Embark on a magnificent journey to view the spectacular glacial landscape of the Stikine Icefield. These features are so remote, the experience will leave vivid memories and impressions for a lifetime.
You'll be enveloped in a sea of peaks as you begin your journey above the waterways and remote forests of Southeast Alaska. During your descent, you'll discover deep crevasses and towering ice spires located on one of Petersburg's most spectacular valley glaciers, the Patterson Glacier.
Your pilot will be your guide as you experience this unique and fascinating landscape. The Patterson Glacier helicopter Tour is not only an incredible adventure, it is truly a dream come true.
Duration: Approximately one hour, includes flight time and a glacier landing. Please allow additional time for transportation and a helicopter safety briefing.
