Flightseeing & Helicopter Tours
Alaska's landscape is so vast and varied, sometimes taking to the air is the only way to really grasp its grandeur. Flight tours — sometimes called flightseeing — send you aloft in small planes that hold anywhere from two to eight people, or helicopters that hold two to four. Each tour may have a specific goal—for example, flying up to a glacier on the flanks of mighty Denali, viewing wildlife, or following the Iditarod from above—or just take you up high enough for a bird's eye view as the pilot talks about the rivers and glaciers snaking by beneath you.
Alaska flightseeing and helicopter tours range in duration from quick hour-long flights to get a taste of the views to full-day trips that include activities like dog sledding, glacier landings, bear viewing, kayaking, and more. If you’re interested in exploring Alaska’s national parks, flightseeing trips are a great way to experience the landscapes and wildlife of top destinations like Denali National Park & Preserve, Wrangell St. Elias National Park, Lake Clark National Park & Preserve, Katmai National Park — as well as parks that are more off the beaten track.
