Heli-Hiking in Alaska – You Be The Guide
We don’t believe that you should have to work hard for a beautiful view, which is why we have added heli hiking to our repertoire of Alaskan adventure activities. From Tordrillo Mountain Lodge we whisk you away to the nearby surrounding mountain environments that offer hikes otherwise inaccessible with a helicopter. Opportunities range from exploring wide open meadows of wildflowers to those that cover several miles and include aggressive vertical gain. Depending on what you’re in the mood for, we may choose a full day hike, or explore several areas for heli hiking opportunities offering varied landscapes and panoramic views of the world. If it’s glaciers you desire, we have access to some of the biggest glaciers in all of Alaska. We can explore many of these ice masses with crampons and ropes and discover Moulin’s, ice caves and crevasses. We’ll follow you.
So much Alaska, so little time.
Although we handpick our top seasonal adventures for your Tordrillo Mountain Lodge trip, the South central Region offers unlimited possibilities for experiencing the natural history that makes this one of the most sought out destinations in the world. We will recommend extra, add-on possibilities when you make your reservation, or you can decide once you arrive. Brooks Camp at Katmai National Park & Preserve, known for the most impressive, up-close bear viewing in the world, is a short flight from the lodge. Flightseeing over Denali National Park and around the summit of Mt. McKinley is 40 minutes from our front door, and on your way there you see the Tordrillos, a volcanic range that also has unending glaciers and dramatic views of surreal spires and peaks.
