Enjoy a flight over Denali National Park to view Mount McKinley! This flight tour departs from Anchorage and to view the majesty of Denali from above. This tour features sweeping views over the Alaskan wilderness, and a brief stop at Chelatna Lake.

What to Expect

This 3-hour flight tour of Denali and Mount McKinley departs from the Regal Air offices in Anchorage. Upon departure toward Mount McKinley, you will enjoy fantastic views over Anchorage, the Chugach Mountains, and the scenic Alaska Range mountains nestled in front of Mount McKinley.

Your tour continues over Denali National Park, where you get once-in-a-lifetime views over Alaska’s largest and most incredible glaciers; the glacial ice falls, known as “waterfalls of ice”; and sheer, vertical cliffs. Your pilot will point out the remote mountain base camp where determined mountain climbers start their ascent of Mount McKinley. To maximize your experience, your experienced pilot will circle around the majestic peak of Mount McKinley, towering more than 6,100 meters (20,320 feet) over Alaskan wilderness.

Mid-tour, your pilot will make a fun water landing on Chelatna Lake, which is tucked into the foothills of Mount McKinley. At Chelatna Lake, you are allowed to de-plane and walk along the sandy beach to stretch your legs.

Upon returning to the plane, your pilot takes you over numerous rivers to look for wildlife. You should be able to see moose, brown bears, swans, and eagles as you soar over the forest in Susitna Valley.

When you fly over the Cook Inlet at the end of the tour, you can search for beluga whales in the waters below. As your tour ends, your pilot will take you to Lake Hood in Anchorage, the busiest seaplane base in the world.

What Other People Are Saying(3 Reviews)

Absolutes Highlight unseres Kanada/Alaska Urlaubs

September 2, 2012
5.0/5 stars

Abholung durch den Piloten (mit Auto) am Hotel mit etwas Verspätung. Das Wasserflugzeug und der Pilot absolut TOP. Der Pilot gab von sich aus wenig Informationen während des Fluges zu Landschaft und technischen Daten, jedoch hat er auf Fragen ausführlich geantwortet und Flugpositionen geflogen für optimale Fotoperspektiven. Landung im Bergsee war witterungsbedingt leider nicht möglich (zu starke Winde), laut Pilot sind so starke Winde selten, was auch zu spüren war. Jederzeit jedoch sicheres Gefühl. Einmalige Sicht auf den Denali Nationalpark und alle Berge der Gegend inkl. Gletscherfeld. Insgesamt 3 Stunden Flug, absolut lohnenswert. vom Preis sollte man sich nicht abschrecken lassen; ist sein Geld wert.

Excelente a pesar del precio. El paisaje merece la pena, el hidroavión da sensación de seguridad en todo momento y al final resulta toda una experiencia.
