The Chugach Explorer
Heli Flightseeing & Multiple Landing Adventure
See the Chugach Range from the air as your helicopter pilot takes you on an epic flying adventure. Experience exceptional, unobstructed views of the last frontier from the air. Take flight over stunning mountain peaks and have the opportunity to spot wildlife, towering waterfalls, dramatic glacial terrain and the beauty that is unique to Alaska!
Choose your flight path and destination based on your bucket list items to see. This adventure allows you to choose your number of landings and landing locations: step foot on the exposed ice of a glacier in the Knik Valley and trek with your pilot to explore the many facets of the glacial surface (Moulins, blue pools, and deep crevasses), or land high above in the Alaskan alpine and take in large, sweeping sights of glaciers and rocky ridgelines, choose to land on the shoreline of a massive glacial lake filled with berggie bits and giant floating icebergs, a rocky beach at the face of a dramatic ice wall, and/or let your pilot take you to their favorite landing location!
This multiple landing flight is the best option for those seeking varied landscapes for photographic opportunities and filming events.
*In the winter months, landing directly on the surface of the glacier may not be safe due to snow depth. Landing may be at the terminus of the glacier near an ice wall, on the shoreline of a frozen iceberg filled lake, or in the gorge of the glacier to explore ice caves.. All offer an opportunity to experience the tones of blue infamous of glacier views.
