Lake George isn’t just another National Park – it is home to a giant glacier doing glacier things. Sure, the park is great, and viewing the leading edge of a dirty glacier is sorta’ cool, but exploring the glacier and ice fields from the world’s smallest helicopter is what takes shenanigans to the next level.
A short 20-minute flight from the Alpine Air heliport takes you to the heart of the pristine ice fields of the Knik Glacier. The glacier varies in thickness, but we set down on top of 700′ of the most iridescent turquoise blue ice I’ve ever seen! We were miles from solid ground, just sitting on ice that is continually moving doing glacier-like-things.
