Explore by air and you will understand why renown explorer John Muir, in 1879, described the LeConte Glacier as one of the "most imposing and first class glacier" he had ever seen. Marvel at the beauty and grandeur of this southernmost active tidewater glacier in North America. From towering icebergs to deep, jagged crevasses, this journey is breathtaking.
Crossing the massive Stikine Icefields, the tour continues its splendor by landing on the Patterson Glacier. You will have an opportunity to examine this ancient river of ice up close and personal with your pilot as your guide.
Duration: 1 hour and 20 minutes, includes flight time and one glacier landing. Please allow additional time for transportation and a helicopter safety briefing.
