Description

Get a bird's-eye perspective of the pristine mountain landscapes of Denali and the Alaska Range on a sightseeing flight in a top-of-the-line plane. Listen to engaging narration from an expert pilot about the glaciers and peaks below, and touch down in a snowy glacial amphitheater to walk across an ancient ice field.

Make your way to the office in Talkeetna for a quick safety briefing before boarding the plane and settling into your window seat. Slip on waterproof Gore-Tex boot covers and grab your headset to listen to the commentary of your pilot as they speed down the runway and take off.

Fly high over the Susitna Valley, following the river system toward the the craggy peaks of the Alaska Range. Cruise above the rugged slopes of Denali, looking down at the dramatic granite cliffs of the Great Gorge and the tiny outpost of the Don Sheldon mountain house. Finally, touch down in a vast snowfield on a glacier itself. Hop out of the plane to walk around this remote, frozen mass, taking in the stillness and serenity of the slow-moving river of ice before getting back in the plane for the return flight to Talkeetna.
