Flying high above wetland habitat, Alpine ridges and lush rainforests, you'll gain new appreciation for this rugged land as your pilot shares a lively narrative. As you approach the Icefield and its many glaciers, you'll marvel at the twisted spires, deep blue crevasses and carved peaks that make up this ancient landscape. Soaring even higher, you may pass the Mendenhall Towers - jagged rock sentinels that climb more than 7,000 feet - and the spectacular icefalls that overflow to form the Mendenhall Glacier. View icefalls, spires, and the many hanging glaciers suspended on the surrounding mountainsides before a gentle landing on this slowly moving river of ice and explore the glaciers' surface with your expert glacier guide. See and understand how glaciers form, flow and carve out the landscape. Enjoy complimentary beverages when you return to the helicopter base and discuss this inspirational experience. Note: Flight time is approximately 30 minutes, with an approximately 20-25 minute landing on the glacier. This tour operates under a special use permit issued by the U.S. Forest Service.
