About Us

Anchorage Helicopter Tours is the premier helicopter operator in the Anchorage area. Safety is always our first priority, and providing the best possible tours comes right after that. We work with the best in the business: from our pilots and mechanics to dog mushers and guides; we all love what we do and are exited to share our adventures with you.

A perfect safety record and consistent 5-star reviews ensure discerning travelers from around the world that they made the right choice. We work with many respected travel companies and are a proud member of Visit Anchorage and ATIA, the official State of Alaska travel network.

We operate a fleet of AS-350 ‘A-Stars’ and Robinson R44 helicopters. The A-Stars have 6 passenger seats, the R44’s can seat three passengers. Between our two locations and seven helicopters we can handle anything from a 2-passenger romantic wedding proposal to a 50 person film crew. We’re aviation and outdoor professionals and strive hard to give your the very best and safest tour possible.
