Heli Hiking in Alaska for All Experience Levels

Our heli hiking opportunities include options for all levels of experience, whether you want to explore wide-open meadows of wildflowers or hike several miles of aggressive vertical gain. Depending on what you’re in the mood for, you 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’re after, 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 moulins (massive glacial sinkholes), ice caves, and crevasses.


Sky Trekking: Helicopter Tours Over Alaska’s National Parks

Although we handpick our top seasonal adventures for your Tordrillo Mountain Lodge trip, the Southcentral Region offers unlimited possibilities for experiencing the natural history that makes it one of the most sought-out destinations in the world. A number of adventures are included in each stay, but we offer add-on expeditions to explore all that Alaska has to offer. 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 Denali 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.

What Others Are Saying

“All of it serves as a launchpad for the supersize recreation that awaits in the Alaskan bush and the requisite decompressing that follows… It’s not just fly-fishing, it’s heli-fly-fishing. It’s not just hiking, it’s walking on the state’s third largest glacier. They’re not just cocktails, they’re margaritas made with 2,000-year-old glacial ice…The opportunities are many; the agenda is up to the guest.”
