Did the 'Ride the Goat' Tour. Very exciting with wildlife (bear, eagle, goat, etc) and wilderness scenery, including a breathtaking 'dive' down a waterfall. Not to be missed! A great companion to a glacier landing!

Our pilot and the entire crew was just amazing. We loved the whole experience. My friend got a little nauseous and he set up down as quickly as possible so she could get some fresh air. The views were awesome, so glad we did this.

At very short notice we were taken on an amazing trip and even landed at a remote venue where we saw a bear. Ryan went way and beyond the call of duty.
