  1. 5 out of 5

    Absolutely amazing!My husband and I booked this excursion in Skagway. It was our first helicopter tour and the experience couldn’t have been more perfect! The team in Skagway were so friendly and professional, always willing to assist wherever needed, and our pilot Kyle was extremely nice. The scenery while flying was breathtaking and the exploration of the glacier was something we’ll never forget. I highly recommend this tour!

    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.

    What if my tour group is larger than 6 people?

    Answer: There are several helicopters available at the base and can make accommodations for larger groups with advance notice. If your group exceeds 6 passengers and requires the use of multiple aircraft, we instruct the pilots to coordinate landing locations on the glacier so that you can have your landing time together.

    Will we see wildlife on the tour?

    Answer: There is a good chance wildlife will be seen during your tour, either in flight or while on the glacier. However, this is not a wildlife viewing tour and we cannot guarantee you will see wildlife.

    Can children come on the tour?

    Answer: Absolutely! We are more than happy to accommodate children of all ages. Lap children 2 and under fly for free!

    What happens if the weather is too bad to fly?

    Answer: 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 to a later time of day that works for you. If you choose not to reschedule or we can’t find a time that works for you, our refund policy clearly states that refunds due to weather canceled flights are refunded in full.

    What if I need extra help on the tour?

    Answer: This tour does require a moderate level of fitness in order to load/unload the helicopter and navigate on icy/uneven terrain. Please contact one of our agents if you have further questions about the ability level required for this tour.
