Tour Overview

Experience the Misty Fjords on this exhilarating 65-minute small-group tour on a DeHavilland Beaver or DeHavilland Otter floatplane.

The Misty Fjords National Monument is home to some of the most dramatic scenery in Alaska, and only by air will you be able to fully appreciate the dramatic beauty of land, slowly crafted by the hands of nature over tens of thousands of years. The spectacular seaplane features large windows for exceptional views, and individual headsets allowing you to enjoy the lively narrative and inspirational music, specially selected as an accompaniment to the stunning sights unfolding before you.

Set aside as a fully protected wilderness area in 1978, Misty Fjords National Monument encompasses more than two million acres. Discover on this once-in-a-lifetime flight, breathtaking 1000-foot cascading waterfalls, glistening lakes and low-hanging mists on your flight from the Tongass Narrows over the volcanic Revillagigedo Island to Misty Fjords. Then marvel at the sheer walls of granite plunging over 3,000 feet into the fjords and the lush forests of spruce, hemlock and cedar clinging to snowcapped peaks, set in this land of incredible natural beauty and rugged grandeur.

An exhilarating water landing in Misty Fjords gives you the opportunity to step out on to the plane's floats, where you can savor the incredible scenery and sweeping silence of this remote region.
