What could be more Alaskan than soaring through the wildest country left on the planet; only to land on the clearest Alpine lake to breath the freshest air in this atmosphere? Pick some blueberries while you're there!

We had a very big group and Alaska Seaplane Tours were very accomodating. They managed to secure three planes for us, and tried to keep the group together as best they could. The tour itself is amazing. A must if you're visiting Ketchikan!
