Alpine Air Alaska
Traveling to Alaska is more than a vacation; it’s an emotional journey into untouched natural beauty and wild places that will stay with you forever. If you’re planning a once-in-a-lifetime visit, a tour from the air is essential in order to fully appreciate the size and scale of Alaska’s terrain. On a helicopter tour, you’ll see more in one hour than you could for days on a ground tour. A helicopter also allows you to fly lower and hover for great views, and land virtually anywhere, unlike a fixed-wing airplane.
Leave civilization behind and get a taste of Alaska’s glaciers and rugged peaks. Look for wildlife along the steep mountainsides. A scenic helicopter tour with Alpine Air Alaska is a highlight of any Alaska vacation. Trusted since 1991, they are the longest serving helicopter operator in Southcentral Alaska, operating award-winning flightseeing tours and making adventure accessible to all ages year-round. Whether you’re a traveler seeking an exciting Alaska adventure, a luxury experience, or a once-in-a-lifetime family memory, a helicopter tour offers something for everyone. From the comfort of a helicopter, you’ll explore breathtaking glaciers deep in the rugged Alaskan backcountry up close in the most heavily glaciated region of North America.
Select a flight that includes a glacier landing for an experience of a lifetime. By special permit, your pilot will touch down on glacier and you will have the opportunity to exit the helicopter and experience the vast snow-capped beauty of the Chugach Mountains. You will always remember the sights of blue glacier pools and the feeling of walking on the blue glacier ice. Photographers will want to add a tour of the majestic Prince William Sound to their itinerary for incredible photo opportunities of massive tidewater glaciers and sparkling water of the Sound.
If the thrill of dog sledding is on your family’s bucket list, a helicopter glacier dog-sledding tour is a must-do. In summer, a quick helicopter flight to a glacier will have you dog sledding on the snow with real Alaskan Iditarod mushers – truly unforgettable. Tours depart daily from Girdwood, a beautiful mountain resort town just south of Anchorage. Picture yourself soaring over Girdwood Valley’s snow-capped peaks into the heart of glacier country. Now imagine stepping out of the helicopter onto a giant snowfield, surrounded by towering mountains and pristine wilderness – that’s where you’ll begin your dog-sledding adventure. You will be greeted by the mushers and introduced to the team of friendly Alaskan huskies. These playful pups love to run and will pull you along on a sled as you take in the incredible views of glaciers and mountains. You can experience firsthand what it’s like to mush your own dog team or sit back and relax while someone else does all the work. Either way, you’re in for an unforgettable time.

We had flexibility with our amazing pilot to land twice in our 90 minutes. She was so educating! The views are more than we ever imagined.” ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ - Google Review, Autumn 2022
