Owner description: Don't miss the trip of a lifetime! The most beautiful flying in all of Alaska is HERE in the world famous Chugach Mountains and Prince William Sound. Experience walking on a glacier...drink the water, see your reflexion in a crystal clear blue pool of glacier water! See the majestic Columbia Glacier up close. See huge pieces of ice calve off into the ocean and hear the thunderous roar. Walk amongst the massive icebergs that get trapped on the shore as the ocean tide goes out. This is a MUST DO in Alaska!!! It's like having your very own National Geographic experience...in person! An experience to remember for a lifetime! If you are planning a flight seeing tour in Alaska, THIS is the one to do!!! We have the longest tours for the best prices in all of Alaska and the scenery is absolutely breath taking. Read what our guests are saying about us! We look forward to creating a magical experience for you...one that you will be talking about for years to come.

This is the very best way to see Valdez!! On our trip the weather was fabulous, and it made for a truly unique experience! We got to tour the Glaciers and take a spectacular flight around Valdez! Our pilot Douglas was really awesome and is an exceptional pilot! The helicopter felt very safe and I would recommend that everyone take a flight with Vertical Solutions!

Wowza...this heli-tour is the best!'
Pilot Lea took us on the best adventure today.I think that this heli-adventure should be on everyone's "bucket-list".
Columbia Glacier was really flashing her ice today and the scenery was stellar.
Lea is very knowledgable of all things Glacier, animals,and history.
If you can do one thing in Valdez, this trip should be it!!

Thank you so much for your great review! I'm so glad you enjoyed your trip to Columbia Glacier! I try to explain to folks how awe inspiring it is to see up close and I love your term "flashing her ice today!" We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience, thanks again!
