Glaciers Galore; Wildlife; Unparalleled Scenery

The beauty and splendor of an Alaskan air adventure will begin only minutes after departing Anchorage for our flight to the magnificent Columbia Glacier. As we lift off from Merrill Field we are almost immediately surrounded in the mountains and glaciers of the Chugach Range as we look for the magnificient Dall Sheep and Mountain Goats that inhabit the area. Also, keep an eye out for Bear on this flight too, as there are several areas for them along the way. Flying eastward past the Knik, Colony, and George Glaciers, we descend into the College Fjord to get our first glimpses of the tidal glaciers that calve off into the fjords of Prince William Sound. Your pilot will now fly low-level over the Sound to look for whales, SeaLions, Seals, and Sea Otters; and within minutes you will arrive at the Columbia Glacier. As you fly over the Columbia you will witness the massive movement of the glacier evidenced by the countless crevasses opened up by the expansion of the ice.

Departing the Columbia for the return to Anchorage and flying low-level over the Sound, many whales are spotted along the way in the summers when the Salmon are heading for the spawning grounds. Many fishermen and boats are seen enroute working their nets. As we pass Whittier and arrive in Turnagain Arm be sure to look for the Alyeska Ski Area, famous for world class skiing. After passing the historic gold mining area of Hope you will see the City of Anchorage unfold below, surrounded on three sides by water.
