GRAND KNIK TOUR - YEAR ROUND

tour. If you only have one day in Alaska, this is a tour you should consider.

The Alaska Trifecta! Glaciers, icebergs and amazing alpine views.

Grand Knik Tour

This is one of our staff favorites as you have time to really experience the stunning beauty of the area by combining three activities. Fly by helicopter past Lake George, awarded Natural Landmark status for its scenic beauty. As the helicopter flies up what we call moose meadow, keep your eyes peeled for moose on the valley floor. Descending, you’ll realize the scale of the glacier as the ice wall comes into view. Everything out here is XXL size!  You will have a half-hour to explore and take pictures, calving happens often.

For your second landing, you will fly high above to an alpine meadow where you will have a unique birds eye view of the massive Knik glacier below, with Colony and Cataract glacier across Lake George. There is a good chance we’ll see bears foraging along the hillsides during the flight. We almost always see moose and Dall sheep.

Finally, your grande adventure has you flying to the middle of the Knik Glacier for a third landing at the azure colored melt pools. See the deep blue ice, and learn about the life cycle of glaciers and why they are so important to human life across the globe. You will have another half hour to safely explore the glacier with your experienced pilot / guide. Don't forget your water bottle so you can fill it up with that crystal clear glacier water! An adventure you will be telling friends and family about for years to come!
