Kruger Helicop-Tours - West Glacier
Our Helicopter Tours have a four-person per tour capacity in our helicopter. We offer a half-hour tour where you will see five active glaciers in Glacier National Park, including Harrison Glacier, Pumpelly Glacier, Blackfoot Glacier, Jackson Glacier, and Sperry Glacier. We will begin our journey flying over West Glacier passing over the Middle Fork of the Flathead River. Jim, your pilot, will name lakes rarely seen by the Glacier Park tourist as our flight passed above some of Glacier Park's peaks that are 9,000 feet and higher. We will see waterfalls most travelers to this area never knew existed, including Beaver Chief Falls, cascading over 1,500 feet from Lake Ellen Wilson into Lincoln Lake in the Western portion of the park. Our full hour tour expands the sights to include an additional thirteen active glaciers, including Grinnell, Salamander, Ahern, Old Sun, Ipasha, and Weasel Collar, as well as many others whose names are known to only the best of pilots, such as Jim, as we fly directly over the continental divide. Jim will explain what significance the continental divide has on your particular region of the country, if you live in the United States. We will also pass over the Canadian Border, and view up the spectacular Waterton National Park, Alberta. We will fly over Iceberg Lake, which was named from the many icebergs which float on the surface of the water. We will fly 2,000 feet above the lake, allowing wonderful photo opportunities.
