  • Important Information

After pickup from your Talkeetna hotel, you'll be taken to your plane for an incredible flightseeing tour of Denali. Soaring high above Delani National Park and the breathtaking Alaska Range, admire views of majestic granite peaks, cascading icefalls, canyons and glaciers. Throughout your flight, enjoy informative commentary from your expert pilot about the surrounding wildlife and geological interests.

Choose from three flight itineraries:

Southside Explorer

Fly over the lush green wetlands of the northern Boreal forest before entering the Ice Age world of Denali and the Alaska Range. 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. Other highlights include the Don Sheldon amphitheater and intense blue melt-water pools.

Mountain Voyager

A pilot favorite, this flight leads right into the heart of the Alaska Range, with all the same features as the South Face tour as well as the East and West faces of Denali. Highlights include Denali’s massive sister peaks -- Mt Hunter Mt Foraker -- and the major glaciers that blanket the south side of the Alaska Range: Ruth Glacier, Tokositna Glacier, Eldridge Glacier, Kanakula Glacier, Buckskin Glacier, Coffee Glacier and Kahiltna Glacier, the longest in Denali National Park!

You’ll also fly over Base Camp, where daring climbers begin their epic 3-week journey of Denali.

Grand Denali

Can’t decide which flight to choose? Enjoy them both! The Grand Denali tour covers the same routes as both the South Face and Base Camp flights, giving you an unbeatable experience of Denali National Park.

Complete a whole circle around Denali's ridges and faces, and cross over the divide of the Alaska Range, revealing the arctic alpine tundra of the north side of Denali Park’s remote interior. You’ll also see Wickersham Wall, one of world’s greatest continual vertical reliefs.

Upgrade to experience a glacier landing! Land on a glacier at the base of Denali and experience the excitement of standing among Denali's great peaks, whose immense scale will astound you. You’ll be treated to unparalleled photo opportunities here.

This tour is seasonal and only operates from May through September.

    This was the most amazing tour I did so far. The route is scenic on a clear day. Check in was simple and our pilot was informative. I would definitely recommend doing this when you visit talkeetna.

    This was the best. Can not put into words how wonderful this was. We were scheduled for a tuesday but weather report was
    calling for rain. We were able to stop in the day before and they had a 4:30 opening that day. Very pleasant people to deal with, and the pilot was very informative and did her very best getting us to see everything from both side of the plane. Not a bad seat in the plane. We landed on the glacier and that feeling can't be verbalized. The price of the flight should not be an excuse. This is so worth the .
