Flight time for this tour is just under an hour and takes you east from Merrill Field up over the Chugach Mountains, and dropping into Eagle Glacier. You will spend time in and around the glacier, before heading back through the headwaters of Ship Creek, and back to Merrill Field. A great tour for any budget.
Take off from Merrill Field, go up the front range of Chugach Mountains and drop into the Eagle River Valley. We follow Eagle River over the Eagle River Nature Center all the way back to Eagle Glacier, to discover an audience of Dall Sheep and mountain goats. Your pilot will give you ample opportunity to practice game spotting. We parallel Crow Pass trail, a historic Iditarod supply route. We follow along Eagle River as we fly back into Anchorage.
