Walk upon an ancient glacier in the world famous Alaska Range! Your adventure begins at a heliport overlooking the Nenana River. Lift off in our cutting-edge A-Star helicopter to a breathtaking, birds-eye view of the Alaskan wilderness. On your way to the massive Yanert Icefield and surrounding glaciers, your pilot will introduce you to the mountainous terrain and stunning vistas. Glaciers have carved this rugged backcountry for millions of years and the magnificent towering peaks are the work of millions of years of tectonic rumblings.
Discover the forces of nature from a new perspective.
Your adventure continues after a gentle landing on the glacier. Under your pilot’s expert guidance, you’ll get a chance to try out the glacier walking boots we provide and inspect the massive, frozen landscape. Explore icefalls and massive crevasses. Experience the otherworldly blue of glacial ice pools – up close and personal.
Experience the magic of these “rivers of ice” as you observe glacial streams and ice pools. Back on board, the significant views continue as you fly off toward Mt. Deborah, which stands at an impressive 12,339 feet.
