Taku Glacier Flightseeing and
Wilderness Lodge Salmon Bake
Narrated nostalgic floatplane tour! Ice Field and Glacier views! Historic wilderness lodge and salmon bake!
A Top 10 Alaska shore excursion! Taku Glacier Lodge a favorite
Fly in a nostalgic floatplane over five breathtaking glaciers to an authentic wilderness
lodge for a king salmon feast. You’ll see why Taku
Glacier Lodge is a favorite tour in Alaska! A true Alaskan
experience, your adventure begins the moment you take off
from Juneau's downtown waterfront.
Each guest enjoys a window seat to get an unrestricted view of up to five magnificent glaciers
of the Juneau Icefield, as well as deep blue crevasses,
snow-capped mountains, cascading waterfalls and lush forests.
You’ll enjoy full narration throughout the flight.
The Taku River will be your runway as you come in for a
landing at the Historic Taku Lodge built in 1923. The Lodge
is located across the river from the Hole-in-the-Wall Glacier.
Shortly after your arrival, the
aroma of alder-grilled salmon tells you the feast
is about to begin. As the fire crackles, you’ll savor
the Lodge-cooked feast of baked beans, coleslaw, pioneer
fruit compote, fresh herb biscuits and sourdough bread to
complement the grilled-to-perfection Alaska Salmon. Hot
Russian tea, coffee, beer, wine or iced tea and lemonade
chilled with actual glacier ice and special recipe ginger
cookies complete the meal.
While enjoying your meal your host will entertain you with stories of the early day
characters like Mary Joyce and her famous dog sled trip.
The Lodge’s unique interior is decorated with old
dog sleds, hunting and trapping gear, furs and skins. The
roaring fire in the rock fireplace makes a cozy place to
enjoy company of new friends and relive the stories of the
brave souls that homesteaded this area.
Often the aroma of salmon attracts
a local black bear in search of a tasty morsel. Bear
often visit the barbecue pit area in search of leftovers!
I’ve seen them often from the safety of the lodge
many times; and it is fantastic! Bring your film. Before
your flight back to Juneau, stroll the trails of an old
growth forest or relax with a beverage and breathe in the
serenity and crystal clean air of a place scarcely touched
by time. Bring comfortable shoes.
