Six-million-acre Denali National Park has a single 92-mile-long spur road leading into it, and access to this road is restricted. Few people explore the entire length of the Park Road, and fewer still venture far off of it. The vast majority of the park is difficult to access, except by plane.
Flightseeing in Denali National Park offers a rare opportunity to see the most difficult to reach and rarely viewed areas, places never touched by human feet.
Flightseeing tours to and around Denali begin in Anchorage, Talkeetna, the Denali entrance area, and Kantishna at the west end of the Park Road. Tours differ in time spent flying, the route taken, and where they land, if they land at all.
You can explore the south side of Denali and the Alaska Range, flying over the Ruth Glacier and through the Great Gorge and the Don Sheldon Amphitheater. You might fly over the climbers' base camp at the 7,200-foot level on the Kahiltna Glacier. You might fly all the way around Denali, exploring the north side of the range as well as the south. You might fly around neighboring Mt. Foraker and Mt. Hunter in addition to Denali.
You can even fly up to the summit level of Denali with oxygen masks supplied onboard. Or you can land on a remote lake for a day hike deep in the wilderness area of the park.
