Helicopter Fat Bike Tour
What Is A FAT Bike? A fat bike is a bike that has tires that are about 4” wide. To ride one for the first time is to rediscover biking! Let your inner child out and explore to your hearts content on these bouncy, confident, traction filled tires. These bikes are designed and meant to go anywhere, anytime and they have virtually no impact on the vegetation.
Our helicopters have the option to attach a bike rack to the skids, so the riders and bikes all go up at the same time (up to 6 people total, including the guide) and you get dropped off high above super scenic Lake George. The lake is filled with massive icebergs and the huge icefall of Colony Glacier dominates the horizon. This area has been awarded National Landmark status for its scenic beauty.
After a quick orientation about the bikes you’ll be on your way to explore the area by FAT bike. Your guide knows the best viewpoints and routes. There are no trails and very few people have ever biked out here; this is a true wilderness trip. We can adjust the terrain to the groups experience, from a 2,000’ fast descent to a gentle ride around the rolling hills along the lake shore, but since there are no trails it does take some experience and agility to react quickly to the terrain. There may be some short portages where you cross fast flowing glacial streams. Total bike time is about 2 hours.
