    • Flightseeing over an Alaskan glacier...which one?

      Alaska 4 hours ago

      I am going on a northbound cruise of Alaska with my wife and in-laws. We are going on the Royal Caribbean 7N Northbound Alaska & Hubbard Glacier cruise.
      It will stop at various ports along the way between Vancouver and Seward. We will fly back from Anchorage. There are many flightseeing excursions over Alaskan glaciers at the various ports during the cruise itinerary. They are of course rediculousy expensive and I will restrict/treat myself to ONLY one. I will be doing it alone or with the wife (the in-laws will not be with us for this period!). But which flightseeing excursion?

      Photography is my passion...fluidr.com/photos/phil_mario...
      So I would like to be on a flightseeing excursion that is photoworthy and am ensured a window seat to shoot from, so it is best to be in a helicopter or floatplane where the wing attaches to the top of the fuselage as this doesn't obstruct the view as much as a lower placed wing would.

      So the ports I can flightsee from are Ketchikan (Misty Fjords ), Icy Strait Point (Glacier Bay National Park), Juneau (helicopter over Juneau Icefield or a 5-Glacier Seaplane trip), Skagway (Chilkat Glacier system) or Anchorage (Denali/Mt. McKinley and Ruth & Kahiltna Glaciers).

      I have been to Perito Moreno glacier in Argentina and will soon see various Alaskan glaciers from sea level so with this flightseeing trip I am most interested in aerial shots that best depict the glaciers as rivers of ice. Dramatic mountains are a plus.

      Are there any well heeled travellers here that have been on some of these excursions and can recommend one over the others? Or know of other resourses I can use to find out?

      Sincerest thanks!

    • Magic Bus - Christopher McCandless

      Alaska Mar 31, 2014 at 8:45 AM

      Hi,

      My name is Gary and I'm currently looking to book an extended trip to travel across America. One of the locations I would like to visit it The 'Magic' Bus just off the Stampede Trail. When would be the safest time of year to hike out to the bus and are there also any tour guides who would accompany heading out there? I just wanted to check as I would rather not go out alone.

      I would be grateful for any information you could give me.

      Thanks

      Best Highlights of Juneau

      Hi Folks. I'm headed up to Alaska in a few days. Starting from Juneau, we'll be boating up and down the inner passage. (Father in law has a boat up there)

      I've researched a bit about the Juneau area and have the general lay of the land. Any input on the BEST highlight that you would suggest is not to be missed?

      Also will be spending some time at Taku Lodge...suggestions for highlights around there would be great!

      Thanks,

      Gold Creek Salmon Bake

      I am going to be visiting Juneau in a couple of weeks on a cruise line. I am thinking of attending the salmon bake and was wondering if any locals or tourists have any thoughts or comments about this place. Some say in their reviews that it's bad food and the facilty is not very kept up and others say it's great. For the price of45 I would like to get more info on this. Also would I need rain boots for this adventure? Trying to pack accordingly. Any help is greatly appreciated. I also will be there for about 9 hours so any suggestions on what to do on a budget. Also was thinking of going to the Alaskan beer company facility.

    • Getting back to cruise ship from Mendenhall Glacier after hours

      When does the "blue bus" stop running from Mendenhall Glacier to the cruise ships in early June? Later in the evening (~7 or 8pm) are there taxis readily available when leaving the glacier? Or do you have to schedule one hours in advance? Or the city bus, is it available later if we walk the mile and a half to the bus stop?
      Thanks!

      I will be arriving by cruise ship and been trying to find things to do without excursions. Heard a lot about Captain Larry @ Orca enterprise...is it worth booking. Does anyone know if Holland America books through them. Mendenhall Glacier, I want to see, should I do it by air or on foot. If so who should I use. Do you think I will have enough time to do both and use local transportation? Also I'm interested in doing the Zipline should i do it in Juneau or in Ketchiken? Hope you can help me out, don't know when I'll be back and want to do it right.

    • Questions about May trip

      by ujge7639 Online Now Jan 31, 2010 at 5:03 PM

      Hi,

      I am traveling to Alaska on a cruise ship and have a full day in Juneau. I have a couple of questions that I am hoping some people have feedback on:
      1). I will be in Junaeu on May 6th. I plan on going to Mendenhall Glacier. I noticed they have 3 shorter trails. The question I have is whether these trails (photo point, trail of time, and morraine ecology trail) are gromed (do they remove snow from the trails) or will you need to be prepared to walk on snow? Will it be warm enough to walk around on the trails?
      2). I have read up on Glacier Gardens and seen mixed reactions (tourist trap versus good attraction). Thoughts?
      3). Is Macaulay Salmon Hatchery worth a trip in early May when salmon aren't swimming up ladders?

      Thanks
