My wife I just returned from our two week trip to Alaska, which was both via land and cruise ship. We went on many excursions while there and none were better that Alpine Air Alaska.
First and foremost, the staff at both the ground site and atop the glacier are top class. Professional, experts in their field, energetic, passionate, and most importantly, just cool people.
We were picked up timely from our hotel, taken to the hanger, given instructions, suited up, and away we went.
I won't give too many details as it is something THAT NEEDS TO BE EXPERIENCED, but it was awesome. The helicopter ride up through the majestic mountains, the awesome view, and landing on a glacier were awesome.
Peter and his staff were great, but the dogs were better and the clear stars of the excursion. The two mile ride was truly an experience.
I cannot say enough good things about this entire experience. I have told everyone about it and will be adding pictures soon.
One last thing, send pizza to the team atop the glacier. I did and I can only assume they truly appreciated it. It was the least I could do in return for a truly unforgettable experience of a lifetime.
