A trip to Alaska is a once in a lifetime adventure. The world will never feel the same again after you’ve seen the magnificent landscapes of tundra, mountains, forest, and glaciers. Glimpses of the wildlife will live for ever in your memories. This is nature at its most rugged and one of the best ways to see it is by helicopter. If you have a day free, a heli Alaska trip will take you to a glacier, or to a dog sled tour. Helicopter tours are also a wonderful way to celebrate events like weddings, birthdays and anniversaries.
Despite its remoteness, or perhaps because of it, Alaska attracts well over one million tourists each year. To be precise, in 2017, the state saw 1.93 million visitors. This was a 4% increase over the number of visitors in 2016. And there’s plenty to see. The state has some of the largest national parks in the world and stunning mountain scenery that includes 20 of the highest peaks in the US. There are over 70 volcanoes that could become active at any time.
Alaska is the biggest US state, and that’s saying a lot. It’s more than two times the size of Texas, and four times larger than California. So there’s a lot of ground to cover, and one of the best ways to do it is by air. Helicopters can cover a lot of ground, and put down in all kinds of terrain, including snow fields and glaciers. Sightseeing by air is also a good way to see the wildlife without disturbing it.
Where can Heli Alaska tours take you?
Heli Alaska tours can take you to remote glaciers, ice fields where you can go dog sledding and mountain ranges where you can do some alpine-style hiking.

In fact Alaska is home to more than 30,000 bald eagles, more than in any other state.
Like many others, you may want to do something special for your wedding or anniversary. The majesty and vastness of the landscape gives a solemn background to significant life events like weddings, anniversaries, birthdays etc. A helicopter tour over glaciers, tundra and frozen lakes would definitely make it a memorable event.
