ShoreTrips says...

The Misty Fjords National Monument has been carved to impressive perfection by millions of years of glacial activity. It will take you only the blink of an eye to appreciate nature's handiwork.

The Misty Fjords National Monument offers everything that "means" Alaska. The only way to take in the true majesty of this pristine wilderness is by floatplane. Equipped with a unique in-flight communications system that allows passengers to easily interact with the pilot, the floatplane will fly over some of the planet's most fascinating landmarks.

The soaring cliffs, sawtooth ridges blanketed in trademark mists, sky-blue lakes, endless waterfalls, icy saltwater fjords, and miles of glacier-carved gorges cannot be appreciated any other way.

And while you take in the enormity of the Misty Fjords National Monument from above, remember to keep an eye out for wildlife below, including burly brown bears, agile mountain goats, harbor seals, and humpback whales.

The highlight of this tour will be landing on a pristine fjord to view the breathtaking scenery from water level. You will have the opportunity to get out and stand on the floats of the plane, with a waterfall just over your shoulder. It will be an experience that you won't soon forget!
