Eagle Glacier Tour

Limited time and never seen a glacier up close? Look no further! The flight time for this tour is just under an hour and takes you east over the Chugach Mountains to Eagle Glacier, the closest glacier to Anchorage. We take off from Merrill Field in downtown Anchorage and follow the scenic Eagle River upstream, over the Eagle River Nature Center 20 miles back to Eagle Glacier.

Your pilot will give you ample opportunity to practice game spotting as we usually see Dall Sheep and mountain goats. We parallel Crow Pass trail, a historic Iditarod supply route as we fly back into Anchorage.

A spectacular tour and great introduction to the area if you have limited time available.

Our Reviews


Jeff, our pilot, was great. You have to do this tour! We learned so much about glaciers. I’m at a loss for words to describe the beauty and magnificence of the scenery.

"Terrific experience"

Deciding on a tour on short notice, hotel concierge contacted Doc. As I was without a car, he graciously agreed to pick me up the next day. Very friendly, professional and down-to-earth guy. Joined by a couple at airfield, pilot Leif did a terrific job explaining safety and previewed our tour up the Eagle River. Being solo I had the front seat! Extremely professionally, also fun and engaging, Leif described many details about the city, valley, glacier and the flight in general. Terrific experience, and extra accommodating of my disability. Thanks!

"A flight of a lifetime"

What a way to be welcomed to Alaska. The front staff, pilot and owner were so friendly and made sure I was treated right. Joel was kind of enough to take my early morning phone call and Evan ensured it would be a flight of a lifetime. Anchorage Helicopter Tours is professional, personal, and has the experience needed to make sure your tour is one to remember. Thank you!

"Want to come back for more!"

Experience of a lifetime. A surprisingly quiet, tranquil helicopter ride into the mountains, just marvelous. Pablo was fantastic, an experienced, friendly pilot who made us want to come back for more. Thanks again!
