Glacier Discovery by Helicopter

Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from $513.03 NZD / Adult
Take off on a high-flying expedition that lands you right upon the face of one of Alaska’s awe-inspiring glaciers. Strap in to your helicopter seat and marvel at the sensation as you lift of into the Alaskan heavens. See the town of Skagway spread out beneath you and witness the sheer vastness of the Alaskan wilderness as you fly over jagged mountains, rich valleys and colossal glaciers. Your destination is the frozen landscape of one of Alaska’s great ice flows. Depending on weather and glacial conditions, you might land on the Chilkat, Ferebee or Meade Glacier. Upon touchdown, you’ll set out to explore an otherworldly realm. Alongside an expert naturalist, hike across the glacial surface and learn about these frozen bodies of ice that have remained in motion for eons. Few experiences equal that of standing upon one of nature’s most majestic wonders.
  • Enjoy a bird’s-eye view of Skagway as your pilot gently lifts off into the Alaskan sky.
  • Land atop one of Alaska’s great glaciers – Chilkat Glacier, Ferebee Glacier or Meade Glacier.
