The Alaska Trifecta! Glaciers, icebergs, and amazing alpine views. Three remote landings in one phenomenal tour. If you only have one day in Alaska, this is a tour you should consider.

Grand Knik Tour

Experiencing the stunning beauty of this area of Alaska by combining three activities is truly an amazing experience. Fly via helicopter past the scenic Lake George. As the helicopter flies up what we call moose meadow, keep your eyes peeled for moose in the valley below. As you descend you’ll realize just how massive the glacier is when the ice wall comes into view.  You will have a half-hour to explore 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. Additionally, one can take in views of Colony and Cataract glacier across Lake George. There is a good chance we’ll see bears, moose, and Dall sheep along the hillsides during the flight.

Finally, your grand adventure has you flying to the middle of the Knik Glacier for a third landing at the azure-colored melt pools. Observe the deep blue ice while learning about the life cycle of glaciers. You will have another half hour to safely explore the glacier with your experienced pilot/guide. Don’t forget your water bottle so you can fill it up with that crystal clear glacier water! An adventure you will be telling friends and family about for years to come!
