We plan to do the glacier landing. We've been told it can't be missed. Where is the best place to do that? Juneau? I was just reading about a tour to Tracy Arm which sounds awesome, but it's an all day excursion. If we did that in Juneau then we'd have to do a glacier landing somewhere else. Our other stops are Ketchikan, Icy Straight Point, Skagway and ending in Seward. Can you visit a glacier from any of those places?
If you are ending in Seward, are you planning on spending any extra time on land? The reason I ask is that you can hike on the Matanuska Glacier that is a couple hours from Anchorage. We used Mica Guides, but there are others. It was great and a lot cheaper than a helicopter ride.
