Explore an ancient glacier in the world-famous Alaska Range on this truly extraordinary Denali Glacier Helicopter Excursion that combines breathtaking views from above with a peaceful walk on the ice itself.

Your Denali Glacier Landing Helicopter Expedition begins at the heliport overlooking the Nenana River, where friendly, knowledgeable staff prepares you to cruise over the Denali National Park and Preserve. Grab your camera and prepare to be awed as you take off on a cutting-edge A-Star helicopter for a breathtaking, bird's eye view of the pristine Alaskan wilderness. En route to the massive Yanert Icefield 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 rugged backcountry creating the magnificent towering peaks resulting from millions of years of tectonic rumblings. Discover the power and beauty of nature from a whole new perspective on this Alaska helicopter excursion.

Your adventure continues after your pilot lands gently on a Denali glacier, where you'll get a chance to try out the glacier-walking boots provided, to help you inspect the massive, frozen landscape. Explore amazing icefalls, massive crevasses, and the otherworldly blue of the glacial ice pools in detail as you enjoy the tranquility of this frozen wonderland. Experience the magic of the rivers of ice as you observe pure glacial streams and unspoiled ice pools in the pristine Alaskan glaciers.

Climb back aboard your helicopter to enjoy the amazing views as you fly off toward Mt. Deborah, which cuts an impressive silhouette on the skyline at 12,339 feet high. The Alaska Range is home to bears, moose, and Dall sheep, so be sure to keep your camera ready during this exceptional Alaska helicopter tour. Flight time is approximately 50 minutes, with about 15 to 20 minutes of time to explore on the glacier.

See the natural beauty and frozen majesty of Alaska from the sky and snow on this unforgettable helicopter tour of the glaciers and crevasses you won't see anywhere else. Book your trip today for this once in a lifetime 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.
