There are few things more spectacular than lifting off in a helicopter and soaring into Alaska's glacier-filled terrain or out over its shimmering waters. This Girdwood-based tour company offers helicopter flightseeing and dog-mushing tours. Board one if its Robinson R44 Raven I and Raven II helicopters—the leader in civilian helicopters— and you can gets birds-eye views of the Chugach Mountains, glaciers and Prince Williams Sounds. Unlike a lot of tour operators, their flightseeing tours are a year-round option: its summer tours depart six times daily, and its fall and winter tours depart 5 times daily, the latter featuring glacier landings on frozen lakes. They provide free pick-up service within the Girdwood area, including The Hotel Alyeska. Their tours include:
From Anchorage: Head south out of Anchorage on the Seward Highway. Turn left onto Alyeska Highway and follow it into Girdwood to Donner Road, which is about 2.3 miles from the turnoff with the Seward Highway. Follow the signs for the airport (left on Davos and right on Mt. Hood). Alpine Air is the last hangar on the airport road.
