From quick 30 minute flight to full day expeditions
Join us for helicopter tours departing from Merrill Field Airport in downtown Anchorage or our glacier base at Knik River Lodge year round. These tours are great if you only have a day to play. We have transfers available that can pick you up at your hotel, so it's super convenient.
Arriving or departing on an Alaska Cruise? You will most likely fly in or out of Anchorage and we can show you all the stuff you don’t see from the ship. Choose from a flight into the wild Chugach Mountains with a landing on a glacier, or a summer dogsled tour on real snow. If you have more time we can take you heli hiking or - biking and explore some real wilderness and still be back in time for dinner. One of our staff favorites is the Iceberg Tour where you take a helicopter to a remote lake and explore massive icebergs up close by zodiac-style boat.
If you would like to spend some extra time in the wilderness consider an overnight at Knik River Lodge or Wilderness Place Lodge. See our Overnight Packages.
For winter visitors, we have some ‘cool’ options as well: the glaciers are stunning in the winter and we can land right on the ice or next to the icebergs in Lake George. If you have a bit more time, consider guided heli snowshoeing or dogsledding. If you are more of a motor-head, choose our helicopter & snowmobile tours and rip up some deep pow with views of the Alaska Range.
Knik River Lodge has great aurora viewing between September and March. Stay a night in one of the cozy cabins, see the northern lights and go on a helicopter glacier tour; the perfect winter package!
The Anchorage / Knik glacier area is a great playground year-round. We look forward to sharing it with you.
