We took a trip up to Knik Glacier and it was incredible!! Ben was our pilot and he was great about answering all our questions and leading us around different parts of the glacier to see different things. It was also fun that he helped call out animal sightings on the flight in and out.
We were a little worried about weather because it was pretty grey and a little rainy, but everything cleared up when we were on the glacier and it was perfect!
Definitely recommend this experience!

Riding on a helicopter to enjoy the beauty of glacier is one of the best experiences I ever have. It is much more astounding watching the glacier with an eagle wide angle. It is worth every dollar.

Our pilot is a very nice man. While he was flying the helicopter, he was also showing us the wild animals like moose bears… he also suggested how to take photos from a good angle.

I also asked for hotel pick up service. Kevin is a very nice and punctual driver. He picked me up at my hotel before the meet up time so that I could take some wonderful photos during the ride. He also introduced me nice places in Alaska. He took a very good care of me. Highly recommended.

We took Grand Knik Tour (2 hours) with Steven (pilot and guide). Using headset, he gave us good information and we could ask questions during the flight. When we landed, we were given plenty of time to explore and take pictures with some safety guidance and friendly conversations.

This is somewhat of weather depending activity and we were concerned about it, but we got really lucky and have a wonderful sunny day. It seems like though that this area is calm and predictable weather from what we heard from the people there and some other reading. It is about one hour plus easy driving from Anchorage.

It is certainly not a budget item, but it was all worth it!! I recommend that people take any of the tours including lading. Yes, looking at glaciers from above is very interesting in itself, but it is very hard to understand the size of them until you get to land.

There were two of us and another group of two (total of four passengers - seems like they can fit two more). Since we had four legs of flying with three stops, we rotated seating, but discovered all seats were very good. Between land staff members and the pilot, they made us feel safe and at ease.

Helicopter! Dogs! What more could you want? The helicopter ride and dog sledding combo was one of the coolest experiences I’ve ever had. The pilot was very professional and informative during our flight to the dog camp. He pointed out interesting things about the mountain range and glaciers as we flew, and I felt very confident in his ability to navigate the wind and terrain. Once we arrived at the dog camp, it felt like we had stepped into dog heaven. The dogs were incredibly excited and friendly, and we had a blast riding on the sled with our dog musher Gabby. We can’t wait to visit the dogs again!

We did the Grand Knik Tour out of Knik River Lodge in September and had an incredible flight experience. The entire ride is amazing and provides once in a lifetime views of natural scenery a camera just isn’t capable of depicting. It’s definitely a flight that’s worth every penny. The tundra foliage was a bright red on the mountain side that time of year and was a great contrast against the white snow. The blue of the glacier water and iceberg viewings in the lake made the landings awe inspiring.

Everything about this tour was top notch! We were picked up at our hotel in Anchorage and dropped off after the tour which made it very convenient. Our driver was very friendly and informative. The tour itself was wonderful and a must do experience when visiting Alaska. We were very pleased with our pilot and felt very much at ease during the flight. I highly recommend Alaska Helicopter Tours for your adventure!

AMAZING! A MUST DO if in Alaska! What an experience. We’ve done the glacier tour by boat before but this took it to a whole different level. To be able to see the glacier from above and land right on it was incrediable. Our guide Shad was a wealth of information and so helpful. We enjoyed it so much that we extended our tour to include a landing on a mountain top as well. Really a once in a lifetime experience I highly recommend putting on your bucket list.

No favorite part, because the whole experience was incredible. The 4:30pm time allowed us to add a 4th landing and was well worth it. Our pilot Shad a true professional with a bit of that back country edginess.

This tour was not only the highlight of our Alaska trip, but the highlight of our lives!! All three stops we made were breathtaking. Knik Glacier was something else. Steven, our pilot, was super knowledgeable and friendly and made the entire time even better than we imagined. You can trust him with your life! Even in strong winds! We got super lucky and had Christian, the company's photographer, with us during our tour and not only did he take great shots of us, he also shared his knowledge and experience throughout his years working in AK.
I think everyone needs to do this tour if they come to Anchorage. It's worth every single penny and it will make for the best memories.
We thought we would be really cold and brought so many layers, but we fortunately had a beautiful day and kept all of over layers in the helicopter! Steven was in a T-shirt even! Don't forget your cameras, sunglasses and sunscreen, though.
