The landing at Bear Glacier is at an incredible beach with icebergs that wash onshore. This landing is routinely voted a "must do" by our staff. It's a great location for photos, serenity, and to experience Alaska's backcountry. 

 

Flight Time

More flight time gives the potential to see Aialik, Skilak, or Godwin Glacier. Depending on the timing, we may be able to look for bears too!

THE ROUTE

Flight Route

Depart the Seward Airport and fly out Resurrection Bay to Tonsina Beach. From there, follow beautiful Spruce creek back into a mountainous valley. Keep a sharp eye out for an old mining camp. You'll be impressed when Cathedral Falls comes into view. This incredible cascading waterfall is a sight to behold. Your helicopter will then ascend through an alpine meadow. Views of Calisto glacier are possible later on in the summer when the snow has melted. Soar over beautiful mountain peaks as Bear Glacier comes into view. This expansive glacier is over 7 miles long and 2 miles wide. Fly low and slow up the face of the glacier and zoom through icebergs. On the flight back, fly over Fort McGilvray, an old World War 2 installation or through Paradise valley if the weather allows.
