“It was an amazing once-in-a-lifetime experience. The views from the Helicopters were spectacular. The landing and walking around on the glacier was unforgettable. The pilots did an excellent job of pointing out the wildlife and sights. We have pictures and memories as a family that we will look at and talk about for the rest of our life.“

“My husband and I flew with Alpine Air up to Punch Bowl Glacier for a once-in-a-lifetime dog sled experience… If you want a chance to experience some breathtaking views, meet some awesome dogs, and see what it feels like to really be up in the mountains, this IS for you! You won’t experience a smoother ride or a more friendly group of people!”

“The scenery and skies were amazing and constantly changing. We landed on a glacier and it was snowing lightly. We drank from a melted glacial pool and it was delicious. Once in a lifetime opportunity with incredible photo ops as well. We think of this experience every weekend when we enjoy our coffee in the Alpine Air Alaska mugs.”
