Alaska Heli Hiking
Come and experience the rugged Chugach Mountains away from the crowds. At Anchorage Helicopter Tours we offer epic Heli Hiking Tours just minutes from Anchorage.
After a safety briefing and gear check you’ll board the helicopter and whisk off to the alpine meadows, well above timberline. The helicopter will drop you off in the high country where spectacular scenery surrounds you. Together with your guide you determine ahead of time how long and strenuous you wish to hike. Some people just want to stretch their legs and take pictures for a few hours while others want to scramble all the way to the top of one of the peaks and spend up to 4 hours in the mountains.
For photographers this is the perfect trip because you can take all your gear, set it up and wait for the perfect light without being rushed. We can do this in the winter on snowshoes, but most people prefer the summer months. June is mating season for the bears and they’ll be very active after a long winter hibernation. In July and August expect endless wildflowers, and September is berries season and the vibrant colors of fall.
This is our most personalized tour; groups are usually just 2-5 guests and a guide. We can accommodate larger groups on request, or we can do several smaller groups to ensure the ultimate wilderness experience. Checkout all our Heli Hiking & Photo Tours – see you out there!
