Leave all traces of civilization behind and experience the infinite beauty of Alaska’s remote glaciers. Lift off from the historic Skagway waterfront and head into a rugged region of sheer mountains, majestic valleys and massive glaciers. Jagged peaks towering over the Chilkat Glacier, cascading waterfalls, surrounding the Ferebee Glacier, or the spectacular “river of ice” known as the Meade Glacier, may be among the wonders you encounter. Flight routes and landing zones are selected daily to ensure that you receive the best that the area has to offer.
Once you have reached your destination, you will be given the rare opportunity to explore one of Mother Nature’s greatest marvels. Enjoy a walking tour of a lifetime as our experienced glacier guides answer all of your questions and work to explain the awesome forces at work.
Duration: 1 hour 20. Tour includes approximately 40 minutes of helicopter time and 40 minutes on the glacier. Times will vary due to weather and glacier conditions.
Note: These tours are conducted under the helicopter Tour Operators Program of Safety (TOPS). These are the best management practices for making your safety the top priority. (Flight routes and landing sites may vary due to weather and glacier conditions.)
We comply with the flightseeing/wildlife viewing practices adopted by the Alaska Visitor’s Association. These guidelines were established to be sensitive to, and insure the continued viability of area wildlife species.
Due to weight and balance limitations, and passenger safety and comfort, we may charge an additional rate to reserve extra space onboard the helicopter for passengers that are above a certain weight.
Guests should wear warm and comfortable clothing. Sunglasses are recommended.· Photo opportunities abound...Don’t forget your camera!
