Anchorage Discover Denali Flightseeing Tour

1 reviews

Excursion Overview

Soar through the incredible glaciers, peaks, and valleys of Denali

Denali (formally known as Mt. McKinley) is the tallest mountain in North America with a summit elevation of 20,310 feet above sea level.

Your journey starts from Anchorage's lively seaplane base, Lake Hood. Fly over the flatlands across Cook Inlet and look for wildlife such as Beluga whales, moose, bears, swans, and the occasional wolf or coyote. Follow the rugged spine of the Alaska Range with its massive walls of rock and ice to the crowning jewel, Denali. View Tokosha Mountains, the winding Tokositna Glacier, and Ruth Glacier, a 40-mile long glacier that flows through the granite-walled Great Gorge which is the deepest trench in the world. Depending on the time of year and weather conditions, you may observe the ebb and flow that shape glacial ice and landscape. Depending on mother nature, you may spot cascading ice-falls and the occasional plummeting avalanche.

In summer, enjoy a remote lake landing on floats for photo opportunities. When a lake stop is not available (primarily winter months), enjoy a visit to the quaint town of Talkeetna. The photo stop landing location varies seasonally and is dependent on weather. The landing is about 15-20 minutes, long enough to stretch your legs and take some awesome photos.
