Explore the Alaskan wilderness on this Denali Helicopter and Hiking Adventure around the Denali National Park and Preserve. Trek through the wild Alaskan back country with an experienced local naturalist at your side as you discover untouched areas of Alaska that few humans have ever seen.
Your Denali heli-hike adventure combines the thrill of cruising above the mountains, trees, and wildlife with the serene experience of hiking in the crisp air and crunchy snow below. Your Alaska helicopter excursion begins when you take off in a modern A-Star helicopter for awe-inspiring views of the Alaskan wilderness. An exhilarating 15-minute flight will bring you to your secluded hiking area, located just beyond the boundaries of Denali National Park.
Once there, your friendly and knowledgeable guide will lead you on an educational adventure hike above the tree line. You'll learn how to track animals and interpret the flora and fauna. If you're lucky, you'll catch a glimpse of some of the spectacular local wildlife, like bears, moose, and Dall Sheep, in its natural habitat. Your hike will present you with unforgettable views of the rolling hills, tundra ridgelines, and spectacular vistas of Alaska. Depending on the energy level of the group, you will hike anywhere from 2 to 5 miles total with stops for rest and photos.
You'll have a chance to relax on a hillside overlooking the valley and enjoy a small snack to keep your energy up and take some amazing pictures of the scenic landscape, before heading back to camp.
