Flightseeing—via a helicopter or small fixed-wing plane—is a great option for time-strapped visitors looking to see as much of the glacial landscape surrounding Seward as possible. Helicopters are also used by kayaking, hiking, surfing, and ice climbing guides to transport clients to remote areas.

Take a scenic flight and soar over-dramatic fjords, tidewater glaciers, and wildlife in a fixed-wing plane or helicopter. Some itineraries allow time for a glacier landing and brief tour. Want to get to a certain destination? Often in Alaska, getting there is half the fun. You can take a flight-based adventure and access remote surf breaks, hidden beaches, and glacial lagoons on fly-in paddling trips. Flying over Resurrection Bay and the Gulf of Alaska is sure to be one of the highlights of your adventure. A quick flight to the top of Mt. Marathon gives you a bird’s-eye view of town before descending the hiker’s trail. Guided fly-in trips to more remote locations are also available.

Seward’s flightseeing operators have superior safety records and decades of experience in Alaska, ensuring a safe and unforgettable adventure. Most trips depart from our local airport.
