NorthStar Trekking LLC

NorthStar Trekking offers three levels of glacier trekking experiences on the glaciers of the Juneau Icefield. The treks are designed to provide small groups of clients with no mountaineering experience an informative and in-depth glacier experience. A broad range of physical abilities can be accomodated on the three levels of treks offered. Appropriate mountaineering gear is provided for each level of trekking. Each trip includes about 30-35 minutes of helicopter flight time to take you to and from the glacier landing site. We use A-Star helicopters, an aicraft that has become the standard in the air tour industry. Each of the three levels of treks provides a different length of time on the glacier and a different level of physical activity. Whichever trip you choose . . . We'll see you on the glacier!
