Our group of 5 booked the flight with glacier landing. Flight conditions were not optimal for our scheduled date (rainy, foggy, and no guarantee of glacier landing) so Jim worked with us to reschedule the flight for our last day visiting Denali since the company wants to provide all its clients with the best possible experience. Dave was our pilot... More

This experience was the highlight of our Alaska vacation. We did lots of excursions, but this one excelled them all. The pictures we took from the plane were great, but they could not capture the amazingly beautiful view of the landscape. Our pilot, Dave flew us to Ruth's Glacier, right next to Mt. McKinley. The absolute beauty of it all... More

We took a 14 day trip to Alaska including a Glacier Landing Flight through Fly Denali. I can truly say this was our #1 excursion and much of it was because the ultimate professionalism from beginning to finish by Fly Denali. Right from booking to picking us up from the hotel to going through the safety instructions to the quality... More

The trip was a real highlight. About an hour out, 30 minutes on the glacier and an hour back. Clay made sure we saw everything including McKinley and landing skillfully on the glacier. We saw all the highlights in the turbine powered beaver and had great opportunities for photography. A wonderful experience and highly recommended. I don't know if it's... More

They use high-wing planes, which are great for seeing the views and taking photos. The main attraction for Fly Denali is landing on a glacier. Denali's fickle weather didn't allow us to land - safety first. You only get $50 back if a glacier landing isn't possible, and there are other local operators that offer a better value for air...

We flew over snow-covered mountains and peaks and landed on Ruth Glacier on Denali (Mt. McKinley). I always felt safe and in good hands with Clayton, our pilot. It was an amazing experience! This company does an excellent job from start to finish.

The glacier landing with Fly Denali was the highlight of our trip to Alaska. We planned our own trip (which means did NOT take a cruise) and stayed at the Denali Back Country Lodge for 4 nights (wonderful). We absolutely, positively, wanted to take this flight, so we booked an evening outside the park to fit this into the schedules... More

The 4 of us were apprehensive about flying in a small airplane but from the moment Mike picked us up at the hotel, we enjoyed it. Dave McRae was our pilot and it was amazing how quickly we became comfortable in his plane. He was extremely professional yet very interesting and informative. His skills were outstanding and his care for... More

My husband and I went on this trip and thoroughly enjoyed it. The views were great. It was a little foggy and at first, we weren't sure if we would be able to land. We didn't actually land at the area we were supposed to land at, but we landed at the base camp, where people who are going to... More
