Hmm...we can’t seem to find this place. Please check the spelling, or choose another location.

This activity will end right where it started.We only pick up from within the town of Seward. Our shuttle driver will call when they are at the location if they do not see your party.
On arrival at the airport in Seward, meet your pilot for a brief orientation, then board your helicopter. Your pilot provides a radio headset that allows for communications during the flight.

Take off and head towards the Godwin Glacier, taking in the dense forest of Kenai Fjords National Park during the 15-minute flight. Pass over Resurrection Bay on the way to the Godwin Glacier, getting great views of floating icebergs below you and snow-capped mountains in the distance.

After your pilot lands the helicopter on the glacier, you'll have 15 minutes to snap photos of Alaska's majestic natural beauty and soak in the pristine atmosphere before reboarding the helicopter for the return flight to Seward.

Thoroughly enjoyed our experience, never been on a helicopter ride before so I was nervous but Cody our pilot was exceptional and we felt totally. Forrest our escort and orientation person completely informed us on what to do and how to behave around the aircraft and was exceptionally personable. Would highly recommend this adventure for anyone coming to Seward. It’s more than just a tour it was an adventure!! S.

From beginning to end it was such a memorable experience. Tanner was such a pleasure to have as a pilot. This has been my first time visiting Alaska as my fiancé is from here and we are from Texas. The views here have been incredible however it doesn’t compare to the sights we seen through this helicopter tour! The glacier was just spectacular and the phots we got, along with Tanner’s help taking them, are moments that will stick with us forever! If y’all are thinking of doing this for your first time, don’t! Just do it! You definitely won’t regret it!

Great way to see the Glacier up close. We flew out to the dog camp. I felt bad for the dogs that we chained up. Aside from that, great trip.

Our Glacier landing was scheduled...

Our Glacier landing was scheduled for 11am and it was raining and cloudy, but the excursion left on time and my daughter and I are glad it did. We had a GREAT time. The ladies in the office were friendly and even helped us decide where to eat afterwards. The pilot was informative and professional. Since it was raining hard at the glacier we only stayed for about 10 minutes but the pilot took the extra time to fly us around a little longer on the way back to the airport. We say three bull moose and several other animals. It was my daughters first helicopter flight and she loved the front seat view. We could not have had a better time.
