We took the 8 hour tour. I am so glad we did. We saw eight bears, a couple of moose, a pack of wolves, one dall sheep and countless caribou. Our bus driver was very good and made sure we got the chance to see as much wildlife as possible,

Awesome!!!! Worth every penny! Can't say enough about Eric and Fly Denali.com. "HIGHLIGHT" of our vacation. We were blessed and saw Mt McKinley in ALL its glory. Eric said it was the best flying day of the year! Plenty of flight time and time on Ruth Glacier, Eric extremely knowledgeable about the area. DON'T MISS!

The flight gave us the opportunity to see the majestic Mt McKinley at close range. It was particularly impressive when the peak suddenly appeared before us after our pilot navigated the plane through thick clouds with no visibility!! The glacier landing was a once in a life time experience. Seeing glaciers from above is awesome- it takes your imagination way... More

Our family of 7 flew with Ron, I believe in July while we were in the Denali area. Our flight included a glacier landing at 7000 ft base camp! It was breathtaking! Seriously the most beautiful flight of my lifetime. As I exited the plane on the glacier I expected to step in ice. I was surprised to step into... More

During a recent trip to Alaska, we did a trip with Fly Denali. It included a flight over Denali National Park and a 25/30minute landing on Eldridge Glacier. Every member of staff we met was very pleasant and courteous, from the bus driver who collected us at our hotel, to the friendly girl at reception, to the pilot (Chad? apologies... More

We went to Denali NP in July as a part of the AAA Alaska by Land Tour. It is such a beautiful part of the world. Went went on the park bus on Park Road to the 62 milepost. We were a part of the lucky 30% of travelers that get to see Denali/Mt. McKinley. Moose, dall sheep, caribou, golden... More

I had the time of my life. It was definitely worth the money. If I had a chance I would go again. It seemed so unreal, I couldn't believe I was actually on a glacier.

We fly with McKinley Glacier Landing... It was WONDERFUL!!!! I was unsure about this excursion due to the price, however, my husband said we are going. Two planes flew together and we landed on Kahiltna Glacier at base camp. There were 6 campers there also. Landing on the glacier and walking around up there for about 30 mins was the... More

Our first scheduled flight was cancelled due to weather. They were able to reschedule us for the next night. Unfortunately, the winds were too strong and we weren't going to be able to land on the glacier. However, the pilot, Dave McCray, made it worth our while. The flying that he did and the beautiful scenery that we saw was... More
