This Talkeetna flightseeing tour by bush plane is an extended version of the Denali Experience Tour. In addition to that route, you will fly to the remote western end of Denali National Park. Explore the south side of Denali (formerly Mt. McKinley at 20,320 feet), Mt. Foraker (17,400 feet) and Mt. Hunter (14,573 feet). Fly over the winding Kahiltna Glacier, the longest glacier in Denali National Park (45 miles long and 3 miles wide), and on to the Denali climber’s Base Camp located at 7,200 feet. Spot mountain climbers as they traverse the glacier and make their way to the West Buttress, a popular climbing route.
The highlight of this Talkeetna day trip is a 30 minute glacier landing. Experience the ancient ice and majestic mountain up close.
Glacier landings occur in Denali National Park and are subject to a $10 National Park fee per person, to be paid at time of departure in Talkeetna.
