May 1 – October 15, 2017

Take a Knik Glacier tour and experience a glacier and wildlife adventure. Soar over towering Knik Glacier – the centerpiece of Lake George National Natural Landmark. At 25 miles long and 5 miles wide, Knik Glacier is one of Southcentral Alaska’s biggest and most spectacular glaciers and towers above Knik River Valley – an area rich in vegetation, fish and Alaska wildlife. On the north side of the Knik River, sunny, south-facing slopes are common lambing areas for Dall sheep. Moose are plentiful year round. Black and grizzly bear, wolf, coyote, fox, lynx, wolverine, snowshoe hare, American beaver, the Arctic ground squirrel and the occasional river otter may also be spotted.

On this hour you depart from the world’s busiest seaplane base for the expansive Knik Glacier, located 50 miles north of Anchorage, Alaska. You may also fly over Colony Glacier to Lake George, which spills into the winding Knik Glacier Gorge. Included is a lake landing for photos.

Highlights: Soar over the Chugach Mountains and the expansive Knik Glacier rimmed with spectacular hanging glaciers. Spot mountain goat and Dall sheep at high elevations. Watch for black and grizzly bear, wolf, coyote, fox and other Alaska wildlife. Descend for a low moose-spotting flyby over Knik River.

Tour includes: A window seat and 2-way headset. Rich knowledge (and personality) of an Alaska bush pilot. A summertime only courtesy transfer from Anchorage airport and some hotels.
