What You Can Expect

Mt McKinley Flightseeing Tour from Anchorage with Glacier Landing

Glacier Landing

After convenient pickup from your hotel in Anchorage, travel north for two hours to the charming town of Talkeetna. Board a 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 helicopter 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.

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

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.
