Make your dream a reality by going on the journey of a lifetime with Wings Airways!
Wings Airways is your guide for this quintessential Alaska experience that begins with glacier flightseeing. Your floatplane whisks you off from the Juneau waterfront as you prepare to be amazed at the unrestricted panoramic views of magnificent glaciers and midnight blue crevasses of the Juneau Icefield. Nature’s wonders highlight this other-worldly 3-hour excursion that culminates with a rendezvous at Taku Glacier — the largest glacier in the Juneau ice field!
As you absorb the natural beauty of The Last Frontier, your Alaska flightseeing continues as your senses are overtaken with the breath-taking views of snow-capped mountains, cascading waterfalls, and lush forests! A full narration offers continuous story-telling and interesting facts during your glacier flightseeing as you get closer to your destination—the Taku Glacier by way of the Taku River.
Named by the local Tlingit natives, the Taku Glacier is the largest glacier in the icefield and one of the southernmost tidewater glaciers of the northern hemisphere.
Meanwhile, your floatplane hovers over the Taku River, which serves as your “runway” when you land near the Taku Lodge — nestled in an old-growth rain forest. The Taku Glacier sits amid the unspoiled Tongass National Forest— the largest national forest in the United States at 16.7 million acres.
As you enjoy the elegant rustic charm of the area surrounding the Taku Glacier Lodge, the aroma of Wild Alaska Salmon beckons you to the feast that is about to begin. Enjoy this seafood delicacy complemented with homemade side dishes for brunch, lunch or dinner, while actual glacier ice cools your drinks.
You’ll be regaled with stories of Taku Glacier Lodge’s colorful past and characters like Mary Joyce with her famous 1,000-mile dog sled trip that put the this unique lodge on the Alaska map. This one-of-a-kind Lodge is decorated with old dog sleds, hunting and trapping gear, furs and other Alaskan memorabilia.
This magical Alaskan excursion is all about you, and that is why you create your own itinerary after dinner. You can choose from several options that include wandering the well-maintained trials of the old growth forest, exploring on a guided interpretative nature walk, or relaxing with a beverage and soaking in the serenity of a place scarcely touched by time. You might even encounter a black bear.
Rain or shine, you’re guaranteed to have the trip of a lifetime as you admire Mother Nature’s exquisite beauty!
Let Wings Airways create an experience that will stay with you for the rest of your life! Everyone has a window seat!
