Mt. McKinley Flightseeing Tour

Booking & Info

Flightseeing is one of the best ways to view Alaska. This flight takes you within 6 miles of Mt. McKinley's summit. Minutes after leaving Talkeetna, you enter a world of rugged, high mountain peaks and glacier filled valleys. Listen while your pilot describes the natural wonders of Denali National Park. See the Sheldon Amphitheater, beautiful Ruth Glacier, and the world's deepest gorge. Crossing the broad valley between Mt. McKinley and Talkeetna, look for wildlife including moose and bear. All K2 tours include this basic route ... "no trip to Alaska is complete without this experience".

Historic Walking Tour
The local paper, the Talkeetna Good Times, wrote an article recently describing all the historical buildings in Talkeetna and their history. Use it for your own historical walking tour.

There are a number of walking trails right from the Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge that provide great views of Mt. McKinley and a chance to experience the flora and fauna of the area up close.

Or, from downtown head toward the river where there are a number of trails that allow you to view the powerful and majestic confluence of the Susitna, Talkeetna, and Chulitna rivers.
