Looking to experience the Alaskan backcountry, but don’t have the time for a full day of trekking? The Tundra Express will get you there! This approximately 2-hour excursion takes you into the heart of Alaskan tundra without taking all your time. You’ll explore the mountains & unique landscapes just outside Denali National Park, maybe even catching glimpses of the impressive peak itself. Experience the soft & strange feel of the summer Tundra earth for yourself, and learn about this unique ecosystem from your guide. With expansive views all around, wildlife opportunities from the above, and fresh mountain air to fill your lungs, the Tundra Express truly is one of the best Denali Park excursions for its price! And don’t forget about the stunning flight portion of this tour! You’ll experience beautiful aerial views of the Alaska Range, and rolling Tundra before landing to experience it first-hand.
The Tundra Express Helicopter Tour takes off from the base conveniently & beautifully located just outside Denali National Park. This means this Helicopter tour is one of the best Denali Park excursions for immediate views! After a safety briefing, you’ll fly for approximately 10 minutes past soaring peaks & rolling tundra into the Alaskan backcountry before touching down. As you fly, keep an eye out for local wildlife including bears, moose, caribou, & Dall sheep. Touching down, take a moment to appreciate the clean mountain air, and spongy tundra beneath your feet. This unique landscape feels like nothing else! Your knowledgeable pilot is also your guide. They will tell you all about the local flora, fauna, and landscape. As you wander the area for approximately 15 minutes, take special note of the horizon line. You might just peak Denali or Mt. Deborah! After returning to the helicopter, you’ll have another short flight back to the helicopter base for a total flight time of 15 minutes. So strap on your cameras, you’ll want photos to remember this one, and venture into the Tundra!
