2-4 Hours

Helicopter Hiking Adventures

Choose your departure location from Anchorage or the Knik River Valley via helicopter and land on the high alpine ridges above the Knik and Colony Glaciers. Choose a 2 or 4 hour tour depending on your fitness level or adventurous side and experience the remote raw beauty of Alaska away from the crowds. During this tour you will see wildlife, flora and fauna, as well as glaciated peaks and waterfalls; your guide will take you on the tour of your choice into the mountains while sharing knowledge of the surrounding areas. *Choose to add a provided lunch for an additional fee.

 

You will receive a full kit supplied to you consisting of a drysuit to keep you dry and warm, personal flotation device, paddle board, paddle as well as micro-spikes for walking on the glacier. First your guides will have you practice paddle boarding down a flowing glacier creek to get in touch with your balance on the board; once you feel comfortable, we will trek to the glacier lake using a fixed rope system to the swimming hole. You and your guide will participate in a few jumps into the glacial lake to make you feel as comfortable as possible with getting in and out of the water. This will help to understand the drysuit / PFD system in the event you lose your balance on the paddle board in the lake, you will feel prepared to get back on. Once you feel ready to take on your paddle, we will connect you to your leash and send you off into the lake for a serene paddle out and back to the end of the lake.

 

Choose to have a catered sit down lunch while you are there or just snack and swim at your leisure, this is your day, your adventure!
