Our most popular and unique wedding location is on a glacier. We land at elevations of 1,800 to 3,500 feet, with ice up to 2,500 feet deep below our feet, mountain peaks rising a mile or more above us and massive icefalls that dwarf the Empire State Building, giving you the feeling that you are the only people on earth! Flying by helicopter provides a view that is simply breathtaking. Words can barely describe the experience! During the flight you may spot mountain goats and maybe a bear or deer, fly over two glaciers and see part of the 1,500 square mile ice field that feeds the glaciers of Northern Southeast Alaska. The flight is worth video taping, so bring your camera(s).
