Explore Alaska's pristine natural beauty in an exciting new way during this scenic and memorable helicopter ride and glacier trek.

Depart the pier for the brief transfer to the helicopter base. Upon arrival, you will board a helicopter for the scenic flight to your glacial trekking site. Upon arrival, your guides will teach you the proper use of the mountaineering gear (ice axe, crampons, harness and helmet) so that the remote areas of the glacier can be accessed.

After receiving your safety and tour instructions and gear, you will join your mountaineering guides for a 2-hour trek through the glacial icescape. Along the way, your guides will provide you with detailed explanations of the glacial environment and surrounding area.

Following your trek, you will reboard your helicopter for the return flight to the helicopter base, then be transferred back to the pier.

The minimum age to participate on this tour is 12 years old; children 16 years old and under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. No prior experience is required to participate on this tour.
