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.
