Do you want to maximize your time exploring the Matanuska Glacier? The Helicopter Explorer tour allows you to experience our Advanced Trek without having to hike 2 miles on the moraine. Tour guests can expect to spend up to 3 hours on the white ice, utilizing ropes to scramble up walls, hike beside crevasses, and enjoy the beauty of moulins and blue pools. One of our highly trained guides will help you experience the most the glacier has to offer!
This tour requires a minimum of 2 paying guests to fly.
Due to the seat configuration of the helicopter, if you have three people in your group you must book for 4 guests.
