You're out in the middle of no where. I would strongly recommend a flight of McKinley since you are unlikely to see it otherwise. This would leave from Talkeetna 40 miles away (your closest town). There are many choices in flights with the top 2 in my opinion the summit flights (O2 equipted and fly over the top, not the viewing flights), or a ski plane glacier landing- if you haven't done that before. BUT if you are considering a glacier helicopter landing out of Juneau - that would be my priority with a summit flight. Talkeetna also has rafting but is an interesting small real Alaska town- worth a visit. Perhaps someone else can comment on the availability and frequency of the shuttles??? It's an area I wouldn't be in without a car for my self. Princess has a few listings at their lodge sites for activities.
