Itinerary

Day 1: Anchorage Airport Pick Up

Pick up at Anchorage Airport.

Day 2: Denali Flyer Flightseeing Tour with West Face & Kahiltna

Soar high over the rugged peaks and vast, slow-moving glaciers of Denali on this breath-taking sightseeing flight around North America’s highest peak.

Take in the dramatic scenery of Mount Hunter and the Kahiltna Glacier, and circle by the fabled climbing routes on Denali’s West Face.

Climb into a sightseeing plane at the airport in Talkeetna and look out the window as your pilot taxis down the run way and takes to the sky, cutting a course over the winding rivers outside of town on the way towards the jagged peaks of the Alaska Range.

Loop around craggy Mount Hunter to see the South Hunter Ice Fall and traverse the 45-mile-long (72-km) Kahiltna Glacier, where you can spot the climber’s base camp and listen to your pilot share facts about the intrepid adventurers that tackle this formidable terrain. Spot the beginning of the West Buttress Route—the most-climbed route on Denali—and Mount Hunter’s highly technical North Buttress, which lures world-class climbers from all over the world.

Gaze down at the treacherous Ruth Ice Fall and the mile-high cliff walls of the Ruth Glacier’s Great Gorge, and pass within 6 miles (10 km) of the sky-high summit, which towers over the surrounding peaks at 20,320 feet (6,193 metre) above sea level. Spot the geyser-like spouting of the bubbling pond at the terminus of the Ruth Glacier, and then cruise back towards Talkeetna to touch down.

Day 3: Anchorage City Tour with Alaska Native Heritage Center

This 3-hour tour begins at the Port of Anchorage.

Enjoy views of the city as your guide explains the history of the port and the Ship Creek area.

Next, travel to Bootleggers Cove and Lake Hood, the busiest seaplane base in the world.

Then, head to Earthquake Park to see the site of the memorial of the infamous 1964 earthquake. You’ll learn about what happened to the land as it broke apart and slid into the Cook Inlet.

After a 1-hour city tour, you’ll be taken to the Alaska Native Heritage Centre for a 2-hour guided tour. This renowned cultural centre and museum, situated on 26 wooded acres (10.5 hectares), features educational exhibits celebrating the rich heritage of Alaska’s indigenous people, and is home to regular activities and cultural demonstrations. Following your guide through the centre, explore fascinating exhibits, see a village of life-sized housing replicas from ancient Alaskan cultures, browse arts and crafts, and watch some native dancing and games.
