A perfect way to see Mt McKinley. Our pilot Dan made sure that we saw everything we could explaining the surroundings and glaciers that encompass McKinley! We circled the summit before returning to the airstrip. The total fly time was approximately 1.5 hours

Our flight to the Arctic Circle was cancelled due to smoke from forest fires, so we decided to take this flight out to Mt. McKinley. So glad we did!! Our pilot was Bob. He circled the apex and gave us great views of Denali as well as great views of snow covered mountains, glaciers and the polychromes. Would highly recommend... More

This was the best $400, I spent and one of the most pleasurable days of my two week land tour through Alaska. To fly the mountain and see hikers near the summit is incredible. There is actually a small glacier in the form or a Sasquatch that the pilot will point out. The planes are nice, seats six and the... More

Beautiful scenery, fantastic views from the air. Our pilot Dan knew exactly where to go to get the best views of Denali on north and south side of the peak. He was very knowledgeable about all of the area around Denali. Gave us a good history lesson during the flight and pointed out animals, hikers, base camp, several glaciers and... More

We had perfect weather and saw Mount McKinley up close and personal. We flew around the mountain and our knowledgeable pilot pointed our various features, a hiking base camp, and numerous glaciers. We felt like we could almost reach out and touch the mountain. It was a bit pricey ($400/person) but definitely a once in a lifetime experience and the... More

Taking a flight over Denali National Park and around Mt. McKinley is the only way to get an appreciation of this awesome scenery. Our experience was first class in every respect and was the highlight of our whole visit to Alaska. We particularly appreciated the fact that our pilot was very familiar with the terrain and the way in which... More

Our flight around the mountain was breath taking. Our pilot Dan was very knowledgeable about the terrain and the history of the area. We saw a base camp and some mountain climbers, glaciers and the top of Denali. It was the highlight of our trip.
