What You Can Expect

Helicopter Tour and Glacier Landing from Anchorage

helicopter glacier

Sit back, relax and get lost in the beauty of Alaska’s epic glacial scenery on this 4-hour helicopter tour. After hotel pickup in Anchorage, continue along the National Scenic Byway, stopping for photos and looking for wildlife, and enjoy water and snacks during the hour-long drive.

Upon arrival, receive a safety briefing for your 30-minute helicopter flight. Then the pilot takes you to the skies for hard-to-beat views of the Chugach Mountains and the Chugach State Park backcountry. Whiteout Glacier, Knik Glacier, and Lake George all are part of your aerial tableau. Listen to commentary from your pilot through your 2-way radio headset.

Next, get ready for a special venture: you’ll actually land on Colony Glacier. For 15 to 20 minutes, explore by foot the beautiful, surreal landscape that includes blue ice and impressive peaks.  

With plenty of photos taken, hop aboard your helicopter for the return flight (also 30 minutes) back to the departure point. Your Anchorage helicopter tour ends with transport back to your hotel.

This is a great tour. The view from the helicopter was just awesome and the landing on the glacier is also an unforgettable experience. On the flight to the glaciers, we manage to see the bear, sheep and rainbow.

This is a once in a lifetime experience, even on a cloudy, rainy day! It's a great way to see and explore Alaska. The beautiful blue glacier was the highlight. And we saw lots of moose. The staff was super friendly and helpful. I would recommend you wear snow boots, although they provided me with footwear and they borrowed my daughter a raincoat. The glacier and mountain views are spectacular. You need to see them for yourself! It's a trip you will never forget. Shannon- MN
