The flight out of McCarthy will take you through beautiful Skolai Pass and down the White River before heading west into the Nutzotin Mountains. You get to see a lot of the park on this flight.
There are opportunities for day trips in all directions out of Horsfeld or you could do a loop trip. Lakes and valleys to the north invite exploration or make the crossing of Beaver Creek and explore the hills and mountains to the south. The variety of terrain ensures that there is something interesting and challenging for hikers of all abilities.
This part of the park is seldom visited.
Just a note to say thanks for a wonderful flightseeing trip. And I also appreciated the steps you took throughout the flight for safety – when you kept all other aircraft in sight constantly. The flightseeing trip through the Tana Canyon and up over the Bagley Icefield was our favorite part of our vacation to Alaska. The sights were awesome. We really appreciated that took the time to point out the moose, bears buffalo and wolf that we saw. It was a sight that we will never forget. The views of Mt. St. Elias and Mt. Logan will never be forgotten; nor the sight down the Bering Glacier to the Pacific Ocean. Thank again for the wonderful flight. We hope to be back someday soon for another one. .
