Leave all traces of civilization behind you in Skagway and experience the infinite beauty of Alaska’s remote glaciers on this 2.5 hour flightseeing trip by helicopter culminating with a landing on an Alaska glacier. Depending on the weather, you’ll see Chilkat Glacier, Ferebee Glacier, and/or Meade Glacier.

Your cruise excursion adventure begins here...

Day 1

Lift off in your helicopter from the historic Skagway waterfront and head into a rugged region of sheer mountains, majestic valleys, and massive glaciers.

Flight routes and landing zones are selected daily by your experienced pilots based on the weather forecast to ensure that you can see the best possible highlights in the area. Potential routes showcase the jagged peaks towering over Chilkat Glacier, cascading waterfalls surrounding the Ferebee Glacier, and the spectacular “river of ice” known as the Meade Glacier.

Once you have reached your ultimate destination, you are given the rare opportunity to explore one of Mother Nature’s greatest marvels – landing on and exploring a glacier! Enjoy a walk on this river of ice, while experienced glacier naturalist guides answer your questions and explain the awesome forces at work for centuries below your feet.
