Start with a Scenic Helicopter Flight

Your 4-hour adventure begins by getting outfitted with a dry suit, and then lifting off in a helicopter. Look down on the Alaskan wilderness as you enjoy a scenic, 15-minute flight on your way to landing on a remote part of the glacier.

Bright Blue Glacier Pools

There, you’ll get some instruction, including a few jumps into the glacial lake to get used to the feeling of the dry suit and flotation device, and how to get in and out of the water in case you lose your balance on the paddleboard. Then you’ll be ready to set off on a serene paddle across crystal-clear water to the end of the lake and back. No experience is necessary, but it’s recommended you know how to swim.

After your paddle, enjoy the included box lunch of a sandwich, chips, fruit, cookie, and a beverage before boarding the helicopter for the scenic return trip, with memories of an unforgettable outing!
