Overview

Enjoy aerial views of Denali National Park’s glaciers, granite peaks and icefalls on this flightseeing tour from Anchorage. Snap memorable shots of Mt McKinley and fly high over the Great Gorge of Ruth Glacier, which is even deeper than the Grand Canyon! Then land on a glacier for up-close views of the dramatic ice formations. A guided tour of Talkeetna and round-trip hotel transport from Anchorage are included in this full-day tour.
  • Flightseeing tour of Mt McKinley with round-trip transport from Anchorage
  • Soar high above the granite peaks, cascading icefalls, canyons and glaciers of Denali National Park
  • Marvel at the Great Gorge of Ruth Glacier, deeper than the Grand Canyon!
  • Enjoy commentary about the wildlife and geological formations from your expert pilot
  • Experience an amazing glacier landing!
After convenient pickup from your hotel in Anchorage, travel north for two hours to the charming town of Talkeetna. Board a bush plane and take to the skies for your 1-hour aerial tour of Mt McKinley, the tallest mountain in North America. During the flight, listen to informative commentary from your pilot about the surrounding wildlife and geological interests.
Fly over Denali National Park and admire below landscapes of glaciers, canyons, cascading icefalls and granite peaks. Enjoy a unique vantage point of one of the deepest gorges in the world — the Great Gorge of Ruth Glacier — a river of ice 4,000 feet (1,220 meters) thick, surrounded by towering cliffs. Snap shots of Don Sheldon amphitheater, blue meltwater pools and snowcapped peaks.
Next, get ready for a once-in-a-lifetime experience: Your pilot lands on a glacier, giving you the opportunity to walk on a river of ice and observe the ice formations from just a short distance away.
Hop back aboard your bush plane and head back to Talkeetna, where your guide takes you on a tour of its historical sites. Relax in town for lunch (own expense) before enjoying return transport to your hotel.

If possible I would give this excursion six stars as it was so awesome. It was amazing to see the mountains and glaciers from the air with an experienced guide. It was the high light of our entire trip to Alaska by far. We were blessed with a very clear day and good weather. The pilot was awesome and took our picture with Denali in the back ground and again with us in front of the plane. The plane held 10 passengers and was very steady. The down size was that we had not realized we had to take a 4 hour bus trip from Anchorage to the location where we got on the plane. So it is a very long excursion. We fell in love with the resort town of Talkeetna and wish we could have not more time there. It took a long time to get all the folks from all the hotels. We did not have time to sit down and eat in Talkeetna but had to pick up a pastry and eat on the run as we were scheduled to board the plane. Better scheduling would have helped this. Denali is the official name for Mt McKinley but I imagine more folks have heard of Mt. McKinley. Landing on the glacier and seeing Denali was the light of the entire trip to Alaska for us. Highly recommend this excursion.

OMG! What an experience! This was the BEST part of our entire trip to Alaska. I'm so glad my husband talked me into doing this.

Although McKinley was clouded out of the experience, we'll take that up with God.

Though it was very cloudy that particular, the pilot with his vast experience safely landed the plane on the glacier. Walking on the thick snow with the snow boots provided by the Operator was a fantastic experience. We thoroughly enjoyed the flight around Mt McKinley and to see in close views of the snow capped mounts and various glaciers.
