Travel back into the Ice Age aboard a state of the art-six passenger turbine helicopter for a voyage to the world-famous Mendenhall Glacier! You'll soar over wetland habitats, alpine ridges, and thriving rain forests to the awe-inspiring glacier. Cruise effortlessly above twisted ice spires and deep blue crevasses, and while gaining altitude you may pass the Mendenhall Towers, escalating 3,000 feet above the glaciers. Gently land on this river of ice and take in the breathtaking scenery, while experiencing Alaska's outdoor serenity. Fitted with a pair of glacier boots, you will enjoy 20-25 minutes on the glacier. Your guide will show you rocky moraines and moulins while you gain knowledge of how the glacier forms, flows, and shapes the surrounding landscape. Lift off and view for the last time the unforgettable sight of the Mendenhall Glacier as you soar back into civilization.
