What To Expect

Shuttle service available from Anchorage and Girdwood hotels and B&Bs. If you’re driving, park your vehicle at our hangar at the Girdwood Airport. We ask all guests to arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled flight time for a short safety briefing. Then, you’ll be ready for your 90-minute scenic flight with an unforgettable glacier landing and return over Prince William Sound. The majestic beauty of the Sound makes this is our most special tour.

As you ascend above beautiful Girdwood Valley, the scenery begins. Crest over mountain peaks into the Chugach backcountry where you will explore the most spectacular glaciers of the region. We land on Colony or Surprise Glacier for a chance to exit the helicopter and venture onto the ice for 15-20 minutes. On your extended return flight, you’ll behold the Prince William Sound, one of the most breathtakingly beautiful and pristine areas in Alaska. Your pilot will take you near the face of a giant tide-water glacier, something only a helicopter can do, for a once-in-a-lifetime view. You may even catch sight of it calving.

You’ll have a great view from every seat, so sit back and relax as you enjoy the incredible scenery. Your professional pilot will provide knowledgeable commentary during your journey. After the completion of your flight, our courtesy van will be waiting for a complimentary transfer to your destination in Girdwood.

“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.”
