This trip made my trip to Alaska fantastic. Our pilot was great and even got a sled out for those wanting to slide down. The scenery was postcard perfect.

Fantastic trip. We chose SAS because of their great history. It is still a family owned business. The pilots, ours was David, are super knowledgable. It was great we could ask questions during flight. The landing was well worth it.
