Combine a scenic helicopter ride with a glacier landing.

Viewing the snow covered mountains, massive glaciers and majestic valleys from above will surely take your breath away.

One of the main reasons to visit Alaska is the spectacular scenery that exists out of reach of it's main cities, unless you look to the skies. The stoic mountains and glaciers in this region are an awesome sight and literally untouched by man.

After a brief safety overview, you will takeoff in a helicopter and view the gorgeous scenery from above. The routes of the flights are selected daily to ensure you have the best tour possible. The Chilkat Glacier, cascading waterfalls, and the "river of ice" known as the Meade Glacier may be among the wonders you encounter during your flight.

Your helicopter will land on or at the base of a glacier and you will be met by your experienced guide, who will take you on a 40-minute introduction and exploration of this craggy mass of ice.

This is a true Alaskan adventure that you will take home with you.
