it was the highlight of our cruise.

I had been told that if you really wanted to view Alaska one needs to get in a plane or helicopter to really get the Alaska experience.
The excursion was absoultely wonderful. The scenery brings new meaning to " takes your breath away".

We landed on one of the glaciers, I think it was the Norris or the Taku.
Our pilot was was alot of fun and well versed on glaciers.
You wil be amazed at the snow covered mountain ranges. One side will be all ice and snow and the other lush green. We saw a mother bear with her cub, Dahl Sheep and a Moose in one of the valleys.
You will not be disappointed.
Oh My, just writing about this brings back all the memories and excitment.
Can't wait to go again.

We are booked on the same excursion in September.

Glad to hear it gets a few good reviews.
