This was my first helicopter ride (US Navy vet) and I was not too thrilled but I did it anyway. Well, I have to tell you, the staff was so professional and the pilot was so skilled and the scenery so stunning that I forgot that I was nervous. I would do this again in a heartbeat. Plus the dog... More

We arrived about 30 mins before a snow shower hits the area. Our flight took off earlier so that we could catch some beautiful sceneries before they were blanketed white. Our pilot, Martin, was flying low for us to spot the animals and we saw a brown bear amongst herds of moose and caribou. Amazing. Although we didn't make it... More

We did a boat trip to glaciers, a train and hike to glaciers, BUT the helicopter trip to a glacier WAS THE BEST! We did the 90 minute trip from Girdwood and our pilot was extremely knowledgeable. We saw a bear roaming around and great scenery everywhere. The ride was so comfortable but the experience was totally new to us... More

Alpine Air was a great experience. People, service, the ride ... Great. Worth the money to do the 90 minute option.

Expensive, but completely worth it. Great pilot, great aircraft, great staff, incredible experience. I can't think of a negative thing to say.

This was our last tour of our 14 day vacation in Alaska. We almost cxl the sightseeing flight b/c we felt we had already done too many glacier or flight seeing activities. We are very happy we didn't!! We saw more wildlife in this tour than in any other! The pilot dedicated so much time and effort to find wildlife....... More

Best activity in Alaska by far. This is worth the trip in itself. Helicopter tour to the glacier on and off, then dog sledding! #bucketlist. Very knowledgable staff and dogman was awesome sorry I don't remember his name. The girls at the counter were very friendly, professional, helpful, and easy on the eyes / hot.

This is seriously the best excursion I have ever been on! We took the dog sledding "mushing" tour on Punchbowl Glacier and can't say enough nice things about the office staff and the mushers on the glacier. We were reluctant because of the price, but it was worth every penny. From the time we arrived until we left, it was... More

Our helicopter ride to land on the glacier was incredible - and this from someone who doesn't like heights! But everyone at Alaska Air, from the staff in the office to our two pilots, Rob and Martin, went out of their way to make us feel comfortable (ok, they just had to coddle me, the only scaredy cat!) The flight... More
