Historic Sheldon Mountain House

In partnership with the Sheldon Family we are thrilled to offer this exclusive tour through Denali National Park en route to the historic Sheldon Mountain House.

This exclusive helicopter tour offers unique views of the majestic landscape of the Denali massif. Fly over the beautiful rivers and lakes of the Susitna Valley on approach to the Ruth Glacier and the entrance of the Great Gorge where granite peaks breathlessly rise a mile high out of the glacier below.

Fly by the famous Moose’s Tooth before dropping into the Don Sheldon Amphitheater and landing on the Sheldon family’s 5-acre rock outcropping in the middle of the glacier. Your pilot will lead you on a tour of the historic Sheldon Mountain House and be your guide while sharing the history, geology, and incredible views of Denali and the surrounding mountains that make up the Don Sheldon Amphitheater. The tour includes approximately one hour of helicopter flight seeing, and a one-hour visit at the Sheldon Mountain House.
