Default helicopter flights in Alaska
We are cruising with Princess line to Alaska at the end of May and are interested in knowing which is the best helicopter trip to take, one over the glaciers or one in Denali.

NCANN-Welcome to Cruise Reviews. I have been to Alaska three times but never taken a helicopter ride. It's possible no one on our board has taken both for a comparison. However; the helicopter ride over Mendenhall Glacier is very popular and it would give you an opportunity to see the expanse and beauty of the huge glacier. I'm sure flying over Denali would be just as beautiful. I doubt you could go wrong with either.

I'm sure both are spectacular; but if I had to choose, the chance to see a glacier up close and personal like that would be irresistible.

I'd do the flight in Denali since seeing the Mendenhall Glacier is easy to do on your own by catching an inexpensive but ride right at the pier. You might not get to see it from the air but at least you can say you've done it.
