This is our most popular scenic tour, consisting of a full 30 minutes of flight time and highlighting the natural beauty of Kenai Fjords National Park's land and sea features.
You'll begin your tour by flying over Resurrection Bay's brilliantly blue waters, home to a variety of Alaskan marine animals including seals, sea lions and even humpback whales! You'll follow the bay's dramatic, rocky coastline before turning up one of the many valleys in the area to search for wildlife and view impressive waterfalls, salmon filled streams and hanging glaciers.
Emerging from the coastal mountains, your pilot will take you over an epic reveal of Bear Glacier Lagoon, filled with hundreds of icebergs-some as big as grocery stores! Here you'll zip around the icebergs and fly up Bear Glacier, the longest glacier off of the Harding Icefield at over 10 miles long and 2,000 feet think, before cruising through the aptly named Paradise Valley to look for goats and bear as you pass by even more hanging glaciers and melted, glacier pools. From there, you'll get a bird's eye view of Exit Glacier and then turn to follow the Resurrection River back to the airport.
Tours depart from Marathon Helicopters at the Seward, Alaska airport.
Complimentary shuttle service is provided within the Seward area only.
