Leave all traces of civilization behind and experience the infinite beauty of Alaska's remote glaciers.
Lift off by helicopter from the historic Skagway waterfront and head into a rugged region of sheer mountains, majestic valleys and massive glaciers. Jagged peaks towering over the Chilkat Glacier, cascading waterfalls surrounding the Ferebee Glacier, or the spectacular 'river of ice' known as the Meade Glacier may be among the wonders you encounter. Flight routes and landing zones are selected daily to ensure you receive the best the area offers.
Once you have reached your destination, you will have the rare opportunity to explore one of nature's greatest marvels. Enjoy the walking tour of a lifetime -- over the surface of the glacier -- as your guide answers all your questions and explains the tremendous forces at work.
This tour can be cancelled without penalty either on the day your voyage commences or up until 12 noon on Day 2 of your voyage. Cancellations thereafter are non-refundable. Tour operates rain or shine but may be canceled by the operator in the event of extremely bad weather or unsuitable conditions.
