Denali National Park—roughly six million acres (2.4 million hectares) of raw wilderness—is easily accessible by bus, but visiting it from the air allows you to see much more of its tundra, peaks, and forests. This ‘flightseeing’ tour crosses over the Alaska Range to the tundra of Denali’s northern interior, passing river systems, icefalls, glaciers, and peaks along the way. Plus, you can opt for a glacier landing if you’d like.

We had a wonderful time on this ride. Our pilot handled the plane expertly, smoothly ascending, flowing around the gorges and rock faces, and finally returning back to Talkeetna.

We just had normal joggers on our feet and they give you waterproof covers to put over your shoes. We were there on a very warm day so only had jeans, t-shirt and jacket. (sorry about the delayed response)

We did it and loved it. Beware, however, that a glacier landing is weather dependent, and thus not guaranteed.

We did this and loved it. We were on the glacier for about 45 minutes. We did get out and walked around and took pictures. Very cool!
