Discover the Misty Fjords National Monument
The Misty Fjords National Monument has been carved to impressive perfection by millions of years of glacial activity. On this popular flightseeing Ketchikan day tour, it will take you only the blink of an eye to appreciate nature's handiwork.
The Misty Fjords National Monument is a 2.3-million acre piece of pristine wilderness that must be viewed by floatplane to truly take in its majesty: soaring cliffs, saw-tooth ridges blanketed in trademark mists, sky-blue lakes, endless waterfalls, icy saltwater fjords and miles of glacier-carved gorges.
While you take in the enormity of the Misty Fjords National Monument from above, you will listen to information on the area, as well as appropriate music over your noise-reducing headphones. While taking you on the most scenic flight possible based on that day's weather conditions, your pilot will keep an eye open for wildlife below. While wildlife spotting is never guaranteed on the Ketchikan tour, keep scanning the scenery below, where you may see creatures big and small, from burly brown bears to agile mountain goats; from harbor seals to humpback whales. Depending on the visibility that day, your pilot usually tries to stay approximately 1000 feet above the scenery, offering you the best up-close view from a safe distance. Maximum altitude reached is approximately 4,000 feet above sea level. A water landing on a mountain lake for photos and reflection is included.
The Spectacular Misty Fjords Tour in Ketchikan is a must-see flightseeing experience that will provide a lifetime of memories.
For safety reasons, talking to the pilot during the flight is not possible. Questions can be asked while at the lake landing and after the flight.
Total flying time, including the water landing time, is approximately 1.5 hours.
Please Note: Large bags and backpacks are not permitted on the aircraft, but can be safely stored in the office. Small purses can be brought on board the plane.

Start a great way to see this beautiful area. Landing on the lake was great and one I'd the most beautiful, untouched places I've ever seen. Our pilot was great. He went above and beyond to allow us to see as much as possible.
This was the most beautiful day we had in alaska and the pilot was perfect! We have amazing photos and videos for our memories

This Flightseeing tour was by far the best part of our cruise. Being able to see the forest from an aerial point of view as well as landing on a pristine lake to see the beauty of the Tongass National forest was FANTASTIC. We also saw whales in the bay as we flew back into Ketchikan. This tour is absolutely worth every penny.

The flight was flawless and beautiful. We landed in a glacier lake and departed the plane onto a dock. The scenery was postcard perfect! This trip was without a doubt a highlight of our Alaska trip.
