Description

Take a Knik Glacier tour and experience a glacier and wildlife adventure. Soar over towering Knik Glacier – the centerpiece of Lake George National Natural Landmark. At 25 miles long and 5 miles wide, Knik Glacier is one of Southcentral Alaska’s biggest and most spectacular glaciers and towers above Knik River Valley – an area rich in vegetation, fish, and Alaska wildlife.

On the north side of the Knik River, sunny, south-facing slopes are common lambing areas for Dall sheep. Moose are plentiful year-round. Black and grizzly bear, wolf, coyote, fox, lynx, wolverine, snowshoe hare, American beaver, the Arctic ground squirrel, and the occasional river otter may also be spotted. On this hour and a half Knik Glacier flightseeing tour with Rust’s Flying Service, we depart from the world’s busiest seaplane base for the expansive Knik Glacier, located 50 miles north of Anchorage, Alaska. We also fly over Colony Glacier to Lake George, which spills into the winding Knik Glacier Gorge.
