Add To Plan

Discover magnificent Misty Fjords National Monument in a DeHavilland Beaver floatplane, the world's most famous bush plane. View some of the most spectacular scenery in Alaska from the comfort of your window seat. Enjoy a personal pilot narration with individual headsets on this once in a lifetime experience.

A highlight of your tour will be an exhilarating landing on an alpine lake or remote fjord. Step out onto the pontoon with your pilot to enjoy the fresh mountain air, eagle calls, and breathtaking scenery. The monument is home to some of the most dramatic scenery in Alaska. Boasting 2.3 million acres, it is almost four times the area of Rhode Island. Only by air can you fully appreciate the dramatic beauty of land slowly crafted by the hands of nature over tens of thousands of years. Massive glacier action created this ice-rimmed wilderness. See majestic fjords, cascading waterfalls, jewel-like lakes, and abundant wildlife. Marvel at sheer walls of granite plunging over 3,000 feet into the fjords, lush forests of spruce, hemlock and cedar clinging to snowcapped peaks, in this land of incredible natural beauty and rugged grandeur. See New Eddystone Rock, a striking remnant of early geological activity, at the entrance to spectacular Rudyard Bay. Your pilot will fly over the glacier carved fjords, beautiful river valleys, and pristine mountain lakes. The dramatic Misty Fjords terrain is home to a multitude of wildlife. Visible only from the air, see the splendid 1,000 foot waterfall flowing from Big Goat Lake, which was named for the region's concentration of mountain goat.

Flight time is approximately 1 1/4 hours with an approximately 10-minute water landing. This tour operates under special-use permit from the U.S. Forest Service.
