Grand Knik Helicopter Tour

Grand Knik Helicopter Tour

Departs from Knik RIver Lodge


$824 pp


Fly by helicopter to Lake George Glacier over what we call “Moose Meadows,” a dense valley floor area where wildlife is frequently spotted. As the helicopter descends, you’ll realize the scale of the glacier in front of you; everything out here is XXL size!

The ice wall is over 100ft tall! You will have a half hour to explore and take in the massive size of the ice and take pictures. For your second landing, you will fly high above to an alpine meadow where you will have a unique birds eye view of the massive Knik Glacier below, with Colony and Cataract Glaciers across Lake George.

There is a good chance we’ll see bears foraging along the hillsides during the flight. We almost always see moose and Dall sheep. Finally, your grand adventure has you flying to the middle of the Knik Glacier for a third landing at the azure colored melt pools.

See the deep blue ice, and learn about the life cycle of glaciers and why they are so important to human life across the globe. You will have another half hour to safely explore the glacier with your experienced pilot / guide.

* Tours departing from the Knik River Valley base have transfers available from selected Anchorage locations for an additional fee, round trip at 78$ per person – NOT INCLUDED IN THE ABOVE PRICE
