We only took the half hour helicopter tour, but it was absolutely awesome! We got to see moose and some spectacular glacier scenery. And since it was a helicopter, our pilot was able to really maneuver in to get great closeup views of everything. Well worth the price, fantastic experience!

Our 90-minute helicopter ride was by far the BEST experience of our entire life! Had a delay due to weather, but as the saying goes... good things come to those who wait! Seeing wild animals in their natural habitat by air (Moose, Mountain Goat, Black Bear) is incredible. We landed on the Colony Glacier and collected/drank pure glacier water. We... More

We thought of taking a plane tour to the glaciers, but after reading many reviews, decided on the helicopter tour with Alpine Air in Girdwood. It might seem pricier at first, but the experiences are incomparable. The helix flies quite low at times, to show close up views. The close up views of the ice formations and the wildlife are...

When we booked the dog mushing excursion we were hoping to have a good experience. Well our expectations were met and went beyond what we could have ever imagined. Starting with the helicopter ride to the Punch Bowl Glacier we were treated to blue skies and amazing scenery, especially when we came around the mountain ridge and saw the glacier!... More

This is one of the second times I've been up close to a glacier (glacier national park). This being said I've never touched one! Quite the experience, I've never seen such natural beauty. There are wonderful textures I've only seen in pictures. Our pilot Turner knew all his stuff history, animals, names of everything. The staff in the office are... More

This helicopter tour was an incredible way to see Alaska. Not only were the views outstanding the staff were fabulous. I highly recommend spending the money and going on one of these flights. It truly was the best day ever!

We flew into Anchorage on 8/20/14 and stopped at Alpine Air on the spur of the moment on our way to Seward on 8/21/14. It was a gloriously sunny day with only a few clouds and we figured we ought to take advantage of the beautiful weather. We booked a trip to fly up and land on a glacier. Jared,... More

I don't even know where to begin....This was the most incredible experience we had in the trip of a lifetime to Alaska. We booked our glacier dog sledding experience nearly a year in advance for July 6, 2014. We were staying in Anchorage for 5 days doing day trips on our own before our 11 day Double Denali Land/Cruise package... More

Had a chance to take the Alpine Air Alaska flight seeing tour this Summer in August (2104) and I can't say enough good things about it! The scenery was truly awe inspiring and having the chance to see the glaciers from this perspective was amazing and only to be topped by actually landing on a glacier and having a chance... More
