Envision yourself exploring this magical landscape by helicopter. Fly over the mighty Knik Glacier and land at the shore of a lake filled with icebergs calving off Colony Glacier. Here you’ll embark on a guided rafting or kayak tour (your choice) through the icebergs. Some of them are the size of a apartment building!
We typically spend about 1.5 hours on the lake so you have plenty time to admire and photograph the 'bergs' before we head back to shore. The guide is rowing the raft and if you join him you can sit back and relax and really soak in the amazing scenery. If you prefer, you can jump in a kayak and paddle yourself.
After about 1.5 hours get back on shore for a snack and a drink before heading out by FAT bike (mountain bike with 4" wide tires) or a hike along the lake. If you prefer you can also relax in camp and look for wildlife with our spotting scope or binoculars. Moose, black bears, mountain goats and Dall sheep frequent the area. If you're lucky you may spot wolves, coyotes, lynx or a wolverine.
This tour is a staff favorite because it allows you some extra time in the backcountry and really appreciate the scenic beauty of the area. Lake George is one of the most scenic places in Alaska with steep mountains all around, the Knik Glacier on one side and Colony Glacier calving into the lake on the other side. Massive waterfalls and lots of wildlife make this a truly remarkable place to spend some time. If you want to spend a night out at this amazing place look into our overnight option, or combine it with the dogsled tour. Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions!
