This helicopter run and walking on the glacier excursion was fantastic! We were in the helicopter for over 20 minutes and saw breathtaking views to get to the Mead Glacier. Once we landed, we hiked on the glacier with our cleated boots and hiking poles to ensure steadiness. The glacier was amazing! We saw many features, streams, holes, and the brilliant blue within the glacier. The tour guide was very informative and interesting. This operation was very professional and well worth the expense!

Terrific trip! The helicopter ride was smooth and the pilot was very informative and friendly. We walked around on the glacier and that guide was also very friendly and informative! I highly recommend this trip!

You will not have seen Alaska unless you take this tour / excursion to the top of a glacier where you get to walk around. A phenomenal experience that will bring back all the school lessons that covered glaciers, erosion, weather and climate changes. Guaranteed satisfaction.

The helicopter ride was great. Apparently we saw some things that our pilot said are typically difficult to see because of weather conditions. the weather was perfect that day. The landing on the glacier could have been longer. It was great and went very fast.
