Knik Glacier Landing

10 Customer Reviews

Our signature flightseeing and glacier landing tour, available in three different versions. All tours include a glacier landing right in the middle of Knik Glacier, where you can get out of the helicopter and spend about 30 minutes exploring ice thousands of years old with your pilot/guide. See the azure blue melt pools, crevasses and the bizarre ice formations created by water, wind and the sun.

* Tours departing from the Knik River Valley base have transfers available from select Anchorage locations for $49 per person round trip for our 10:15am, 12:30pm and 4:00pm departure times. The transfers can be booked online when you book your tour. Please refer to our FAQs page for detailed pickup information, or contact us for more information.

Great Options to Choose From

60 minutes – Best Value

The 60 minute tour departs from our base at Knik River Lodge and takes you over the Knik river & glacier through the Great Gorge towards Whiteout Glacier, Colony Glacier and the icebergs in Lake George. Land on the Knik glacier and explore with your pilot / guide.

75 minutes – Most popular!

The 75 minute tour is our most popular version as it includes everything you see on the 60 minute tour but adds more time to fly around Mount Gannet or the upper Knik glacier. Super scenic and lots of wildlife!.

120 minutes – Departs from Anchorage

The 120 minute tour departs from Merrill Field in downtown Anchorage. This means longer flight time and even more chance for wildlife. You'll land on the Knik glacier, just like with the shorter tours.
