Summit Tour: 40 - 45 minutes

Over the top! This tour takes you to the summit of Mount St. Helens with unparalleled views of the lava dome from the crater's rim. The 360-degree view is breathtaking and includes everything from the summit through the crater, to Spirit Lake and neighboring volcanoes, Mount Rainier, Mount Adams and Mount Hood, and over the devastated area and beyond. It is simply breathtaking!

Departing from our paved helipad, the helicopter traces the Toutle River Valley which is buried by more than 150 feet of debris from the eruption. Following the mudflow from the eruption, the tour passes Elk Rock, Castle Lake and Coldwater Lake and takes you over Hummocks Fields to the famous "Ghost Forest". Blown-down trees are lined up as if the eruption happened yesterday.

We pass by the north side of the Johnston Ridge Observatory where Mount St. Helens stands as the majestic backdrop for this surreal scenery. After flying over Spirit Lake, which is half covered with floating logs from the surrounding hills, we begin our ascent to the summit. After exploring the summit, the flight descends into the actual crater to examine the lava dome up close and returns through the Toutle River Valley, passing by the elk-viewing area before returning to the helipad.
