Scenic tours in the winter provide guests with exceptional views of the Alaska Range with dramatic lighting. The snow that falls in the winter months replenish the snowpack of the mountains and glaciers of the Alaska Range. Alaska winters can be extremely cold so you need to dress appropriately when flightseeing this time of year. Sunglasses, a heavy jacket, hats, gloves, thermal base layers and warm boots are recommended. Due to snow conditions and cold temperatures, glacier landings generally are not available this time of year.
