Helicopter Icefield Excursion

First Time
August 30, 2022
First time in a helicopter and I was a little nervous. After the first minute into the flight, all nerves went out the window and it became an incredible experience. Landing on a glacier was amazing. Walking on ice that was thousands of years old was unbelievable. We highly recommend this tour. Suggest is to bring an empty water bottle so that you can get a drink of glacier water.

Ice fields in July
July 26, 2022
Most of your time is spent preparing to board the helicopter with a short safety video, instructions on how to board, etc. We were super excited to sit up front with our young pilot. She didn't say much during the flight as the motor and propeller was quite loud. The Glacier is amazing! Brilliant blue water is seen in small crevices and deep holes. You walk around for a bit, with care, as it's slick, even with the slip on ice shoes which are provided. It was very cold, even with the many layers I wore. I returned to the helicopter to sit inside and the pilot came unglued that I opened the door by myself, chastising me about how expensive doors are, were I to break it. She was a good pilot, but zero personality or people skills. The short flight back was unnarrated and the scenery is beautiful!

What an awesome experience! Our pilot Star (yep, that's his name) was amazing! The weather was great, we got to visit a glacier that was "less travelled". Star took his time with the flight, he was knowledgeable and the ride was so smooth. If you have the opportunity, take the time, take the chance and just do it! Once in a lifetime opportunity!

We have been on several cruises and many shore excursions. This excursion is by far the most memorable for our family of five. Everything was professionally handled from preparation, to the helicopter ride, to being out on the glacier. It takes a lot to wow our 15, 12, and 10 year old boys. And they were in awe of God's amazing creation out on the glacier. Thank you for the amazing day!

We initially booked the mushing excursion, but due to weather and circumstances beyond shore excursions control, it had to be cancelled. To say we were disappointed was an understatement, but we were assured that the ice field excursion was amazing. They were right! The helicopter ride itself was exhilarating, and once on the ice field, it's like time stood still. The sky was clear and the ice glistened in the sun. We brought water bottles and scooped up the clean, fresh, delicious glacier water. Talk about bottled at the source. We were in awe and would do it all again!

We were originally scheduled to do a Glacier Dog Sledding experience, but because of bad weather, it had to be canceled.

It was a unique and fun experience to be able to fly over the glacier and to actually walk on the glacier! The views were awesome and we got some pretty cool pictures! Our guide was very friendly and helpful. We highly recommend this experience! They provide ice boots that slide over your boots to help you walk. It was pretty cold, so we were bundled up in hats, gloves, scarfs and jacket. I do wish they provided ice walking sticks to help with walking on the glacier.... might be a good idea to bring a collapsible one if you want.

We were SO looking forward to the helicopter glacier excursion and dog sled experience. When we got there we found that due to inclement weather, we could only do the helicopter glacier portion, which was wonderful. View on the ride was amazing as was walking on the glacier itself. Too much fog and rain to safely take on the sledding. Apparently this happens quite often according to staff we spoke with at the helicopter airfield. Just don't get your heart set on this as Mother Nature plays a role. Great staff and experience overall!

We booked a shore excursion to visit a glacier through our travel agent. Wow, what a great company.

Evan took us out to a glacier and took a bunch of pictures and made great recommendations for more. With the exception of those we shared our helicopter with, we were all alone on the glacier, with fantastic views. I don't know how they priced out compared to other tour companies in the area, but these folks are top notch, and I wouldn't book with anyone else should we return. I had put off helicopter tours in the past due to the cost, but my wife and both agreed it was worth every penny. Great experience with great people.

Our pilot exceeded our expectations with a great narration of the terrain as we went past our intended location, over the next ridge and to the next Glacier. He gave us a great tour over the glacier and to the top of the ridge where the glacier originated. He then took us to the lower edge of the glacier where we had an amazing view of the wall of brilliant blue ice. We landed up the glacier on an even more vibrant blue patch of the glacier where we spent over 20 minutes walking on and drinking the amazing water from the glacier.

Great View and Experience
July 01, 2011
Our pilot was very qualified and personable. The view was wonderful as you climb above the mountain and see the glaciers and then experience walking on them. Wonderful experience even for people who have reservations about riding in a helicopter. The only disappointing item was the back seat with 4 people average size makes tight quarters especially to take pictures from the side windows. The view was was still wonderful but cameras were more difficult to maneuver. I certainly would do this again.

Such a unique experience. The top of the glacier was fascinating. I had never flown in a helicopter before, but I am so glad I took this ride! The highlight of a wonderful cruise to Alaska!
