Talkeetna is a quaint little town located about halfway between Anchorage and Denali National Park. You have some of the best views of Denali from here and it is considered the ‘Gateway to Denali’. Besides flightseeing and jet boat tours there are  great lodging and dining options in and around Talkeetna. More and more people choose to stay in Talkeetna and visit Denali National Park by air instead of driving all day along the only road into the park in a school bus.

If your travel plans take you to Talkeetna, we have some incredible options for you. We are the only company offering tours to the famous Historic Sheldon Mountain House. Envisioned by Don Sheldon,arguably Alaska’s greatest bush pilot ever, the chalet is located in a spectacular setting at the base of Denali, North America’s highest mountain. This is a unique and very exclusive option and we are very excited to share it with you.

We have two shorter Denali flightseeing tours with remote landings. With incredible scenery all around you any of these tours will be a highlight of any Alaskan adventure. Remember: we can fly where the fixed wings guys cannot go, let alone land. When Denali is shrouded in clouds we head southwest towards the Kahiltna glacier and land on a mountain top. Or we go east into the Talkeetna Mountains and land at 6,000′ elevation right on top of a glacier, where we often see the top of Denali above the clouds. Our Pilot’s Choice Tour gives you plenty of flight time to explore and a half hour landing to take the most incredible pictures.

Another great Talkeetna tour is the combination of a helicopter flight with a Mahay’s jet boat tour to visit the historic town of Curry. Lots of local culture and scenic vistas await you on this adventure, suitable for the entire family. We really enjoy this tour, and it includes lunch – what is not to like?
