Alaska has always had an impression of mystery…
See my photos and video below to see the wonders of Alaska by helicopter, flying over the Tongass National Forest in Juneau:
Info about the Tongass National Forest
With over 16 million acres, the Tongass National Forest in Southeastern Alaska (Juneau) is the largest national forest in the U.S.
Due to its remote location, the forest contains many endangered and rare animal and plant species.
In July 1908, the Alexander Archipelago Forest Reserve and the Tongass National Forest Park, created in Roosevelt’s presidential declaration, merged to form a forest covering most of southeastern Alaska.
The forest is adjacent to the Alexander Archipelago, Fjords and glaciers, and peaks of the Coast Mountains. Different views of nature can be seen.
Costs to the park
The entrance fee to the national park (includes access to all exhibits, films, and ranger programs) is only $5 for adults; while it’s free for 15-year-old or younger children.
Costs for helicopter rides
The cost of helicopter rides ranges from $200 to $1,500, depending on the duration of the helicopter’s flight.
Would you love to see the helicopter ride I took?
