I don't understand those travelers who visit Denali national park without taking the plane. It provides super nice view from the sky. Glaciers, mountains, rivers, trees, and if you are lucky, you might spot some wild animals.

While it was raining at the Princess Lodge, the skies were clear above 10,000 ft. Denali Air picked us up at the Lodge on time and drove us a short 15 minutes to their airstrip. A quick weigh in and assignment to our pilot, Dan. We had a great flight, with Dan making passes on the North and South faces... More

Dan was our pilot and it was a top highlight of our trip. Everything was extremely professional and we always felt 100% safe flying around Mt McKinley. The views, commentary etc. were awesome. One thing to remember is that if it is raining in Denali, it does not mean you can't fly Denali Air. In fact, it was the perfect... More

This was by far the most breathtakingly beautiful flight of my life. I used to skydive regularly and this flight was even more adventuresome and fun. You start off with the smaller, yet very beautiful mountains and gradually transition to snow capped mountains and magnificent glaciers. We were fortunate to be able to fly around Mt. McKinley and all over... More

For an anniversary present, I sent my husband up in the Mt. McKinley Peak Experience tour by Denali Air. It was beyond words! Perfectly clear day. Great views of McKinley. Fascinating! It was the highlight of our trip to Alaska.

We flew from Denali's main road up and around the mountain. Our pilot was informative and excellent. He new all the names of the mountains we passed, their elevations and any stories of people trying to climb or cross them. The pilot had flown for 16 years. He said tighten your seat belt and he meant it. When you hit... More

Our pilot Bob made special arrangements to take us up early so we could make it back to our lodge to catch a bus at 10:00am. This flight was spectacular!! To experience the mountains, glaciers, and Mt. McKinley/Denali from the air is the ONLY way to take in the scenery. It was narrated and Bob is an excellent pilot. This... More

Words cannot describe this experience. Our pilot was fantastic and the views were even better. This was the highlight of our stay in Denali. We were lucky that we had a clear day and had the chance to fly around mt. Denali. However, the many mountains, glaciers, polychrome, and valleys were also worth seeing, So, my advice is to take...

Spent one week on a land tour of Alaska and wanted to get away from the tourist traps and gift shops, so decided to book this flight. This flight tour was the crown jewel of my trip! To fly around Denali; up and over glaciers; over and through high mountain passes; it was indescrible! Bob, the pilot, was a joy... More
