Unless you're an expert mountaineer who's capable of scaling Mount McKinley's 20,320-foot peak, the only way to get an up-close view of the highest point in North America is to get slightly higher, and flightsee Denali National Park. K2 Aviation is a reputable tour operator that flies four- to ten-passenger planes into the park from Talkeetna (the inspiration for Northern Exposure, located 150 miles south of the Denali park entrance). All tours take you up the course of Ruth Glacier, but it's worth spending the money ($295) to do the peak run, which banks into the Great Gorge, shoots between high spires of rock, and—as long as the weather cooperates—spirals up the mountain until the summit comes into view. If you get hooked on flightseeing, there are plenty of other options throughout the state.

Misty Fjords Air & Outfitting, based in Ketchikan, flies over Misty Fjords, a watery landscape that looks like it's drowning, in the Tongass National Forest, one of the world's largest rain forests.

Sunrise Aviation leads flightseeing excursions of the Stikine River, near Wrangell, where you can fly above the wide, muddy banks of the river, past the Great Glacier and the Stikine Icefield, and over the surrealistic volcanic landscape of British Columbia's Mount Edziza Provincial Park.

Wrangell Mountain Air flies over Wrangell–St. Elias National Park, an area so big, so remote—the largest roadless wilderness left in the hemisphere—that there are 14,000-foot mountains nobody has ever bothered to name.—Edward Readicker-Henderson
