Ahhhhhhhhh.... I'm soooooooooo confused! I'm from Hawaii, never ever seen snow! Alaska has been a dream for me since I was 12! I'm going on the diamond cruise in August. Has anyone done the 6 hour Heli/glacier extended trek in Juneau? It's like 4 hours of hiking and climbing ice!!! It's $445.00 bucks though! So my question is......instead of doing 4 or 5 little excursions for like $100 bucks each ie; hiking, snorkling, kyaking, etc......maybe it would be a once in a lifetime thing to get in a helicoper and get dropped on a GIGANTIC glacier to explore, hike and ice climb??? Can ANYONE enlighten me about what would be the most exciting, adventures, life changing experience in Alaska?
