Walk upon an ancient glacier tucked away deep in the Alaska Range. Your adventure begins at our private heliport. Immediately upon lift off, you will be immersed in the vastness of the Denali National Preserve. On your way to the massive Yanert Glacier, your pilot will serve as your guide through this unique glacially-carved environment. Soar over the rolling tundra, keeping an eye out for local residents — caribou, moose, bear, and Dall sheep. Snow capped peaks and glaciers abound on this journey before you set down on a river of ice. Enjoy 15–20 minutes of glacial exploration with endless photo opportunities.
Due to weight and balance limitations, as well as guest safety and
comfort, passengers weighing 250 pounds (113kg) or more will be charged an additional $100.00 to reserve adequate space onboard the helicopter. Total weight includes shoes and clothing. Surcharge must be paid at time of booking.
Temsco’s policies prohibit you from taking the following items on our aircraft/tour:
Temsco will provide you with a secure area at our base where you may leave such items.
No smoking of any kind is allowed for the duration of the tour.
All TEMSCO excursions are listed as “MODERATE” activity level for the following reasons:
Temsco arranges seating based on the weight, balance, and safety of the whole departure, and cannot guarantee that groups sit together on the aircraft. Please note that Temsco will do everything possible to keep groups together for the flight portion of the tour, but we are sometimes required to split a group between multiple helicopters. All groups will be together for the glacier portion of the tour.
It is very hard to predict the weather on a glacier. Expect at least 10 degrees cooler on the glacier than in town, with heavy winds. Dress in warm layers – hats, gloves and sunglasses are highly recommended. And don’t forget a raincoat! We will provide the guests with over-boots for walking on the glacier, other clothing is not provided by Temsco.
The best time to book your tour is whatever time works best for you. There is no time of day that is consistently better than the other in terms of weather. Weather in Alaska is ever changing and predicting the weather from month to month is nearly impossible.
If you choose to cancel prior to the departure, there is a 10% cancellation fee up until 48 hours prior to the excursion. If you cancel within 48 hours, the tour becomes non-refundable. If Temsco needs to cancel due to weather or any unforeseen circumstance, you’ll receive a 100% refund.
A child does not need their own seat if they are under 24 months old on the day that they take the tour. These children are considered a lap child and are free of charge. A parent or guardian is responsible for holding the child securely for the entire tour. Any child 24 months of age or older is required to have their own seat per FAA regulations and therefore will require a full fare ticket for our tour.
Complementary transportation provided from all area hotels.
