    How is transportation arranged?

    Answer: You can drive yourself to the Knik River Lodge helicopter base which is about 1-hour northeast of Anchorage. Alternatively, you can add a roundtrip transfer shuttle to your booking. The 10:15 am and 4:30 pm departures have scheduled transfers from most major hotels in Anchorage as well as the log cabin visitor center on 4th Avenue in downtown. If choosing either the 10:15 am or 4:30 pm tour times, you'll purchase the $59 'transfer shuttle' option. For any other tour time, you'll need to purchase the $98 'Custom Transfer'. As always, detailed instructions are provided in your confirmation email and voucher.

    Will there be snow at the dog camp?

    Answer: Yes! The dog camp is located high on the glacier on a huge snowfield. Our dog sleds are similar to any you might see in professional competition and require a certain amount of snow in order to operate.

    How long is the flight and sled ride?

    Answer: The total flight time is 40 minutes and you'll be at the dog camp for one hour. The sled dog ride is 2-miles with chances to stop for photos. You'll have 30 minutes at the lower glacier.

    Will I get to stand and mush the dogsled team?

    Answer: Yes! You can stand on the runners and mush your own dog team if you want, or just sit on the sled and let the mushers run the team.

    What type of helicopter will I be in?

    Answer: We fly Robinson 44s and ASTAR helicopters. We can't guarantee the type of helicopter you will be flying in, however if requested we will do our best to accommodate your request. Parties of more than 3 guests may be in 2 helicopters, but will always be together for the tour. In all our years of flying, we maintain a perfect safety record and are meticulous about maintenance and safety. Helicopters are FAA inspected, certified, and fully insured. Flying with us is very safe.

    How many passengers per helicopter?

    Answer: Each helicopter can seat up to 6 passengers, provided the weight and balance calculations work out in each aircraft. Please contact us if you are interested in booking a party larger than 6 people.

    Will we see wildlife on the tour?

    Answer: While we can never guarantee wildlife sightings, chances are excellent on this tour! We often see moose, bear, mountain goats, and Dall sheep.

    What if I need extra help on the tour?

    Answer: Please contact us for wheelchair or limited mobility access so that we can discuss your needs. We especially enjoy taking people out that think they can't do anything like this!

    Is the morning or afternoon tour better?

    Answer: It's really your preference that matters most here. Typically, the mornings have slightly less wind. The afternoon temperatures tend to be a bit higher.

    What should I wear?

    Answer: The temperature on the glacier is often colder than you may be used to. Layered clothing is the key to comfort. Wear a long sleeved shirt, sweater, and ideally a waterproof jacket. It is a good idea to bring gloves, a hat, and sunglasses. Wear sneakers, no high-heeled shoes or sandals. We outfit you with overboots and crampons that will allow you to walk safely on the glaciers. These go on over your shoes and fit best with sneakers. Don’t forget a camera that is ready for lots of pictures!

    What happens if the weather is too bad to fly?

    Answer: The Knik Valley sees more sunshine and less rain than other popular flightseeing areas. However, we do have bad weather days and there is no way to tell far ahead of time when that is going to be. If the weather is just not cooperating and the pilots determine that it’s too bad to fly, we’ll do our best to reschedule you. If you choose not to reschedule or we can’t find a time that works for you, we will refund you.
