Denali Flightseeing Tours to Mt. McKinley

Soar to new heights on our intimate, 3-hour Discover Denali Flightseeing Tour. Our Denali flightseeing tours feature an experienced Alaska bush pilot who loves to share Alaska’s most inaccessible and spectacularly-wild settings.  This is one of our most popular tours.

Flight pattern: Depart Lake Hood, Anchorage’s lively seaplane airport, traverse the flatlands across Cook Inlet, spotting for moose and beluga whales, depending on the time of year and weather,  and follow the ragged spine of the Alaska Range with its massive walls of rock and ice to the crowning jewel, Mount McKinley. The photo stop landing location varies seasonally and is dependent on weather.

At a formidable 20,320 feet tall, Mt. McKinley is the centerpiece of Denali National Park.  On a Denali flightseeing tour with Rust’s, you will get the best view!
