Trip into the Alaska Range – Moraine Lake
K2 Aviation, a National Park Service Concessionaire, and Alaska Alpine Adventures, a Commercial Use Authorization holder, are partnering to bring an extraordinary experience to visitors wanting a unique experience in Denali National Park. Board a floatplane for one of the most scenic flights on earth combined with the most exclusive wilderness hike in Alaska! This guided and outfitted small-group wilderness experience assures complete solitude, views of towering granite peaks, lush green foothills, rivers of ice, an artisan cheese platter with foods from Alaska, and all in the shadow of Mt. McKinley – North America’s highest summit at 20,320 feet.
Guests and guides
With a maximum of 6 guests and 2 expert wilderness guides, this eco-tour combines floatplane ride that has been called the “greatest flight on the planet” with a Denali wilderness hike in North America’s most majestic national park.
Where we go
Your flight will take you from Talkeetna to Moraine Lake, located between Backside Glacier and the Ruth Glacier within the vast roadless area of Denali National Park that is only accessible by float-plane.
After circling through the Great Gorge of the Ruth Glacier your Alaska float-plane will touch down on Moraine Lake. After a thorough safety briefing and Denali orientation from your guides, you’ll grab trekking poles, a light daypack, an energy snack, and a complimentary water bottle and begin your journey up into tundra country.
Where we hike
A lush green hillside will beckon you to explore higher vistas for incredible views of the ice-aged landscape and Alaska’s biggest mountains. Throughout the hike, you will learn the secrets of this land; your guide will talk about the geology, biology and history of the area and teach you skills needed for off-trail hiking in Alaska.
The end of a great day
You’ll finish the hike and savor the peace and solitude that can only be found when you and your small-group are completely immersed within the 6-million acre wilderness of Denali National Park.
