I arrived in Anchorage a day early for a business trip, during the "in between" season on November 1. Summer was over and the winter season hasn't begun. I wondered if I might arrange a "flightseeing" tour for myself over the amazing natural scenery near the Alaskan capital. I called five air touring companies Saturday morning. Two phoned back, and...

Totally by coincidence we ended up at the door of Trail Ridge Air. We'd been looking for a reasonably priced flightseeing adventure, but were unimpressed with advertised prices we found via Google, starting at $210 per person for an hour. So we drove out to Hood Lake on a Friday afternoon to see what we could see. Driving around the... More

This summer my son (10 yrs old) and I took a fly in pike fishing trip. I live in Alaska and had heard from friends that Trail Ridge was the way to go so I booked with them. I have flown with a lot of Alaska air carriers for work and pleasure and can say that Trail Ridge is a... More

From the first email contact many months in advance, the people at Trail Ridge Air were very helpful, knowledgeable and professional. We wanted to do a week-long lake-to-lake backpacking trip in the Kenai peninsula and they helped us finalize our plans and gave some great tips for how to best prepare. The booking process was easy, and we didn't have... More

Booked Trail Ridge Air to provide transportation to Lake Clark NP for 2 groups of 5 backpackers on back-to back treks. From the first contact Jim was so easy to work with, taking 10 separate credit cards for the charter, helping answer questions about our route, river crossings, etc. When we arrived for our flight we received such great attention...

We booked Trail Ridge Air for our day trip to Redoubt Mountain Lodge. This looked like a very professional outfit who have been in the business for many years. They recommended the Redoubt trip as our best option to see bears and they were spot on. See my separate review of Redoubt Mountain Lodge. The flight was great. While the... More

My husband and I booked a flight seeing trip with Trail Ridge last minute and had a great time. We were in a tiny airplane, but had it all to ourselves! Dan, the pilot, was awesome and was very engaging throughout the trip. We went high into the hills and landed on a glacial lake. They provided snacks and water,... More

Professional. Friendly. Informative. Helpful. I can't recommend them high enough!! We felt safe and secure as we were escorted to Northwoods Lodge to begin a weekend in Heaven. Top-notch service. Hope to need you again next year!

I was on the flight with Sharon (who gave the below bad rating). The weather did deteriorate after take-off, but the pilot (Dan) did a very good job of keeping us safe, and in no way did ANYTHING wrong. Sharon did NOT deserve a refund! When you fly into the bush, you accept the possibility of rough flying weather.

Booked a float plane fishing trip in February to celebrate my son's university graduation. Called one week before to tell me that there was an emergency order by Alaska Fish & Game that their was no retention. Too late for me to reschedule, so we kept booking. Fished the day before the float trip and was told that there was... More
