Winterlake Lodge Heli-Excursions
Alaska, United States of America
A full day of helicopter excursions awaits at Winterlake lodge, an exhilarating and unforgettable way to experience the Alaskan wilderness, visiting glaciers, hiking along ridges which are otherwise unreachable, fly-fishing and floating along rivers.
Following breakfast and, if you wish, morning yoga, join your guide for a full day of helicopter adventures which can be highly personalised to make the most of Winterlake Lodge's breathtaking location.
Heli-hiking here is a true highlight, and your Robinson R-44 heli will whisk you up to the summit of Wolverine Ridge where you can experience the tundra ecosystem and spot caribou, brown bears and moose. Waterfalls, glaciers and blueberry patches dot the countryside and you can enjoy hiking amongst a variety of different landscapes. Another favourite is glacier trekking, where you can find startling blue glacial pools and dramatic crevasses; the adventurous can even enjoy snowshoeing or sledding here in the summer months! Fly-fishing is another popular option or floating along the Happy River in rafts, observing Dall's sheep, eagles and bears in remote and rarely visited glacier fed rivers. Speak to your guide about any particular favourites you may have and they will do what they can to accommodate your activity choices.
