Overview

A one-of-a-kind Alaskan experience that should not be missed, this 45-minute helicopter flight from Seward takes you to Bear and Aialik glaciers.

Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Check in at the airfield in Seward, where you will undergo a safety briefing with your pilot. Expect personalized service on this flight that carries no more than six passengers. Don your headset, which allows you to hear your pilot more clearly.

 

Then take to the skies and fly out to Resurrection Bay. As the forest recedes, a snowy landscape appears as you soar toward the water and fjords along the coastline. Your pilot circles the area so that you can take pictures of the stunning bay.

 

Admire Bear Glacier, largest glacier from the Harding Ice Field, and Aialik Glacier, the sheer walls of which drop into the ocean.  

 

During the return flight, soak up aerial views of the Kenai Fjords National Park and surrounding countryside.

Absolutely fabulous. Cody our pilot was exceptionally knowledgeable and made the trip truly rewarding. Mountainous terrain was certainly expected but bear, bald eagle sightings while great were no comparison to the ice field/ glacier flyover. Incredible
