The Experience

Book ButtonSoutheast Alaska’s Misty Fjords National Monument is just a short flight from Ketchikan, allowing you unbeatable access to this pristine wilderness area.  Soar above this majestic work of nature with a unique personalized tour from the air.  3,000 foot granite walls that are fractured by time and scoured by glaciers thousands of years ago, plunge thousands of feet into deep fjords. The misted mountains lift snowfields and wildflowers above the tree line. Waterfalls cascade out of rock clefts and disappear into the forest slopes.  The lush mountaintops covered with ancient green trees clinging to the steep slopes while high valleys cradle picturesque lakes. Just when you think you have hit the peak of your experience, you will touchdown on a salt water fjord or mountain lake and feel the colossal beauty with all of your senses.

  • Cascading waterfalls pouring from misty mountains
  • Pristine untouched wilderness boasting once in a lifetime photo opportunities
  • Personalized narration – no recorded tracks
  • Interactive two-way communication during the flight
  • Possible wildlife sightings often spotted in the area
  • 1.5 hour tour with up to a 20 minute landing

The Amenities

You’ll be able to learn all about the magnificent Misty Fjords through the live narration and conversation with your pilot, Steve or Mike.  Every passenger is provided a voice activated headset that is designed for aviation and allows communication between you, the pilot, and others onboard. During each flight, we will touchdown on either a remote mountain lake or a calm saltwater inlet.  When the weather permits, we have the flexibility to alter itineraries and cater to personal preferences. This ability allows the opportunity to view nearby whales, watch bears fish in the wild, celebrate a special occasion or simply spend as much time as possible in this unique landscape.  We are often able to take the airplane to shore, giving you the opportunity to step out and enjoy the beauty, take priceless photos or simply breathe in the freshest, most fragrant air anywhere.

Protected Wilderness

The Misty Fjords National Monument landscape and the living things in it are a protected 2.3 million acres.  The area has been managed by the U.S. Forest Service continuously since it became a wilderness area in 1978.  Your pilot, Steve or Mike, will call your attention to any spectacular Alaskan wildlife often seen in the monument and the Tongass National Forest. Sightings may include brown and black bears, mountain goats, bald eagles, orcas and humpback whales. On the occasion that wildlife is close by, photo opportunities will be afforded right from the floats of the plane!  By the time you begin the journey back to Ketchikan, you will have made memories to last a lifetime.
