Moments later you enter a world of rugged high mountain peaks and wide glacier filled valleys. Listen as your pilot describes the natural wonders, history, flora and fauna of Denali National Park. See the Sheldon Amphitheater, beautiful Ruth Glacier, and the Great Gorge (the world's deepest - almost 2 miles from top to bottom). Our flightseeing tour provides an option for a glacier landing beneath towering Mt. McKinley. The flights are focussing on Mt. McKinley and its complex ridges and glaciers.
