Fly Denali offers one of the world's most unique and breathtaking experiences - a landing on one of Mt. McKinley's glaciers! The flight features nearly two hours of air time over Denali Park and approximately thirty minutes on the glacier. This is truly a once in a life time adventure! Our De Havilland Turbine Beaver airplanes have window seats and interactive headsets for all. Fly Denali provides complimentary shuttle service within the Denali National Park area. Safety is our primary concern!

We thought this was a splurge when we booked it from home early on. But it was worth the price and more! Incredible views as we flew over and between Denali Park's mountains... read more

We thought this was a splurge when we booked it from home early on. But it was worth the price and more! Incredible views as we flew over and between Denali Park's mountains. Landing and walking on a glacier was an amazing indescribable experience even though the weather suddenly changed from warm to very very cold. Pilot and rest of... More

This was SPECTACULAR! The flight is in a small single engine plane - 7 passengers. The weather was perfect, and that, of course is critical - we talked with many who had come to Denali to take the flight and the weather did not cooperate. For us, it could not have been better. Flying over, and through these spectacular mountains... More

DO NOT MISS - Ron flew us over countless unforgettable points. Though our time landed on the glacier was cut short by a rain storm, we felt we more than got our $$$ worth of spectacular flight time. Make sure you do NOT get the name confused with one of their competitors!!!

It looked like a beautiful day, few cloudy so much excitement. We got a great view of Mt. McKinley but didn't get to land on glacier so trip was cut short to less than 2 hours. We were happy getting to see Mt McKinley up close but disappointed no landing. Would consider price expensive for no Glacier landing.

My family and I flew with Ron and had an awe inspiring fabulous experience. Ron was very personable as were all of the Fly Denali Staff. The entire experience was positive from start to finish. The views from the sky were spectacular and the landing on Ruth's Glacier, there are no words really. Spend the money! Talk about a journey/memory... More

While we weren't able to land on the glacier, this was still an excellent adventure. Eric, the pilot, is an awesome aviator and guide!

Eric gave us a great tour of Mt McKinley and we were able to land on the glacier at the base camp. If the weather is poor, your trip will be cancelled and money refunded. We heard of some flights that weren't able to land, which is a shame! Wonderful scenery and an adventure of a lifetime. You will borrow... More

We went with Eric on Father's Day 2015. It was a rainy morning, but he assured us (our family of 6 adults) that it was beautiful above the clouds. He was right! This adventure was AMAZING. Eric was funny and confident and I never felt unsafe. He showed us everything in Denali and flew us around Mt. McKinley several times... More

I did lots of research before booking this flight, as it took a good portion of our excursion money. Emails back and forth with their office, and reading reviews online. It was by far, the BEST experience we have ever had. We have done other flights in Alaska, the lower 48, Canada and the Carribean, but Fly Denali is in... More
