Glacier Flightseeing & Landing
Alaskan Helicopter Flightseeing Adventure! Take a helicopter flightseeing trip and land on a Glacier! Learn first-hand how Moraines, Crevasses, Seracs and more are formed!
Soar high above the lush rain forest, incredibly deep valleys and awe-inspiring peaks, you’ll marvel at vistas seen by few! Your pilot will give you an eagle’s-eye view of high alpine lakes, Icefalls hanging from glacial cliffs, and some of the most remote peaks in America.
See places like the jagged peaks towering over the Chilkat Glacier, cascading waterfalls surrounding the Ferebee Glacier, or the spectacular “river of ice” known as the Meade Glacier. This itinerary is flexible and your pilot is free to create the best possible flightseeing based on the weather and glacier conditions.
Flight routes and landing zones are selected daily to ensure that you receive the best that the area has to offer. For a first hand appreciation of this ancient landscape you will have time to do a short tour on foot! During these landings, you will learn about the geological and environmental processes at work creating moraines, crevasses, seracs, and the glaciers themselves.
