A great once in a lifetime type experience! It appears weather is always iffy and we knew from the time of booking that safety was always the #1 priority as they don't fly if not completely safe. But the weather held long enough for us...More

Everything about this excursion was just wonderful, from the pickup at the hotel, transfer to their base, helpfulness of their friendly employees, safety, etc! The helicopter ride to Yannert Glacier and the uniqueness of standing on a glacier in the middle of nowhere was an...More

This was such a waste of money and time. The pilot hardly spoke of anything while we were in the helicopter. We thought we were going to Mt. McKinley and barely got close to it. He couldn't find any wildlife either. Don't waste your money...More

We are an elderly couple and booked a glacier landing excursion. Everything done as expected or promised. Pickup from hotel, the pre-flight, and the helicopter ride. All the staff and pilot, Katie, were nice, kind and informative. They helped us get over our difficulties getting...More

We booked and paid for the heli-hiking tour a few months ago. Flew to Alaska from Texas for a trip to Denali with this heli-hiking tour being the highlight of the trip. I have lived in Alaska in the past and always had positive experiences...More

Very well organised, friendly, helpful, competent. The helicopter was an AS350 turbine in good condition. The glacier trip was brilliant- scenery in flight and on the ground was wonderful. Expensive but well worth it.

This would fall under "once in a lifetime experiences!" Everything about our trip was amazing. The staff that checked you in were friendly and helpful. Our pilot (Eric maybe?) was very nice, calm and professional. One person with us was very nervous about the flight...More
