BUSH FLYING IN ALASKA

“It still has to be a bit unknown, to be true wilderness,” said Paul Claus, the owner of Ultima Thule Lodge and one of Alaska’s most well known bush pilots. If there is any place left on Earth that is still a bit unknown, Alaska is it.

EXPLORING ALASKA

At over 663,000 square miles, Alaska is bigger than Texas, California and Montana...combined. Most of that vast wilderness is unreachable by the average mode of transportation. This means that taking to the sky is often the only way to access the beauty that Alaska has to offer. Fitted with special large bush wheels, Super Cubs have long been the "Jeep of the skies" and give these pilots the opportunity to fly.

IN THE COCKPIT

Climb inside and experience what it’s like to fly in one of these unique planes first hand. They are not made for comfort, that’s for sure, but as you can see in this video you are sitting in the air with a 360-degree view of stunning nature.

FLYING OVER GLACIAL POOLS

When water melts and sits atop glaciers, it creates quite possibly the bluest color one could ever imagine. Flying across the Wrangell St. Elias National Park, you encounter a myriad of different pools, all shapes and sizes, yet no matter how many you witness, you still can’t fully grasp the beauty of these pools.

BAGLEY ICEFIELD

It’s pretty difficult to wrap your head around the sheer size of the Bagley Icefield. At over 127 miles long, 6 miles wide, and nearly 3000 feet thick in certain spots, it holds the title of the largest non-polar icefield in North America. Sit back and enjoy the pure beauty of one of the world’s most gorgeous places.
