Denali Helicopter Excursion

Cruise high above the icy mountains of the Alaska Range on a Denali helicopter excursion that features breathtaking views of the landscape and wildlife of the Denali National Park and Preserve.

Your Denali helicopter tour begins at the heliport overlooking the Nenana River, where helpful and knowledgeable staff prepare you to soar over the Denali National Park and Preserve. Grab your camera and prepare to be wowed as you take off on a contemporary A-Star helicopter for a spectacular, bird's-eye view of the pristine Alaskan wilderness. En route to the massive Yanert Valley and surrounding glaciers, your experienced pilot will fly you over the mountainous terrain, massive glaciers and stunning vistas you can only experience on an Alaska helicopter excursion. Your knowledgeable guide will detail how the glaciers have carved this remote rugged land, creating the magnificent peaks after millions of years of tectonic rumblings. See the true beauty of untouched wilderness on your Alaska helicopter excursion.

Denali, North America's highest peak, looms on the horizon as your helicopter ride offers remarkable views of unexplored peaks and massive glaciers right out the window. There is no better way to discover the vast expanses of Alaska's natural beauty.

Contained in Alaska's scenic beauty are the animals that call the Denali National Park and Reserve home. Keep your camera ready to snap pictures of bears, moose, and Dall Sheep on the icy grounds below as you make your way to your landing point. You will have the opportunity to set foot onto the soft, alpine tundra as your helicopter guide will take you onto a mountain landing, which will only be accessible by helicopter. You'll get a chance to explore the surrounding area and see the ecosystem, view the local wildlife, and take in the fresh mountain air. After about 15 to 20 minutes of exploration, you'll make your way back to the helicopter.

At the end of this once-in-a-lifetime tour, you will be transferred back to your meeting point, after 15 minutes of Alaskan helicopter exploration. Discover the unspoiled natural beauty and frozen majesty of Alaska from high above the snowy wilderness on this unforgettable helicopter tour of the glaciers, mountains and crevasses of Denali National Park. Book your trip today for this unbelievable adventure.

Please Note: If you are staying in the Talkeetna area (McKinley Princess Lodge, Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge etc.), you are approximately 100 miles from the Denali Park main gate area, from which this tour departs. You would be responsible for your own transportation to the Denali area.
