This is such a great opportunity to see the mountain range and get a feel for how gorgeous they can be. I would highly recommend. You can't fully grasp what it's like by just skiing in alyeska. You will see dozens of glaciers and natural wildlife. The flight was no hassle and very comfortable.

The day we flew in a tiny, four seat helicopter with Matt was MAGIC from start to finish ! We took off without fuss and were soon flying sometimes above & at others below the cloud, the length of a u-shaped valley - evidence that this is a valley scoured by ice over many thousands of year. The glacier landing... More

We signed up for the 60 min ride in late January on a Wednesday (2015). After the glacier landing, we decide to upgrade to the full 90 min Prince William Sound Tour. If you ever take a vacation in Alaska, this is a must. My personal favorite was the glacial landing. Coming from a New York City commuter, getting outside... More

This was a highlight of my family's visit to Alaska in August. The sightseeing trip was amazing. It seems to me that helicopter is the only way to start to fathom the immense beauty of Alaska, and I highly recommend doing it. The staff and pilots at Alpine Air Alaska are top notch and are wonderful to work with. I'm... More

On Weds. July 2, 2014 three of us took a helicopter ride up to Punchbowl Glacier for a dog-sledding ride! Without a doubt, it was the most wonderful day of our week's visit to the Anchorage area!!! The whole afternoon from 4-6:00 was a once-in-a-lifetime type incredible experience!! We LOVED flying up to the glacier, met Mitch Seavey accidentally who... More

I used them for business as opposed to pleasure but regardless they have very friendly staff and of course competent pilots. I spent a few days flying with them and had no issues at all.

This was an absolutely incredible experience, from the booking and great response time/attention to detail from Glenda, to the pick up from my hotel and to the touch down. The breathtaking mountains and glaciers are unforgettable...we planned for just the Glacier Landing, but ended up doing the Prince William Sound upgrade. It was well worth it and an adventure which... More

This was without a doubt the highlight of my 14 day trip through Alaska. Originally we had booked the dog sledding experience but due to weather that tour had to be cancelled. The staff of Alpine Air contacted us weeks in advance to offer us alternatives. We switched to the 90 minute ride that included a Glacier landing. The day... More
