Helicopter Ice Hiking

Intimate and remote helicopter access to a secluded glacial environment for a private guided ice hiking tour. This is the most affordable, yet most private helicopter glacier hike in Alaska!

A 3-hour adventure of a lifetime awaits on this spectacular helicopter fly-in glacier tour in Seward, Alaska. Flying out of the Seward Airport, the helicopter trip takes you soaring over rugged mountain peaks to a remote glaciated valley.  

Dramatically flowing out of an isolated alpine ice field, our destination just south of Godwin glacier presents some of the most exciting glacier hiking in the state.  

Our helicopter lands right at the glacier where you will be outfitted with crampons, helmets and ice axes. Your guide will then instruct you on how to safely travel on the glacier and then you’re off to explore an ancient frozen river. Spending approximately 2 hours on the ice with your guide, we will explore the fascinating terrain and features of the glacier on this tour: moulins, crevasses, massive waterfalls and rivers of melt water on top of the ice.  

This tour's difficulty is highly customizable for each group of clients. We have a lot of terrain available for trekking, so the guides can cater to how much or how little you want to travel around on the glacier in the time available. 

When the helicopter returns, you have the option of a customized flight seeing tour of your choosing. Soar through huge icebergs in a glacial lagoon, fly over one North America’s largest Icefields, and/or explore the stark mountainous topography carved from the last ice age surrounding Seward.
 
Permitted with the Chugach National Forest.
 
Season:  May 25th-ish through September 8th
