We had the opportunity to go up in a Helio Courier C-GXFB with Icefield Discovery to experience the worlds largest non-polar icefield in Kluane National Park and Reserve in Canada’s Yukon Territory.  Soaring 6000 feet in the sky through the Saint Elias Mountain Range over the Slims River Valley, Kaskawulsh Glacier and the hundreds of giants with their snow covered peaks is a once in a lifetime experience.

Our one and a half hour flight took us past the giants that call the Saint Elias Mountain Range home including Mount Washington, Mount King George, Mount Kennedy, Mount Saint Elias, Mount Logan and so many more.  Landing next to the Icefield Discovery Base Camp with Mount Logan in the forefront towering before everything around it is a must do experience.  We had the opportunity to step out onto the snow on the worlds largest non-polar icefield where very few people have ever had a chance to explore was surreal experience.  To read about our entire flightseeing experience with Icefield Discovery make sure to read our post!
