Heli Rafting Trips

Our friends at Chugach Adventures will be your guides to combine helicopter rides and rafting/hiking trips. Access the remote glaciated Chugach Mountains with a helicopter flight from Alpine Air Alaska. There is no better view than from a Robinson R44 helicopter! Land on 20-Mile Glacier Lake and float the entire 20-Mile River Valley from the Glacier Headwaters to the Turnagain Arm Ocean. Keep a good look out for wildlife: bears, moose, bald eagles, & salmon.
Our most exclusive and remote rafting tour is a 6-hour full day adventure, from mountain headwaters to the ocean. Shoreside catered lunch, drinks & snacks, forest service user fees, rain ponchos, personal flotation device, and professional guide(s) included on the tour.
