The trip begins by taking off from the historic Willow, Alaska airport with a full view of Mount McKinley—the tallest mountain in North America. Along the way, the aircraft drifts east along the foothills of the Talkeetna Mountains and the ice fields of of the Chugach Mountains. Soon, the pilot guides the aircraft over the Knik Glacier, where hundreds of icebergs have calved into Lake George, while giving an up-close visual of the deep blue crevasses of the Knik Glacier. In the distance, guests can spot the breathtaking views of Colony Glacier. White Dall sheep and mountain goats are visible along the cliffs near the waterfalls, and on the return trip to Willow, the aircraft descends into the Knik River Valley which gives customers the chance to spot moose and bears.
