En route to the massive Yanert Valley 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 remote rugged land, creating the magnificent peaks after millions of years of tectonic rumblings.

Denali, North America's highest peak, looms on the horizon as your helicopter ride offers remarkable views of unexplored peaks and massive glaciers right out the window. There is no better way to discover the vast expanses of Alaska's natural beauty.
Contained in Alaska's scenic beauty are the animals that call the Denali National Park and Reserve home.
