5 Remote Trips that Feature Small Plane Adventures


Prepare for takeoff! These five trips take you around the world in some of the coolest aircraft on earth.

 
 
 
 

Here at Outside GO, we’re no strangers to adventurous transfers by train, plane, and automobile. But there’s just something especially exciting about flying to and from a remote destination by aircraft—especially when that aircraft is a historic seaplane built in 1938, a helicopter that takes you to epic trailheads in the Last Frontier, or a specially equipped plane that delivers you in a jiffy to the ice of Antarctica. Here are a few of our favorite plane (and heli) adventures from around the globe.

Discover Alaska's Remote Interior by Seaplane and Heli

Adventurous water landings and unparalleled hiking access

 

$9,749 | 7 DAYS

 
 

If you have always dreamed of venturing deep into Alaska’s remote backcountry to see uncharted terrain and wildlife galore, but don't want to totally rough it, this is the trip for you. Join us on this week-long trip that takes you through some of Alaska’s most scenic interior and coastal regions. Each day you will get to play outside and explore the extensive Alaskan wilderness, but each night you will get to return "home" to rest in your plush cabin.

EXPERIENCE TOTAL ANTARCTIC IMMERSION

...BUT SKIP THE DREADED DRAKE PASSAGE

 

$13,485 | 8 DAYS

 
 

If you aren't one to waste time, this 8-day itinerary is for you. The Antarctic XXI is the first of its kind to offer an air-cruise combo allowing you to skip over the rough two-day voyage across the Drake Passage by taking a quick two hour flight instead. You will land in the South Shetland Islands, where the Ocean Nova ship will be waiting for you—the vessel that will carry you across frigid waters into an adventure you've never imagined possible.

FEATURING CLASSIC BUSH-HOPPING SMALL AIRCRAFT

 

$9,770 | 14 DAYS

 
 

This 14-day itinerary takes you through some of the key areas in Kenya that go well beyond the tourist track to some of our favorite places in the country. You’ll get to explore a Maasai-owned camp in the Masai Mara, sensational Borana Lodge overlooking Mount Kenya, safari-style treehouses on Samburu country, and a beachfront finale at Manda Bay—all while experiencing thrilling bushplane rides across the vast African landscape.

THERE'S ONLY ONE GREAT CANADIAN SAFARI

SEE THE BEST OF BRITISH COLUMBIA BY HISTORIC PLANE AND HELI

 

$9,595 | 9 DAYS

 
 

Our nine-day itinerary takes you to remote locations where you won't get cell service even if you try. Starting from a plush base camp in Vancouver, you'll fly over tremendous mountain peaks to Tweedsmuir Park Lodge to encounter bears and the laid-back lifestyle of a place unspoiled by tourists. Then you'll sweep across ocean inlets to Nimmo Bay, landing belly-first in the water in a seaplane with as much character as the outpost itself. This is the ultimate adventure and the very best of British Columbia, and it's all yours.

THIS IS NAMIBIA: STARS ABOVE, SAND BELOW

JUMP ACROSS SWEEPING SAND DUNES ON THE WING

 

$15,895 | 10 DAYS

 
 

This breathtaking air safari takes you on a sweeping tour of the natural wonders and diverse wildlife to be found in arid Southwestern Africa. Your odyssey begins on the wing, giving you an eye-opening vantage of Namibia’s colossal, undulating dunes. From here you head north, past abandoned diamond mines, along the legendary burning shore of the treacherous Skeleton Coast, once known for the endless bones left behind by whalers.
