Denali Grand Tour
Denali Grand Tour with Glacier Landing
2 hour tour - $425 per person = 5.5% transportation fee
"Our best vacation ever!" Local Alaskans and visitors tell us every day that landing on a glacier in Denali National Park was a highlight of their trip to Alaska or their summer. Adding a glacier landing to your tour provides you with additional insight into the vastness of Denali National Park's wilderness landscape. Seeing the Park from the air gives you an idea of the sheer size and scale of the towering pinnacles of granite. Standing on a glacier amongst the peaks is quite a different perspective and you understand the immensity of the Alaska Range and its scale.
No other glacier like it in the world! You could search the world over and not find glaciers like the ones in Denali National Park. By standing beneath the towering mountains, you will understand their immense scale and get a sense of the place that draws people from all over the globe. Imagine standing in a quiet world of snow and ice, hearing an airplane approach and watching as it lands on the slopes beneath you and taxis on up the snow strip. Your perspective on the size and grandeur of our planet will expand with this experience.
