Flightseeing in Alaska

In Talkeetna, Alaska, 60 miles from Mount McKinley, four flying services have the National Park Service’s permission to land on the glaciers in Denali National Park. Although more climbers than ever are flying to Mount McKinley, most of the trips to the mountain today are flown to give tourists a look at the majesty at high elevations, with scenes like those in this video.
