Our group of 5 were in Alaska for a business trip and we managed to fit in some time to experience Alaska. The tour we booked with Alpine Air was absolutely SPECTACULAR!! Not only were the views and experience amazing but the office staff and pilots were wonderful! We landed on a glacier and were able to get out and do some exploring which was incredible! The path to Prince William Sound was cut off due to weather but that didn't stop the fun. The pilots landed on the top of a mountain where we were able to get out and walk around. The view was like nothing I've ever seen! The pilots were great about spotting/pointing out the different wildlife on the mountain. We saw black bears (with 2 cubs), moose, bald eagles, and mountain goats. You can't go wrong with this company!
This is one of the best experiences ever. They are a first class operation. I am a pilot and Robby was excellent. Just spectacular in every respect. Just go.
Wow - just WOW!
We booked glacier tours with three different companies. All offered unique perspectives, but Alpine Air was by far the most bang for your buck. The views were incredible and I can’t wait to come back and do it again. Highly recommend. Don’t even think about it. Do it!

Weather wasn't cooperating and we couldn't go all the way to Prince William Sound. but we still spent an hour exploring the glaciers with a landing on Spencer and on a ridge where they often have weddings. Breathtakingly beautiful. Lena our pilot did a fantastic job. Highly recommend
While I originally wanted to do the dogsledding tour, it got cancelled twice due to bad weather. But they were happy to book me onto a glacier landing tour as i had no availability to reschedule the dogsledding after the second cancellation. The pilot was absolutely amazing and so was the flight itself. We saw bears and moose on our flight over the national park. The glacier landing itself was exhilarating. We felt safe and excited all at the same time. Would definitely recommend.
