Misty Fjords Flight Tour
From USD 249.00
Soar above the glacier-carved granite cliffs and waterfall-studded forests of Misty Fjords National Monument on an unforgettable flight tour from Ketchikan. With guaranteed window seating for all passengers in a fixed-wing Alaskan bush plane, you won't miss a thing as you coast over lush mountaintops and hillsides where wild goats and black bears roam. Learn about the ancient geologic history and wildlife of this spectacular landscape through via live narration from the pilot during the 1.5-hour flight.
What to Expect
40 Miles east of Ketchikan, Alaska, Misty Fjords National Monument has drawn comparisons to California’s famed Yosemite Valley for its dramatic, glacier-carved granite cliffs, impossibly tall waterfalls and abundant wild-life.  With more than 2.3 million acres of protected wilderness shrouded in fog and flowing water, visiting the area is like stepping back in time to an era before people existed and the world was new. 
The 1.5-hour flight starts with a commentary van pick-up from the dock at the Ketchikan Visitor Center, where most ships moor, and continues to the facility where you will meet your pilot and begin your tour.  Your plane, the Dehavilland Beaver (DHC-2), is the quintessential Alaskan bush plane offering up to six passengers each their own window seat.  After finding your seat, you will be outfitted with a noise-reducing radio headset allowing clear, two-way communication with your pilot throughout your experience. 
As you approach the national monument, you may see mountain goats resting on crisp snow or black bears foraging for fresh berries as you approach the 3,000 ft. tall granite walls, fractured by time and scoured by glaciers thousands of years ago.  Misted mountains lift snowfields and wildflowers above tree line while waterfalls cascade out of rock clefts and disappear into the forest slopes.  The incredible views and colorful narration of your veteran pilot and expert guide will combine to create a once-in-a-lifetime experience on your incredible Alaskan vacation.

Ketchikan with Drew

Steve our pilot was filled with knowledge of the area. We had an amazing ride through the fjords. We landed in one of the lakes and explored the area. We cruised the harbor on the way back to the dock. Excellent tour!!
