Description

Get an aerial introduction to the breathtaking mountain landscapes of Denali and the Alaska Range on a sightseeing flight in a state-of-the-art plane. With an expert pilot providing running commentary, gaze out from your window seat to take in glacial features, frozen waterfalls, and snowy peaks.

Head to the office in Talkeetna to kick off your high-flying adventure with a short safety briefing before heading out onto the tarmac to board the plane. Buckle into your window seat, slip on your headset, and then sit back as the pilot speeds down the runway and takes off into the clear blue Alaskan skies.

Soar above the Susitna Valley, tracing its braided river systems and waterways into the craggy, frozen elevations of the Alaska Range. Look down at the vast swath of ice that makes up the Ruth Glacier as you fly above the granite cliffs of its Great Gorge, the deepest in North America at 3,700 feet (1,127 m). See the Don Sheldon mountain house, perched on a rock in the glacier's amphitheater, and peer down at luminous blue meltwater pools and cascading falls of ice before looping back to Talkeetna and touching down.

  • Guided sightseeing flight of Denali

Our original flight time didn’t happen. But they worked with us for rescheduling it very hard & sincerly. Flight itself was just breath taking. I’m afraid of hights but so worth it. Must do thing!

An unforgettable trip, so much more than I expected! The pilot, Leanne, was fantastic. Anyone visiting Alaska should do this trip with this company.
