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

A trip into the mountains and glacier landing with Fly Denali is a must. Simply an amazing perspective of very impressive scenery. The trip is about 2.5 hours long and worth every penny. I would do it again in a heartbeat. Jim (the owner), the staff, and the pilots are professional, easy to work with while planning a trip, and... More

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.
