Flightseeing In Alaska

The State of Alaska is made up of giant mountain ranges, massive glaciers and literally thousands upon thousands of acres of unspoiled wilderness. Tiny villages, picturesque mountain communities and modern cities are scattered throughout this untamed region of the U.S. Early residents of Alaska had a hard time getting around; to say the least. However, that all changed with the invention of the personal aircraft. People who lived out in the vast wilderness could now fly to larger cities and town for supplies. Journeys that used to take days could now be completed within hours. The time saving abilities of the airplane eventually lead to a whole new type of tourism in Alaska...Flightseeing.

Today citizens and travelers alike can explore, view and experience Alaska’s wonderful treasures in a safe convenient manner. From the top of Mt. McKinley, to the monstrous active glaciers, to the vast Alaskan interior, everyone visiting Alaska now has the opportunity to say, “Been there…done that.”

Flightseeing has many different forms; some tours are done by helicopter and others by airplane or seaplane. Visitors can book flightseeing tours that take as little time as ½ hour or as long as 8-days. There are flightseeing tours geared to every interest such as fishing, hiking, hunting, glacier climbing, photography and wildlife watching. Overnight tours include lodging in some of the more secluded areas of the state, many within National Park boundaries. Hunting and fishing flightseeing tours are usually piloted by a guide that knows the area. They are able to fly guests the best places for their chosen activity. Guests are also shown the right techniques to use in the area in an effort to maximize their hunting or fishing success in the Alaska wilderness.

Flightseeing tours that are geared toward nature include hiking stops and photography stops. Travelers spending a day or week on this type of flightseeing tour will be treated to several animal sightings, including brown and black bear, moose, seals, walrus, wolves and more. Flight tours that include hiking will provide visitors an opportunity to see magnificent waterfalls and incredible mountain views. Some tours will drop hikers on top of a glacier and leave them to explore for a few hours.

Recently, flightseeing tours have become an option for wintertime travelers to Alaska as well. These tours are generally more nature orientated and include photography stops for wolves and other animals found wandering through the dark cold Alaskan winter.
