Five Star Heli Tours takes off from AKBCC

by | Jun 11, 2021

In one of the many 5 star reviews Kelly said, “We just got married yesterday using Outbound Heli Adventures to fly us to the glacier, etc. They were all amazing to work with and we had an excellent experience! Words cannot describe what a cool adventure this was! I highly recommend using this company!!

Summer Dog Sledding After a scenic flight through the Knik River Valley and over the stunning Knik Glacier, land at 4,000 ft and mush your own dog sled team across snow covered glacial terrain. Drive your own team of veteran Iditarod Alaskan huskies or sit back and let your musher guide the pack while you take in the rush of being on the trail.

Ice Climbing Flight-seeing your way out to the Knik Glacier and put an axe in ice thousands of years old. Whether you are looking for an exciting new adventure or an experienced climber looking for a challenge, join an experienced ice guide on the frozen surface of Lake George or, at the toe of Colony Glacier and climb an already established route up a gigantic iceberg (winter) or explore the many ice formations on the Knik Glacier (summer). Choose from a half day experience (2 hours) or a full day climbing experience (4 hours). For more experienced climbers, all day excursions are also available.

Ridge Running Join Kate Arnold, former TOPO athletic ambassador, creator of Palmer’s Monday Fun Run, and Run Like A Girl guide, on the run of a lifetime! Take a scenic flight through the Chugach Mountains, Talkeetna Mountains, or the Alaska Range and land on a high ridgeline of your choice. Enjoy the day taking in the views at 6,000 ft. on some of Alaska’s most beautiful and challenging terrain while your guide provides safety and running expertise

Andrew left another 5 star Review when he said: Such an epic adventure! Wow! Exploring the Knik Glacier from the air is unbelievable and a must when visiting Anchorage. Outbound Heli is first class all the way! Bridget made booking and planning our trip a breeze. She is so knowledgeable of the area and was even able to help us find a place to stay! Our pilot Chris was so rad and friendly. We immediately felt like family. Landing on the Glacier is also a must when visiting Alaska! I can’t wait to bring the rest of my family back for another EPIC Adventure with Outbound Heli! I highly recommend Outbound Heli to check off your “Alaska Helicopter Adventure Tour” from your bucket list! Give them a call!

Personally, I’m VERY excited to have Chris and Bridget with Outbound Heli Tours join us at AKBCC!



What a great place! Everything you need and very well designed. Great amount of counter space 👌. The views out the front window and deck are fantastic. – Mike H.

Highly Recommended!

This place is wonderful! The view of the mountain range is excellent and the spot is secluded if your looking to wind down. Highly recommended if you are wanting to adventure in the Palmer-Wasilla area. The cottage was clean and the bed was comfortable. The owner left milk, a few eggs, coffee, oatmeal and snacks for us. It was a nice surprise. – Courtney D.
