Take to the skies and experience firsthand the breathtaking beauty of the Alaskan landscape on this epic Denali helicopter tour. From the comfort of the helicopter, you'll be able to witness the majestic beauty of the Alaskan wilderness and gain a unique perspective of the region's geological history. Soar above the clouds and take in the stunning views of the Alaskan landscape in an experience you won't forget.

This Denali helicopter tour begins just outside the Denali National Park, where you'll be welcomed by your knowledgeable pilot/guide, fitted with glacier over-boost, and briefed on safety instructions before boarding the helicopter. From there, you will be treated to 50 minutes of captivating commentary as you soar over the rugged tundra and sweep across the jagged ridgelines of the Alaska Range on your way to the glacier. Once there, you'll have the opportunity to explore the glacier on foot and marvel at its ever-changing landscape for around 15-20 minutes.

Frequently Asked Questions

What happens if the weather is too bad to fly?
If the weather conditions are simply too bad to fly, we will try to reschedule your booking to a later time of the day or a day that works for you. If you opt not to reschedule, or we are unable to accommodate you at a different time, we will provide you with a refund.
How many passengers can fit in the helicopter?
On average, each helicopter can accommodate up to six passengers, though this depends on the aircraft's weight and load capacity.
What if my group is larger than 6 people?
If your group is larger than six people, multiple aircraft will be utilized. The pilots will work together to try and ensure that the group arrives at the glacier at the same time, though this cannot be guaranteed.
Will there be any wildlife sightings?
That depends entirely on the wildlife, but while this isn't a wildlife-viewing tour, there is a good chance you will be able to spot caribou, moose, Dall sheep, and perhaps even a bear! With a bit of luck, you may even be able to observe these creatures in their natural habitat.
What if I need extra help on the tour?
This tour requires you to be able to get in and out of the helicopter, as well as walk on icy terrain. If you have any questions regarding the physical fitness level required for this Denali helicopter tour, please reach out to one of our agents prior to booking.
Is this a child-friendly tour?
Yes! Children two years old or younger can travel for free, provided they are seated on an adult's lap. Older children, however, will be counted as a passenger and must have their own seats.
