Alaska Helicopter Tours

Quick and nimble in their ability to reach remote corners of the state, helicopters are a popular way to tour Alaska's otherwise unreachable locations. If you're looking for an excursion to top all others, consider a helicopter flightseeing adventure. Alaska Tour & Travel has several options available, often with a glacier landing, sled dog ride, or alpine hike added for even more thrills.

One of the most popular heli-tours is 40 minutes south of Anchorage in the small ski town of Girdwood. Here guests are whisked onto Punch Bowl Glacier for a Glacier Sled Dog tour featuring Alaska's canine athletes at their summer training camp location. After a short helicopter ride, you can experience the thrill of mushing behind a dog team in one of the most pristine places in the world. A similar trip can be accessed just north of Anchorage on the Knik Helicopter Glacier Sled Dog flight, which flies to Colony Glacier overlooking the scenic Knik River valley, and the Seward Helicopter Glacier Sled Dog tour to Fourth of July Glacier.

Interested in alpine hiking? Helicopters can touch down on rocky ridge lines with ease, allowing for access that normally would take days, or even weeks, to reach. The Knik Heli-Hiking Adventure is one option. It combines helicopter flightseeing with a backcountry hike in the Chugach Mountains.
