Recommended Dress
As you will be visiting a river of ice, dress in warm layers with a coat, gloves, and a hat. Sunglasses are highly recommended for glare off the ice. You will be provided with glacier over-boots which fit over your tennis shoe or walking shoe. Shoes with heels can not be accommodated. Socks are highly recommended.
Restrictions
All guests, including all children over 24 months old, must purchase a seat and be able to be belted in. The tour cannot accommodate wheelchairs, canes, or walkers. Upon arrival at the glacier, guests will be given a trekking pole, which can be used as a third point of balance. Walking on the glacier involves moving over slippery, uneven surfaces. Guests must be able to walk unassisted to and from the helicopter, a distance of 50 feet, and climb two 18 inch steps in and out of the helicopter.

Due to weight and balance limitations, as well as guest safety and comfort, passengers weighing 250 pounds (113 kilograms or 18 Stone) or more on the day of the tour will charged an additional fee to reserve adequate space onboard the helicopter. Guests will be weighed on the day of the tour on a state certified scale while fully clothed and with shoes on. Any guest checking in who is more than 249 pounds (total weight includes shoes and clothing) and did not purchase the additional 1/2 seat will only be allowed to board if there is additional space available. If not, they will try to accommodate you on a later flight, if space is available.

Guests under 12 must have an adult with them on the tour. Guests 13 to 18 must have a legal adult guardian escort them to the heliport and sign a special waiver to participate. We must be advised in advance, so special waivers are available at the heliport. Infants up to 24 months can be considered a lap child and sit on the parentís lap during the flight. They will not be charged, but the infantís weight MUST be added to the parentís total weight. If this puts the combined weight at 250 pounds or more, the weight surcharge would be in effect.
