Alpine Backcountry Helicopter Hiking

A full day of hiking in a remote area with views of glaciers, oceans, and islands from a perch high up in the peaks.

This guided alpine hike takes you to a place that few people have ever been to.  Our Alpine Helicopter Hiking trip is for those looking to explore a pristine environment and hike in a secluded high alpine region surrounded by glaciated peaks, waterfalls, wildflowers and views to the Resurrection Bay from above.  There are no trails, and your guide will tailor the hiking to whatever your hiking interests are.  Your experienced guide will teach you about the local geology, biology and cultural history as you explore the alpine tundra. The options are almost limitless and wherever you decide to go, the alpine environment will provide a uniquely Alaskan alpine experience.
The helicopter leaves from Seward's local airport, and the flight to our hiking destination is spectacular as well.  After flying over Resurrection Bay and up a canyon filled with countless waterfalls, you will land right in the middle of our alpine playground.  
 
This tour provides hikers with 6 hours within the beautiful alpine environment - more than enough time to immerse one's self in this uncommon and untouched place. This trip is awesome. We cannot overstate the beauty of the area in which this tour operates — this is one of our favorite trips to run!
