TS#1 Denali Flightseeing Tour | Optional Glacier Landing  

This magnificent flight takes you within six miles of Mt. Denali's summit. As your flight departs Talkeetna, you begin to notice how the last ice age has shaped the land. Moments later you enter a world of rugged high mountain peaks and wide glacier filled valleys. Listen as your pilot describes the natural wonders, history, flora and fauna of Denali National Park. See the Sheldon Amphitheater, beautiful Ruth Glacier, and the Great Gorge (the world's deepest - almost 2 miles from top to bottom). Our flightseeing tour provides an option for a glacier landing beneath towering Mt. Denali. The flights are focussing on Mt. Denali and its complex ridges and glaciers. Taking one of our longer tours allows our pilots more opportunity to share summit views, especially if one side of the mountain is in clouds.

Denali's famous west buttress, the Sheldon Amphitheater, Ruth Glacier, mountaineer base camps and the Great Gorge. Then fly across the divide to see Mt. Denali's incredible Wickersham Wall - a 14,000 ft continuous rise of rock and ice. Touch down for a landing at the Sheldon Amphitheater. Enjoy the stillness of the mountains broken only by the far off rumble of distant rock and ice slides. 4 passenger minimum.
