Denali Helicopter Tour & Remote Landing
This is a unique opportunity to see Denali from another perspective. Fly by helicopter from Talkeetna towards the mountains and watch the grand spectacle unfold from a bird’s eye view. Massive glaciers are surrounded by the highest mountains on the North American Continent. Denali is the native Athabaskan name and translates as ‘The Great One’ – and great it is! At 20,310 foot it dominates the skyline and on a clear day can be seen all the way from Anchorage, 250 miles away. Did you know that Denali is the highest mountain in the world when measure in vertical distance from the base to the summit? And that the Great Gorge is deeper than the Grand Canyon? This is truly a land of superlatives and humans are suddenly very insignificant.
This tour is special because we land on a mountaintop that is only accessible by helicopter to offer you a unique view that nobody else gets to experience. Away from the crowds this is the real Alaska: wild, grand, rugged, and remote. You will have about 15 minutes to take the most amazing pictures and take in the landscape before the helicopter whisks you back to the quaint town of Talkeetna.
- Flight over the foothills of Denali, the highest mountain on the continent
- Birds eye views of the mountains, glacial rivers and water falls
- Land on a mountain top with an unmatched view of Denali National Park
- Go where the sun shines; we have multiple great landing spots
- Great wildlife viewing from the helicopter - no wings to get in the way!
The world is full of beauty and wonder. Sights to fill the imagination with awe. The breathtaking flight to the top of Ruth Glacier, is a fairy tale unleashed. Words give no meaning to the rugged sheer beauty that engulfs you upon arrival. The 360° panoramic view rapidly cascades into euphoria. Life is good. I'm walking on heaven's door step. A must see and do.....
Had the chance to take the family up to Mt Denali from Talkeetna today. Had an amazing trip with Santi as our pilot... highly recommend and hope to do this again!
