Ride the Mountain Goat!

 

We nicknamed our helicopter the Mountain Goat because it’s so agile, rugged, surefooted, and tireless. “Ride the Goat” is also our biggest, most versatile trip, so customize your trip and fulfill your dream of seeing the real Alaska. “Ketchikan is just where they park the boat,” says one of our pilots. “Now your adventure can begin.”

Let the Mountain Goat take you where you’ve only dreamed of going, as we cruise over old growth spruce that top 200 feet, and soar up through the Ketchikan Alps, where only the Mighty Goats live. Endless waterfalls plunge by the windows as well as pristine alpine lakes and wildlife. This is a jaw-dropper; you’ll get a sense of how vast the Alaskan wilderness really is. We’ve never seen a customer who was prepared for the impact.

Tour available year round.

Add Explore Excursion

The Explore Excursion provides the chance to land and exit the copter. Smell the vegetation and fresh air, watch for bear sign and eagles, see the flora and fauna, and feel the awesome solitude few people on this planet ever sense. You’ll learn some natural and human history of the area.

Experience a true boreal rainforest and eco walk…the Explore Landing Zone adds a 15 minute wilderness stop and photo op to the Mt. Goat Flight and is optional but really worth the upgrade!

$299.00 per guest -adds 15 minutes to the main tour.
Two-person minimum; three-person maximum (call for more information about larger groups).
Solo travelers are welcome as well on all Mountain Goat Tours.


Add Wildlife Excursion

The Wildlife Excursion offers the same expansive experience as the Explore Excursion, with a focus on wildlife. We’ll head for the location offering the best wildlife viewing for the season in which you visit. Though we can never guarantee what we’ll find, even in the absence of animals you’ll learn and see signs of their presence, and hear stories of our pilots’ various wildlife encounters, while soaking in the wilderness with all of your senses.

This is the only private heli-bear viewing option in Alaska!

Why not let us turn the percent voltage up a notch and bring you to where we know the wildlife live? This opportunity will add a 30 minute stop to encounter a landing at habitat frequented by Alaska’s big game! Bear viewing at this Landing Zone is our focus and strongly suggested during the salmon spawn.
