Historic Sheldon Mountain House

In partnership with the Sheldon Family we are thrilled to offer this exclusive tour through Denali National Park en route to the historic Sheldon Mountain House.

This exclusive helicopter tour offers unique views of the majestic landscape of the Denali massif. Fly over the beautiful rivers and lakes of the Susitna Valley on approach to the Ruth Glacier and the entrance of the Great Gorge where granite peaks breathlessly rise a mile high out of the glacier below.

Fly by the famous Moose’s Tooth before dropping into the Don Sheldon Amphitheater and landing on the Sheldon family’s 5-acre rock outcropping in the middle of the glacier. Your pilot will lead you on a tour of the historic Sheldon Mountain House and be your guide while sharing the history, geology, and incredible views of Denali and the surrounding mountains that make up the Don Sheldon Amphitheater. The tour includes approximately one hour of helicopter flight seeing, and a one-hour visit at the Sheldon Mountain House.

Absolutely amazing!

We were just hanging out in Talkeetna when my father-in-law met Austin (I believe the director of marketing) and he booked us a spontaneous flight. Our pilot, Santi was very informative, knowledgeable, and very determined for us to see some wildlife! We ended up spotting a black bear and a moose. We landed at the Sheldon Chalet, where we got to take in more of the beautiful views. Unfortunately it was too cloudy to see Denali, but were told on clearer days you can see it better. Once in a lifetime trip that everyone should experience!

"Will not disappoint!"

This is by far the best tour in the area and will not disappoint! We loved every minute of it and it was worth every penny! We even said we would have paid double! This is an amazing once in a lifetime experience to be able to land on the Sheldon Mountain Lodge property. Safe well maintained helicopter with an extremely experienced pilot.
