When you're Alaska's oldest and most experienced helicopter flight-seeing operator, you know quite a bit about the area's spectacular sights. Take one of the many tours Temsco operates for a second-to-none journey to the best Alaska has to offer.
Mendenhall Glacier by Helicopter and Guided Walk
Featured on Good Morning America, nothing compares to the thrill of flight unless it's the ageless, icy vistas of one of North America's largest icefield. Feeding the hundreds of glaciers that flow from it, the Juneau Icefield is a scene right out of the Ice Age. You'll be soaring above it all on Juneau's No. 1 rated sightseeing tour. Discover the striking views from your seat in the sky. Flying high above the wetland habitat, alpine ridges and the lush rain forests, you'll gain appreciation for this rugged land as your pilot shares a lively narrative. As you approach the icefield and its many glaciers you'll marvel at twisted spires, deep blue crevasses and carved peaks that make up the ancient landscape. Soaring even higher you may pass the Mendenhall Towers - jagged rock sentinels that climb more than 7,000 feet - and the spectacular icefalls that overflow to form the Mendenhall Glacier. View icefalls, spires and many hanging glaciers suspended on the surrounding mountainsides before a gentle landing on this slowly moving river of ice.
