Helicopter Explorer

Take in sprawling views of the Matanuska Valley from the sky and land into adventure on this helicopter exploration. From the passenger seat you will be able to take in hallmark views of Alaska and save energy for your adventure on the glacier’s ice. This helicopter adventure brings you directly to the best and most remote locations on the Matanuska Glacier.

Local Expertise

With a little guidance from the professionals at MICA Guides and a VIP welcome to their base you are one step closer to a full experience with one of Alaska’s glaciers. The day starts getting geared up with your guides in Glacier View. Next, you’re off to be escorted to your window seat in the helicopter.

After a quick flight over some of the most breath taking scenery your pilot will gently swoop into some of the best features on the glacier. Once on the ice you will be able to enjoy an advanced trek with your glacier guides. This experience is great for those looking to have a little more adventurous time on the ice.

On an advanced trek your guides will be using rope systems to bring you into moulins, look over crevasses, and create epic photo opportunities. Bringing you to the remote areas of the glacier means getting to experience some of these guides favorite locations. Additionally, the backcountry of the glacier provides some of the best lunch spots around.

After 3 hours on the ice you will be ready to sit back and relax in the helicopter. As you fly back to base you can enjoy your views of all the miles of moraine hiking you cut off from taking a helicopter adventure. The helicopter explorer tour saves you time and energy and makes the most of your experience on the ice.
