Heli-Hiking  ( June 1st – Sept. 16th)

A True Alaska Wilderness Experience

Lift off from the lowlands of Talkeetna's boreal forest for a thrilling helicopter flight into the Talkeetna Mountains above. Step off into pristine alpine tundra, and watch as your ride takes off and fades into the distance. Feel as if you have been magically transported to a vast, open wilderness, a hiker's paradise inaccessible by any trail. Tremendous views of Denali, the Alaska Range, and countless peaks surround you, taking your breath away and putting you face to face with the enormity of the Alaskan back country. Luckily, you are in the company of an experienced naturalist guide who will show you the way and get you home safely.

Alaska Nature Guides and our partners at Talkeetna Air Taxi, Talkeetna's only commercial helicopter operator, are proud to offer you this unique wilderness experience.
