Discover Misty Fjords National Monument, the nation’s second largest wilderness region. Slowly crafted by nature over tens of thousands of years, it spans over a two million acre remote area. Board an authentic Alaskan floatplane and soar along the Ketchikan waterfront of Tongass Narrows then ascend to this enchanted monument that offers dramatic sights on a grand scale with sheer granite cliffs, waterfalls and crystalline glacial lakes. The specially equipped floatplanes offer all the amenities to make your trip a memorable experience, including digital CD audio systems and headsets to listen to the narration and music. Upon entering spectacular Rudyerd Bay, see New Eddystone Rock, a striking volcanic spire and remnant of early geological activity.
Midway through your flight, your pilot will land on a pristine lake or the saltwater inlet of Misty Fjords so that you can savor the incredible scenery, serenity and sweeping silence of this monumental wilderness while standing on the floats of the plane. Eagles, bears, mountain goats, whales and sea lions are some of the wildlife you may observe from your guaranteed window seat on your floatplane adventure. A souvenir route guidebook will aide you in identifying landmarks and scenic highlights and serves as a memento of your trip. Bring plenty of film to capture the remarkable features of the Misty Fjords National Monument.
