Full description

Feed your adventurous heart on this round-trip helicopter ride and hiking tour from Anchorage. Explore the lush Alaskan wilds from the sky and on land, including the Chugach Range, Knik Glacier, Lake George, and more. Enjoy a flexible trip that can be customized to your interests.

Start your trip by considering the best location for your hike and the itinerary with your guide. There are dozens of incredible high-alpine locations that are ideally suited for heli-hiking. Your guide will be there to help satisfy your interests.

After deciding on your ideal hiking experience, you’ll board the helicopter and be whisked to the location. Upon arrival, your guide will help you out of the helicopter, which will then zip back to the lodge.

Complete silence will quickly surround you. From here, take in the one-of-a-kind scenery and go explore with your guide. You’ll be traveling in a group size that ensures an optimum wilderness experience with a minimized human impact.

This tour is all about you, so ask when you would like to stop, take a break, snap some pictures, or run up the ridge to see what is back there ─ more mountains and glaciers, but go for it.

Your guide will be perfectly happy taking it easy and waiting with you for the perfect light, that cloud to move into position, or for wildlife to get just a bit closer, all while looking out for your safety.

At the end of your adventure on land, you’ll return round-trip to the take-off location.
