McGrath is located in Interior Alaska, out of the road system. Unless you arrive by the Iditarod Trail, you will have to fly from Anchorage to access the Roadhouse. Don’t panic! Two regular airlines together serve McGrath (MCG) from Anchorage (ANC or MRI) six days a week, in only 1 hour. Whatever you choose, contact us before you fly and we will be happy to welcome you at the airport.
Option 1: Fly to McGrath with RAVN
We recommend to fly with Ravn as they offer the ease of major airlines: online booking, affordable rates, generous luggage policy, complimentary on-board service (always accept cookies…). With a little bit of planning you you should be able to book one way for approximately 150 USD.
The roadhouse is 10 minutes by foot from McGrath Airport terminal.
Option 2: Fly to McGrath with AAT
You might prefer a more authentic flight, enjoy the scenic view and keep an eye on navigation instruments. So fly with AlaskaAirTransit instead for a memorable journey. The roadhouse is then 5 minutes from the air strip.
Option 3: Arrive by the trail
Be a hero and arrive by the trail! It is quite a challenge but people do it every winter by snowmobile, sled, fat bikes, backcountry skis and snowshoes.
