Why take this tour?

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.

Allow 2+ hours total including hotel transfers. Pick up times are thirty minutes to one hour prior to departure.

Tour operates from May 15th to September 15th (weather dependent).

Due to length of tour and passenger loads, all passengers will be required to “weigh in” at the heliport. Passengers weighing in excess of 240 lbs. will be subject to a $100.00 surcharge to ensure adequate seating space. All times are approximate.

Frequently asked questions

Absolutely! The entire trip will be narrated by your pilot and your voice-activated headset will allow you to speak to the pilot and other passengers any time.
In our aircraft, there are 5 passenger seats and the pilot. Some flights may be full while others may have just a few people. While this is generally thought of as a small plane, the Piper Seneca is actually quite roomy inside.
The airplane has a heater and at our normal altitudes, the air is only slightly cooler than on the ground, yet if you tend to get cold, it’s a good idea to bring a sweatshirt or light jacket.
We recommend: A sweatshirt or light jacket Sunglasses (or prescription eye-wear) A well-charged camera Bottled water, if desired Due to limited space bags can be stored with our team you fly
If the weather conditions are such that we cannot provide an enjoyable tour, we will work with your schedule to select an alternate day or flight time.
Unfortunately, we can’t guarantee a spotting. Moose, caribou, Dall sheep, and bears are all possible to see from the plane but each trip is different. Much of it depends on how good you are at spotting animals from above.
Yes. While not expected, it’s certainly appreciated.
Yes. Stampede Aviation is able to offer charter and air taxi services to take you just about anywhere in the continental US and Canada- weather permitting. If you have a special request for a custom tour we can take your request and work to build a customized experience.
Absolutely! This is one of the benefits of our more personal flights. We cannot provide car seats or boosters, so plan to bring your own FAA-approved one if desired. If your child is under age 3, we may suggest flying with only your family/friends, as to not disturb strangers if the child becomes upset during the flight.
We don’t have a specific weight limit; we operate based upon the overall weight of the aircraft. Before you fly, we will ask for your current weight. Please answer honestly as our team must do the correct calculations to ensure the flight is safe. We promise that our team will protect your information. If you don’t feel comfortable at any time, pull us aside and we’ll ensure your privacy.
We have the ability to climb to 12,000 feet or more, but depending on weather conditions, most flights are conducted from 3,000-8,000 feet above sea level, which is generally about 1,000-5,000 feet above the ground. This is to maximize the views of the scenery near us and avoid the need for supplemental oxygen or a pressurized aircraft cabin.
