Circling back around the glacier, the plane angles for its descent. You crane your neck, searching for a semblance of a runway, but the scene hasn’t changed. A thick sheet of ice, pierced by intense sunlight, is all you see below. You were told this aircraft can land anywhere. However, surrounded by only ice and sky, the term nowhere seems more accurate.
Alaska is a vast land, dominated by wilderness and dramatic splendor. As most of the terrain is rugged and unreachable, flying is simply a way of life here. Get ready to play in the remotest of places and witness what others have not. Land on riverbeds, steep mountainsides, slick glaciers and soft-sand beaches for unexpected, one-of-a-kind encounters. From discovering an impossible-to-find fishing hole, to touching down alongside Big Horn Sheep grazing on a rocky crag, this is your chance to walk where no one has before.
