Chugach Mountains & Glaciers

Just after takeoff we head toward the Chugach Mountain Range. After flying over the Chugach Range we will fly out over one of the most scenic areas in Alaska, the Knik and Colony Glacier Valleys. Stretching 5 miles wide and 25 miles long, the blue glacier winds its way through the Chugach Mountain Range. Less than a mile away lays the end to another great glacier, the Colony Glacier. The steep descent of the Colony and its “ice falls” make for incredible aerial photos. After a fantastic flight around the Knik and Colony glaciers you will continue to fly low over the Knik River Valley on the way back into Anchorage.

Landing: Possible depending on season and conditions.
