Mountain Lakes Tour

Soar over mountains, lakes, waterfalls, and wildlife in one of our agile, rugged, surefooted and tireless helicopters. Our Mountain Lakes tour is 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 us 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.

Wildlife Landing Excursion

The Wildlife Excursion offers the same expansive experience, 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.
