Route Description

Land at the end of glacier lake filled with icebergs from nearby Nizina Glacier. The views from the lakeshore are outstanding and there is a public use cabin tucked into the wood about a half a mile from the airstrip. This area offers casual hikes along the lakeshore and gravel bars along the Nizina River as well as routes up Nizina Mountain to alpine areas above treeline. This spot has it all; glaciers, rivers, mountains and a snug cabin in pretty setting.

Certificate of Excellence

Just a note to say thanks for a wonderful flightseeing trip. And I also appreciated the steps you took throughout the flight for safety – when you kept all other aircraft in sight constantly. The flightseeing trip through the Tana Canyon and up over the Bagley Icefield was our favorite part of our vacation to Alaska. The sights were awesome. We really appreciated that took the time to point out the moose, bears buffalo and wolf that we saw. It was a sight that we will never forget. The views of Mt. St. Elias and Mt. Logan will never be forgotten; nor the sight down the Bering Glacier to the Pacific Ocean. Thank again for the wonderful flight. We hope to be back someday soon for another one. .
