Excursions are guided by experienced Alaska pilots in modern jet-prop aircraft. Each passenger in your group will have their own window seat and headset, flying in complete comfort. You’ll immerse yourself in Alaska’s beauty and experience amazing views of Prince of Wales Island’s rainforest, LeConte Bay icebergs, and the LeConte Glacier.

Aerial tours provide unique access to Alaska’s pristine beauty and awe-inspiring views. You’ll be soaring over the 17-million acre Tongass National Rainforest – the largest national forest in the United States. Because of its remote location, it’s home to many endangered species of plants and animals. Often times you’ll be able to view wildlife as you soar overhead.

During your aerial tour, you’ll also fly over colossal icebergs floating in LeConte Bay. You may even be fortunate enough to observe the glacier’s “shooter icebergs,” which detach beneath the water and shoot out (because of their buoyancy). You’ll be in awe at the massive 21-mile LeConte Glacier, which is the southernmost tidewater glacier in the Northern Hemisphere. The glacier has shaped this vast terrain for millions of years. Experience these and much more from a bird’s eye view.

Some travelers visiting the Glacier have remarked in wonder at the sight:

“Right up there with hiking in Peru and seeing the sunrise over Ayers Rock in Australia.”

“The views of the glaciers were incredible; we’d seen them before from a cruise ship, but never from the air. A mountain that looks like it’s right there is several miles away, unbelievable!”
