Default Flight seeing from the Mt. McKinley Lodge

Would appreciate some help finding a flightseeing trip from the Mt. Mckinley wilderness lodge area. Also would like to go white water rafting. Not sure of the distance from the lodge to the town of Talkeetna, and what type of transportation is available. Thanks, Newbie

You are 50 miles away from Talkeetna, Princess runs a shuttle. but if you are arriving by train, I highly suggest you just stay in Talkeetna, schedule your flight, then shuttle to the lodge, same for your last day, get there early and spend the day if the timing works out better. You don't want to be spending your time going back and forth too many times.

My top vender here is Talkeetna Aero, be aware of the flight differences, my clear preference is their Summit flights, not summit views.

For White water, you need to go on the Nenana when you are at the Denali Princess, only float trips out of Talkeetna.
