Denali Glacier Landing Expedition

Back to Denali Tours

Step into another world.

Walk upon an ancient glacier tucked away deep in the Alaska Range. Your adventure begins at our private riverside heliport. Lift off and be immediately immersed in the vastness of the Denali area. On your way to the massive Yanert Icefield, your pilot will serve as your guide through this unique glacially-carved environment. Soar over the rolling tundra, keeping an eye out for the local residents - caribou, moose, bear and Dall sheep. Snow-capped peaks and glaciers abound on this journey before you are set down on a river of ice. Enjoy 15-20 minutes of glacial exploration and endless photo opportunities.
