What You Can Expect

Mt McKinley Flightseeing Tour from Anchorage with Glacier Landing

Glacier Landing

After pickup from your Anchorage hotel, you’ll be taken on a scenic 2-hour drive to the quaint town of Talkeetna, where you’ll board a plane for your 1-hour flightseeing tour of Mt McKinley.

Soar high above the granite peaks, cascading icefalls, canyons and glaciers of Denali National Park. You’ll be awed by the Great Gorge of Ruth Glacier, filled with a 4,000-foot thick (1,220-meter) river of ice. The depth of this glacier combined with the height of the towering cliffs create an abyss that is deeper than the Grand Canyon! In fact, this is one of the deepest gorges in the world.

Throughout your flight, capture photos of the Don Sheldon amphitheater, snow-capped peaks, intense blue melt-water pools and cascading icefalls, and enjoy informative commentary from your expert pilot about the surrounding wildlife and geological interests.

Then experience a glacier landing! Land on a river of ice for an unparalleled viewing of these majestic rock and ice formations.

After your flight, your guide will show around you the town of Talkeetna. You’ll have time to stop for lunch (own expense) before heading back to Anchorage.
