We did the helicopter/dogsled tour. It was wonderful. All of the staff members were great. From the young man who drove the shuttle to the helicopter pilot to the musher, etc., etc. An adventure of a lifetime

Yes, the price is steep (though not as much as if we booked with the cruise ship) but this was the highlight of our trip. The helicopter ride was amazing and even with two people with queasy stomachs, no one got sick. The pristine glacier...More

This was so much fun. We booked directly with the company since there were 6 of us and only 5 spots left through the cruise ship. By booking directly they were able to get all of us on the same helicopter. It was beautiful to...More

The best tour we've ever been on. Our pilot was awesome and the visit to the glacier was way above what we expected. Once in a lifetime opportunity and worth every penny!

what is the cost of the glacier tour and can you only book it thru the cruise line. This is my mom's forever dream and she is 89 years old...can she do this?

It was cheaper to book it independently. As long as she can climb into the helicopter and walk on a surface that is a bit uneven she can do it. My mom is 94 and definitely couldn't do it now but definitely could have at 89.
My husband, grandson, and I are about to book the TEMSCO Helicopter Glacier/Dogsledding tour for June 17. There are three time slots available, 8:45 a.m, 12:15 p.m, and 12:45 p.m. Is the weather more likely to be clear in the morning or in the early afternoon? My husband and I did this a few years ago, and it was a highlight of our trip, but I don't want our grandson to be disappointed if the trip is cancelled or modified due to weather.
