This tour out of Talkeetna, Alaska takes you on a magnificent bush plane flight within six miles of the 20,320 foot summit of Denali (formerly Mt. McKinley). As your flightseeing adventure departs Talkeetna, you begin to see firsthand how the last Ice Age shaped Alaska’s landscapes. Moments later you enter a world of rugged high mountain peaks and wide glacier-filled valleys. Listen as your pilot describes the natural wonders of Denali National Park. See the Sheldon Amphitheater, beautiful Ruth Glacier, and the Great Gorge, the world’s deepest gorge – almost two miles from top to bottom. Everyone on this Talkeetna flightseeing tour has a window seat!
The highlight of this Talkeetna day trip is the glacier landing and 30 minutes spent exploring its ancient ice flows.
Glacier landing flights are subject to a $10 National Park fee per person, to be paid at time of departure in Talkeetna.
