Charter planes and Flightseeing tours: Flightseeing is a must in Alaska. It's an unforgetable experience. Plan for about $100 USD per hour per person (1 hour flightseeing for two people = $200). Helicopters make my stomach upset, but you can actually land and walk around in a remote location or a glacier!
