Overnight lodge guests can step out of their private cabin and walk over to the main lodge for a briefing on their tour, then take off on a trip of a lifetime! All of our Tours depart directly from the lodge. The Knik Glacier Tours departing from our onsite helicopter base almost immediately have a bird’s eye view of the Knik Glacier. The glacial landscapes and ancient ice fields flowing out of the beautiful surrounding Chugach Mountains are amazing.
Knik Glacier Tours available from the lodge range from helicopter flight seeing with a glacier landing, to guided dog sledding, to heli-hiking adventures. All of the tours are great Alaska glacier experiences that offer impressive scenery and should not be missed!
Tours of the Knik River Valley include an ATV adventure that crosses the mountain valley floor, travels along streams, and past waterfalls to the Knik Glacier. This tour presents a wonderful opportunity to acquaint yourself with riding ATV’s while viewing the Knik Valley area from a different angle.
A local Palmer farm tour that highlights the impressive Matanuska-Sustina Valley agriculture history including challenges and successes departs daily. The tours provides a wonderful option to get to know the ‘Mat-Su’ area. A locally sourced ‘Alaska Grown’ lunch is of course included!
