to Denali (Mt. McKinley) is our number one choice for tour options in Alaska!
You will see another world in the Alaska Range; words cannot quite do it
justice - It's something you must experience to really appreciate.
Talkeetna is only 60 miles from the summit of Denali, so it is the premier
airport for McKinley Scenic Flight Tours.
Advance reservations are highly recommended as seats do sell out quickly
in the summer. Flightseeing reservations will be confirmed with a credit card deposit of
$50.00 per person, fully refundable if
the weather prevents flying. Note that each flight tour has a variable price
range depending on which Talkeetna air taxi service has availability.

Fly by the south east face of Mt. McKinley. Your pilot will narrate as you
fly, pointing out wildlife and geological interests.

tour number one, plus you will fly deeper into the park, over to the Kahiltna
Glacier (the longest glacier in the Alaska Range).
You will see the famous base camp where Denali climbers stage their
ascent, and possibly even see a team of climbers heading up to the summit via
the west buttress route. You
will also fly between the other two largest peaks in the Alaska Range: Mt.
Foraker and Mt. Hunter.
|The Grandest of
All tours! Includes all of tours 1
and 2, plus you will traverse over to the north side of the range and do an
"up close and personal" circle of Mt.

a glacier landing to any of the above McKinley flights and experience the excitement of landing
near Denali in the Alaska Range!
It makes you feel very small when you stand on the snow beneath the great
peaks. Bring lots of film, this is
an excellent photo opportunity! (Please note that glacier landings are dependent on the season and weather.)
·As of 2005, a Denali National Park Pass is required to land on a glacier
in the Park. A 7-day pass costs $10 per person, or $20 per
family. Passes will be sold at all of Talkeetna's Air
Services. You can also use your pass to enter Denali National Park's
main entrance 3-hours-drive north of Talkeetna, and likewise, if you've
already purchased a pass before coming to Talkeetna, it will be valid for
a glacier landing as long as you fly within seven day of purchase.
Annual Park Pass will also be accepted.
