Denali National Park—roughly six million acres (2.4 million hectares) of raw wilderness—is easily accessible by bus, but visiting it from the air allows you to see much more of its tundra, peaks, and forests. This ‘flightseeing’ tour crosses over the Alaska Range to the tundra of Denali’s northern interior, passing river systems, icefalls, glaciers, and peaks along the way. Plus, you can opt for a glacier landing if you’d like.
What to Expect
You will start your excursion by checking into our log cabin office at the Talkeetna State Airport 45 minutes prior to your flight departure.  Be sure to bring your sunglasses, light jacket (in the summer) and plenty of memory on your camera.
Board our ski-equipped aircraft and enjoy your pilots' commentary about the geological history and local wildlife on your individual headset.  
Continue your flight above Talkeetna and over the river systems of the Susitna valley as you enter into an incredible landscape of icefalls, glaciers and snow peaks.  You'll be awed by the Great Gorge of the Ruth Glacier, filled with a 4,000 foot thick river of ice, making this one of the deepest gorges in the world. Travel further into the range to explore the seven major glaciers that blanket the southside of the Alaska Range. This tour time allows your flight to explore the Northern side of the Alaska Range and the Wickersham Wall of Denali.  
Add a glacier landing onto your trip for a highlight of your Alaska vacation.  This will add 30 minutes onto your trip time for this chance to bask in awe inspiring scenery.
