Experience volcanic wonders from the very best vantage point – the air! Our Mt. St. Helens tours take you on a journey to one of nature’s most powerful creations. Nearly four decades after the eruption, learn how the past devastation still affects the local area today. We’ve been operating Mt. St. Helens tours for over 25 years and are the most experienced tour operator on the mountain. Our Bell JetRanger, widely considered the most reliable helicopter in the industry, can accommodate four people in addition to the pilot. Our pilots have extensive experience flying tours and performing U.S. government survey work on the mountain. They’ll share their insider knowledge of the area by providing a narrative with geographic and cultural context throughout your tour.
