Land near the toe of the Chitina Glacier, which feeds the region’s largest river. Here the river bar of the braided waters is three miles wide, and is home to moose, wolves, coyotes and even bison. Climbing moderate slopes behind the strip on a clear day allows views of Mt. Logan (19,850’), the second highest peak in North America.
Take the route along the Chitina Galcier to Ram glacier for an enjoyable excursion to a secluded campsite with exquisite views. There is a public-use cabin available near the strip on a first come, first serve basis.
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. .
