Talkeetna Sightseeing Tours and Activities

Print

Talkeetna, with over 800 inhabitants, lies at the confluence of the Chulitna, Susitna and Talkeetna Rivers and is reached by a main road through George Park Hwy. Time seems to have stood still here - the atmosphere of the old pioneer days can still be felt - just a fortified road, old log cabins and houses. But Talkeetna is also a great starting point for expeditions by plane or on foot to Mt Denali. But some tourists think Talkeetna is the mystical 'Cicley' from the TV series 'Northern Exposure'. Visitors can see the Mt. Denali up close on a scenic flight that takes off from the local airstrip. Such flightseeing tours to Mount Denali and across the Alaska Range, many of them landing on a glacier, are breathtaking and every now and then you can even catch a glimpse of a group of climbers climbing to the summit. Popular are trips by riverboat or jet boat to Talkeetna Canyon, Devils Canyon, Chulitna and Tokositna River and often these boats are also used for fishing trips.
