Returns to original departure point
After pickup from your Anchorage hotel, you’ll be taken on a scenic 2-hour drive to the quaint town of Talkeetna. Once there, your guide will take you to lunch in the town (included) and then you will board a bush plane for your 1-hour flightseeing tour of Mt Denali (formerly Mt McKinley).
Soar high above the granite peaks, cascading icefalls, canyons and glaciers of Denali National Park. 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.
Throughout your flight, capture photos of the Don Sheldon amphitheater, snow-capped peaks, intense blue melt-water pools and cascading icefalls, and enjoy informative commentary from your expert pilot about the surrounding wildlife and geological interests.
Then experience a glacier landing! Land on a river of ice for an unparalleled viewing of these majestic rock and ice formations.
