View some of Alaska’s most spectacular scenery from the comfort of an airplane window seat. A highlight of your tour is landing on a remote fjord - weather permitting. Step out onto the pontoon with your pilot to enjoy the fresh mountain air, eagles calls and breathtaking scenery. Flightseeing over this pristine wilderness may be the highlight of your trip.
Here’s how your Misty Fjords floatplane tour will look and feel. Imagine yourself in a flawlessly maintained DeHavilland Beaver or Otter aircraft. A highly trained, experienced bush pilot is at the controls. You are on top of the world, with the Misty Fjords National Monument sparkling below. This ice-rimmed wilderness was slowly carved out by massive glaciers tens of thousands of years ago. You’ll see cascading waterfalls, shimmering lakes, and abundant wildlife. Lock your eyes on sheer walls of granite plunging over 900 m into the fjords, and lush forests of spruce, hemlock and cedar clinging to snow-capped peaks.
Please note: The weather is always part of your flight plan. You may see New Eddystone Rock and Big Goat Lake to the south or Neets Bay and Bell Island Hot Springs to the north, depending on how the weather alters your route. As you might expect, this is another aspect of watching out for your safety. We are a ‘Five Star Medallion Shield’ carrier.
