When you choose this 2 hour adventure you’re in for an outback treat of epic relaxing proportions. We’ll take you on a 25 minute flight Northeast of Anchorage and land on a bush strip near Lake George. There you can spend an hour enjoying a specially prepared picnic next to the scenic glacier water lake. It’s likely to be just you and nature out there, so listen to its beautiful sounds. Do some yoga. Or, if you’re daring enough to brave the melted glacier water, wear your swimsuit and bring a towel. Flight based out of Anchorage.

**This tour requires a 24-hr notice if you want the picnic food.

Fly Over: $1250 for up to 5 people. (2 hours)
Beach Landing: $1565 for up to 4 people. (4 hours)

If you dream of being close to wild bears, you definitely must go on this day-trip! Silver Salmon Creek is just an hour plane ride along the Southwest side of Cook Inlet. As you fly along you can often spot beluga whales, and see the Mt. Redoubt volcano steaming. On a clear day you may even see Mt. Denali to the north. After landing on a long beach near the base of Mt. Iliamna, in the Lake Clark National Park, you’ll spend a couple hours watching bears feed on salmon in their natural habitat. You’re likely to see bald eagles as well.

From Port Alsworth:
Beach Landing: $895 for up to 4 people. (4 hours)

Leaving Port Alsworth your half hour flight will take you past Tanalian Mountain, over the glacier-fed-water Lake Kontrashabuna and right by the huge Tuxedni Glacier on the Mt. Iliamna volcano. After landing on the long beach near the base of Mt. Iliamna, in the Lake Clark National Park, you’ll spend three hours watching bears feed on salmon in their natural habitat. You’re likely to see bald eagles as well.

*This tour is best during July and August when the bears are hungry for fresh salmon, not you. Bring your own sack lunch, water and a camera!


CLAM DIGGING & BEACH COMBING
$522 per person, 3 person minimum.shapeimage_1.png

If you’re looking for a delicious adventure, you’ll love this 4 hour day-trip! After an hour flight southwest of Anchorage you’ll land on a beautiful beach near the base of Mt. Iliamna. We’ll provide you with gloves, buckets and shovels, and teach you how to dig for razor clams. After about an hour of digging, and weather permitting, your pilot will cook up your catch so you can enjoy a fresh clam snack right there on the beach! Once you’ve scarfed them down, wander the beach for a bit looking for treasures like glass balls, walrus tusks, fossils, and petrified wood. And bring your camera to get photos of yourselves having a blast! Flight based out of Anchorage.
