Join us for helicopter tours departing from Merrill Field Airport in downtown Anchorage year round.  These tours are great if you only have a day to play. Even if you just have an hour, we can get you out there and back in time for you next adventure.

Arriving or departing on an Alaska Cruise? Chances are you fly in or out of Anchorage and we can show you all the stuff you don’t see from the ship. Choose from a quick 30-minute flight into the wild Chugach Mountains to a landing on a glacier to explore the azure blue melt pools and the bizarre ice formations.

For winter visitors we have some ‘cool’ options as well: how about dogsledding with a real Iditarod musher and his team of canine athletes? They eat raw meat, run naked and sleep in the snow (the dogs that is; the mushers usually wear at least shorts).

If you are more of a motorhead choose our helicopter & snowmobile tours and rip up some deep pow. Dogsled and snowmobile tours are available in summer and winter.
