Explore Alaska's Majestic Glaciers and the Misty Fjords!
Exploring the Misty Fjords National Monument by seaplane is an experience you'll never forget! You will travel by comfortable floatplane and soar over majestic fjords, cascading waterfalls, jewel-like lakes, and abundant wildlife. The Misty Fjords, one of our country's greatest treasures, contains some of Alaska's most spectacular scenery. Boasting at 2.3 million acres, the monument is almost four times the size of Rhode Island. Marvel at sheer walls of granite rising over 3000 feet, and huge stands of lush spruce, hemlock, and cedar clinging to snow capped peaks in this land of incredible natural beauty and rugged grandeur.
A landing on a pristine mountain lake or a remote bay will provide the opportunity to absorb the silence and beauty that surrounds you. Your pilot will invite you out of the aircraft and onto the pontoons to breathe the fresh mountain air and enjoy the peace and serenity that surrounds you.
After your time on the water, your adventure will continue as you fly beyond the Misty Fjords to the massive Soule, Through, and Chickamin glaciers. These remnants of the last ice age are glaciers responsible for carving the monument's fjords. These moving rivers of ice up to 11 miles in length will be the highlight of your once in a lifetime flightseeing adventure. Continue to marvel at the connecting ice fields and Chickamin River Valley, one of the most wondrous vistas you will see in Alaska, in an idyllic wilderness setting. Watch for mountain goat, bear, and moose as your expert bush pilot/guide glides you over this paradise.In the event that weather at higher altitudes restricts access to the glaciers, all features of the Exclusive Misty Fjords Floatplane Adventure will be provided and an appropriate adjustment in price will be made.
