Take a walk over ancient lava flows and experience a once-in-a-lifetime adventure on this helicopter volcano tour. Marvel at the evidence of the reaction of molten rock against the underside of a glacier and tick exploring a volcano off your bucket list! Admire stunning panoramic views from the helicopter as we soar above the Cascade Mountains and make our way to our destination. This volcanic crater is your playground; enjoy and explore it at your leisure. This particular type of volcano is known as a Tuya, recognizable by its distinctive flat top and steep sides that would have formed when lava erupted through a thick glacier or ice sheet. At some point in time, an explosive eruption would have occurred blowing out the northern flank of the volcano, leaving pyroclastic rock debris everywhere. Today, we’re able to enjoy this natural beauty that’s only accessible by helicopter, making it a completely unique experience. After you’ve worked up an appetite taking in the sights, return to the helicopter for a gourmet picnic lunch. Don’t forget to bring your camera and spare batteries too!
The trip includes a 45-minute flight, up to 4 hours on location, food and drink from our locally sourced Lepp Farm Market menu, trip photos, and memories that will last a lifetime.
