We saw plenty of glaciers in Alaska and I’m sure you will too but the one glacier that we will remember forever is the Knik River Glacier.  This is because we not only saw it, we also flew over it, walked on it and afterwards could enjoy gazing at it from a remote spot that we had just to ourselves.

Helicopter flights leave from the Knik River lodge in Palmer.  You will be in your own private group. You start by flying over the glacier to see the deep gorges.  Afterwards the pilot finds a safe place to land on the glacier and you can walk on the glacier, see the gorges from close by and taste the fresh water.

From here you continue to the Knik river at the bottom of the glacier.  A peaceful location that you have all to yourself.  Plenty of time to soak up the beauty of the area while sipping some champagne.As you head back to the lodge you take another route along the mountain and you might spot some bears or other wildlife from your helicopter.

We enjoyed every minute of this trip.  It might not be the cheapest excursion but if you want an unbelievable experience this was totally worth it.  Here are all helicopter excursions offered from the Knik River Lodge to spoil yourself to a luxury adventure in Alaska.
