Helicopter Rock Climbing

2-4 Hours

Helicopter Rock Climbing

Choose your departure location from Anchorage or the Knik River valley via helicopter and climb where no one has climbed before. This tour is meant for beginner climbers looking to dabble in the sport, as well as intermediate climbers that would like a taste of what Alaska has to offer off the beaten path; here you will experience incredible views of the Knik Glacier and the river valley.

 

No experience is required, all the gear you need will be provided for you, all you have to do is choose the amount of time you would like to spend with us in this remote location, tour options include 2 hours or 4 hours with lunch provided on the 4 hour tour.

 

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!
