One of the best experiences of our lives. Chris and Bridget are some of the nicest and best people we have ever met. We did a glacier landing adventure, and unlike some other companies in the area (who we saw land and leave very quickly) we had a good amount of time on the ice where Chris took us on a mini hike to some of the waterfalls and pools on the glacier. It was truly a memorable experience and highly recommend it to everyone. Also, if your looking for help planning your Alaska itinerary, make sure to reach out to Bridget!

It was trip of our life time. We landed on the glacier using the helicopter ride which is probably the 8th wonder of the world. Bridget and pilot (Chris) were very friendly with top notch customer service and pilot did took us to really beautiful spots on the glaciers. I will highly recommend using this company for the helicopter ride on the glaciers as it exceeded our expectations.

This was an amazing experience! Our son and his lovely bride eloped to an Alaska glacier and invited us along! Chris and Bridget did everything anyone could do to make it special and to make us comfortable. When we needed to delay for a few hours due to weather, Bridget kept us informed with frequent updates until we were able to fly. Wow! The views were other-worldly! I think it was everything the wedding couple wished for! Chris is a great pilot and made the flights in and out so interesting, pointing out wildlife along the way. Bridget was so kind and thoughtful! Both were careful to preserve the pristine environment. I'd love to fly with them again if I were ever back in Alaska!

We had a wonderful experience! Our guide Chris made us feel safe, and was quite knowledgeable about the wilderness and glacier. I would definitely recommend Outbound for a helicopter tour and glacier landing 🙂

Chris and Bridgett were incredible throughout this entire process. We felt safe as they took time to go over safety procedures, and they used quality items on the glacier to keep us safe. Chris, our pilot, was very knowledgeable when it came to the ever changing glacier. We spent about an hour out on the glacier itself exploring and learning what different parts meant. During our flight, Chris kept an eye out for wildlife and we saw a moose bathing in a lake. Make sure you take an empty water bottle to fill up with fresh glacier water! Also, we flew over half of our party while they were eating lunch, that chose the ATV tour. It was an incredible experience. I would do it again and again, and I would choose Outbound Heli every single time. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

Outstanding!!! Awe inspiring!!! This was icing on the cake for our Alaskan adventure. To be flown out onto a glacier and be able to walk around, seeing the unique and ever changing landscape of the ice, brilliant pools, drain holes, waterfalls... there are no words. It was "other-worldly." Chris was an amazing pilot and gave us the most awesome experience. And Bridgett was an awesome host as well. They went above and beyond. We LOVED them!! If you are planning a trip to Alaska - do not miss Outbound Heli Adventures. You will not regret it!

You need to take this tour! We came to anchorage with the original plan to hike but had to change plans last minute due to an injury. With a quick phone call we were able to book a last minute helicopter ride to Knick Glacier and it was amazing!! The level of professionalism, ease, and experience with this company is second to none and I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again.

What an amazing experience. Chris was very professional and knowledgeable about the area that we flew over. The Knik Glacier was absolutely beautiful. Landing on the glacier was such a surreal moment and being able to walk around and see it up close with my wife was amazing. I would definitely recommend using Outbound Heli Adventures for any of your tour or backcountry fight needs.

Great customer service from the first phone call! We looked up a bunch of different helicopter tours, and Chris and Bridget sold us right away. They were kind and helpful on the phone. Chris and another pilot Eric took my group of 4 onto the Knik Glacier. We saw mountain goats and moose on our flight! When we landed on the glacier, we spent around an hour exploring. Chris shared a ton of knowledge about the glacier and wildlife in the area. We grabbed a bottle full of the glacier water, explored the crevices and hills on the glacier, and took tons of great pictures. I highly recommend this tour. Take your time and enjoy it!

On the morning of 16 July 21, we toured via 2 helicopters the Knick Glacier and surrounding area. The copters were clean and appeared to be well maintained. The two pilots, Chris and Dan, could not have been nicer. They were courteous, helpful, knowledgeable, and professional. Having almost 10,000 hours as a USAF navigator in C-130, T-29, and T-43 aircraft, I thoroughly appreciated the skill and effort these two pilots exhibited flying in both beautiful, yet challenging terrain. Thanks guys for an awesome experience. Dan

We took a Heli tour out to the Colony Glacier. WHAT AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE! Chris is an amazing pilot and if we noticed something below as we were flying past it, he'd swing back around to get a better look instead of making it a mechanical experience. We are so glad we went with this company for a personable, fun experience that we will never forget!

Bridgette had us up in a helicopter a few hours after calling! Was the day before we left Alaska and what a amazing way to end our trip!! Breath taking! Chris did a amazing job on our flight. It was very laid back and not pushy or rushed. We got to land on a glacier and enjoy the scenery! 10/10

This was my favorite thing I’ve ever done in Alaska and that’s saying a lot b/c I lived there for 6 months and explored a ton! Chris and Bridget gave us an amazing experience! The flight was smooth, they didn’t rush us like the other companies do. We were out on the glacier exploring for a long time and even got to do the polar plunge! This was our biggest highlight of our Alaska vacation. Such a beautiful place and a wonderful company. I highly recommend!

We had such a great experience with Alaska Backcountry Adventure Tours. The staff were all very friendly and professional. The check-in process was easy and quick. They actually had room for our tour, on the last day of our trip. We were so grateful, since most places were booked. Safety measures were a priority. Bridget was so sweet and Chris was the best pilot and tour guide, and he spotted wild animals from a mile away! We saw lots of Moose, a few mountain goats, and bears! And that was icing on the cake. The glacier landing was breathtaking and beautiful! Thank you all. I cannot wait to return. Thanks for the water bottle stickers!Jersey Jeanne

Chris & Bridget are top notch with the customer service and info on the tours! We booked a heli trip out to the glacier to find those beautiful blue glacier waters to paddle board on. Chris found us a wonderful pool to play in. They were so thorough with info on the area as well as full of ideas! We will definitely be back to book with them again!Live life and enjoy all you can!!

Must do! This was a bucket list activity and they nailed it!! Heli flight to the Knik Glacier. It was scenic and beautiful. We landed on the glacier!!!! We trekked on the glacier for breath taking views and pictures. We drank glacier water and filled up our water bottles. The deep blue pools of water and ice is nothing like you'll ever see. Bridget and Chris and Chaz (our pilot) are the best. We saw moose and bald eagles! Absolute best. Easy to book and they can customize to your needs. Don't book with anyone else. This outfitter is 100% You won't regret it! Thanks Bridget!!

After having our wedding canceled twice during the pandemic, my fiancé and I recently decided to abandon our plans and elope to Alaska. We hired Joe Connolly of Chugach Peaks Photography (highly recommended) to officiate/photograph the wedding. Joe works with various companies in Alaska to charter helicopters for these types of events, but we were lucky enough to have Outbound Heli with us for our big day.Having never been to Alaska, it was somewhat nerve-racking to think about spending seven hours flying from one remote wilderness location to the next. But our pilot Chris immediately calmed those nerves. In terms of his expertise, Chris is not only a helicopter pilot, but also a former helicopter mechanic in the Marine Corps. He was in complete command of the aircraft and made smooth landings in seemingly impossible places. Even apart from his flying, Chris made us feel completely safe the entire day, standing lookout for wildlife while we posed for wedding photos and carrying a “throw bag” in case one of us slipped into a blue glacial pool—a safety precaution our experienced photographer commented he’d never seen another helicopter pilot take.Equally important on our wedding day, Chris was warm, patient, and a perfect gentleman. He did everything from help install microspikes on our shoes before slippery walks to take pictures during our ceremony when Joe performed his officiating duties. Far from being disengaged, Chris was by our side the whole seven-hour day and never even looked at his watch.When we booked our trip, we had no expectations for our helicopter pilot other than to safely take us from Point A to Point B. But now it’s hard to imagine that day without Chris, who was an important part of our memories.We’d be remiss not to also mention Bridget, who handled the administrative side of our trip, gave us our all-important safety briefing, and was lovely in every way from the moment we met her. If you’re looking for more than to simply hitch a ride, and want real, experienced, engaged travel guides, use Outbound Heli. If we ever return to Alaska, we would not call anyone else.

Such an epic adventure! Wow! Exploring the Knik Glaicer from the air is unbelievable and a must when visiting Anchorage. Outbound Heli is first class all the way! Bridget made booking and planning our trip a breeze. She is so knowledgeable of the area and was even able to help us find a place to stay! Our pilot Chris was so rad and friendly. We immediately felt like family. Landing on the Glaicer is also a must when visiting Alaska! I can’t wait to bring the rest of my family back for another EPIC Adventure with Outbound Heli! I highly recommend Outbound Heli to check off your “Alaska Helicopter Adventure Tour” from your bucket list! Give them a call!

Wow, what an amazing experience! Pictures don’t do this adventure justice. Flying over the Alaskan terrain on our way to the Knik Glacier was a once in a lifetime experience for my wife and I. The flight alone was worth it as we soared over countless wildlife. The entire Outbound Heli Adventure crew were extremely kind, helpful, and full of information on our excursion. If we came back we would absolutely do this again!!

I went on a tour with Outbound Heli Adventures to the Knik Glacier yesterday. It was a beautiful day and the pilot and helicopter were top notch! We landed next to a glacier pool that was so blue and clear it was unbelievable! We brought empty water bottles and fill them with the most refreshing water. The sights were more amazing than I could even describe and we saw tons of moose, dall sheep, mountain goats, and bald eagles! It was an incredible experience that i would recommend for EVERYONE!

We came to Alaska on a whim for a weekend getaway and called Kodiak Helicopters as soon as welanded in Anchorage looking for a flight seeing tour. We spoke with Bridget and she gave us a variety offun and exciting options to choose from and decided to go heli-hiking! My husband was nervous about his first time flying a helicopter and Chris graciously gave us an in depth tour of the helicopter and all thesafety features the helicopter had to put his nerves at ease. We spent over 4 hours hiking in unimaginable terrain and decided on the way back while flying over the glacier that it would have been great to land on it too. Without hesitation, Chris offered to land us on top of the glacier where we spent the next hour exploring the glacier and filling up our water bottles with glacier water! This is a must do if you are in Alaska!We go on a helicopter flight everywhere we travel, but our trip with Kodiak Helicopters topped all the others.
