What do I do if I need to add days to my travel plans (Layover Information)?

Do you have a travel layover issue with your Heli Ski trip?

If you haven't started looking for a place to stay, we have negotiated special rates at the local Holiday Inn Express in Anchorage. They have a 24-hour shuttle to pick you up at the airport, and are located in the "Spenard" district; close to the Anchorage International Airport with quick access to Anchorage Downtown with many things to do. Our Special Heli Ski rate there is $109.00 a night, single or double occupancy.

To make a reservation with them go to: www.hiexpress.com/anchorageapt  Be sure to enter corporate ID number 100215750 to get the special rate. Alternatively you can call the property directly at (907) 248-8848 (be sure to ask for the "heli-ski rate").

An eclectic alternative is the Copper Whale Inn bed & breakfast is located in the heart of historic Anchorage, convenient to the city's restaurants, galleries, museums and attractions and is one of the few structures that survived the 1964 Anchorage earthquake. Those of you coming to see us during the last three weeks in February might consider staying here, since Anchorage's Annual Winter Festival ("Fur Rendezvous") is going on during that period, culminating with the Iditarod start during the first week of March.

If you travel on national travel plans (frequent flyer miles and the like), and therefore brand specific, the Marriot Courtyard is close by the airport and offers similar amenities the Holiday Inn, as does the Hampton Inn (a little farther down the road). Both offer shuttles service for airport pick-ups.

You are welcome to book another night with us in Valdez as well. Do remember that it is $199.00 double/$249 single (per person) and includes all of your meals and airport transportation.
