Talkeetna: Denali Experience Flight with Optional Landing

1. Talkeetna: Denali Experience Flight with Optional Landing

Soar above the Tokositna Glacier on a panoramic airplane flight and approach the summit of Denali, the tallest mountain in America. Fly through the world's deepest gorge, the Great Gorge, and enjoy an optional landing on top of a glacier. Get ready for your flight tour with a warm welcome and a coffee, tea, or hot cocoa by the fireplace in a lodge-style, timber-framed office. Watch a short flight video in the theater.  Then, follow your knowledgeable pilot to your aircraft. Listen to a safety briefing, and then take a window seat. After a microphone check, take off toward the Alaska Range, flying over the beautiful Susitna Valley where they will spot for moose and bears. After a short while, see the Alaska Range rise up underneath you. The skilled pilot will provide interesting stories and commentary while taking you within 6 miles of Denali's massive summit (20,310 feet or 6,190 meters). Fly up the Tokositna Glacier Valley, following its winding path to Denali's base. The pilot will maneuver the plane so that guests on each side can take in the famous peaks: Moose's Tooth, Broken Tooth, and Barille. Then, descend into the Don Sheldon Amphitheater on the Ruth Glacier. The tour ends by flying through The Great Gorge, the world's deepest gorge, before returning to Talkeetna. This epic flight is the perfect introductory flight of Denali. Choose to add a glacier landing to make your trip even more memorable. Once back on the ground, have a chance to buy a souvenir or use the free WiFi at the office.

This was awesome! The weather kept us from landing on the glacier but we were able to see the summit. The views from the plane were amazing. Phil did a great job of showing us the mountains! It was the highlight of our trip to Alaska.

This was a trip worth every effort (time/money) that I put in. I LOVED every bit of the experience. Right from check-in, pilot intro, orientation, boarding and the the actual flight-seeing.

One of the best Alaska adventure that my husband and i done. Best birthday gift ever for my husband! Thank you for once in a lifetime experience! Majestic Alaska.

Highly recommend, great service, pilot was super knowledgeable. Must for an Alaska trip

This was great! Easy to book and get started, incredible pilot, and amazing views.
