We took the seaplane ride over the glaciers to Taku Lodge for a bbq salmon bake. The weather was glorious, the trip spectacular (although a little bumpy) and the food in the log cabin was delicious. Added bonus when a brown bear came waddling down a path to greet us! Not particularly cheap, but worth every single penny. Alaska is... More

Incredible excursion! My husband and I are well rounded world travelers and taking the Taku Glacier Lodge excursion on Wings Airways was one of the best choices we've ever made. Seeing the expanse of the Juneau Ice Fields and hearing the informative narrative were so interesting. A genuine wilderness excursion, once we arrived at the "off the grid" lodge on... More

We cruised Alaska on Holland America and took the sea plane ride to Taku Glacier Lodge as day excursion. This was the highlight of our entire week and is not to be missed. You will fly over massive glaciers and land on a lake at Taku Lodge. The Salmon bake was wonderful and the area is pristine. The hosts at... More

My wife and I celebrated our 35th anniversary with an Alaskan cruise, and this excursion was the crown jewel. The staff couldn't have been nicer. I got to sit in the co pilot seat and had a Birdseye view taking off out of the harbor and climbing over the huge cruise ships, skimming just over the glacier fields and then... More

to rave about this trip. You board a float-plane to get to the lodge. I love float-planes! You can land them almost anywhere in AK. It was the first time my daughters had flown on one and my older girl got to sit next to the pilot. The smile on her face... She was beaming and now, she wants to... More

We travelled to Taku Lodge via Wings Airways and will book it again on our next trip to Juneau. We visited in Sep 2016 via NCL Pearl. Pick up at the ship was flawless.

This was our excursion in Juneau while on an Alaska cruise. We'd heard so many great things about this trip, and it did not disappoint. Wings Airways was easy to work with; I contacted them month in advance to secure our spot. Their directions for getting ourselves (an easy walk) from the, dock to their office were clear and easy...

Amazing experience to take flight from the water, then to get to see the stunning landscape from the air. Decent amount of time up in the air to catch the sights

As a local I've done a lot of trips around the area and this is one of the bests. It's a perfect way to see the ice fields and glaciers and take in some wilderness along the way. The staff are so great and knowledgeable about the area. The owners are all local which helps. The Lodge is delightful and... More

The sightseeing from the plane was ok, were able to get a glimpse into icefield which was pretty spectacular but the commentary ruined the experience for me. They played a completely outdated pre recorded narrative during the flight. It was so incorrect and antiquated that I left feeling offended. I was so shocked at the way it portrayed glacial health...
