One of the highlights of our trip!

While I was planning our trip, I read somewhere that one should splurge and see Denali from the air. I am so glad I listed to that suggestion. The experience was amazing and the... read more

We took a flightseeing tour of Mount McKinley at 9AM, The tour is the Circle Denali Tour: This tour completely circumnavigates the grandeur of Mt. McKinley. We flew over the spectacular Ruth Glacier, going between the world's deepest cliffs and icefalls of the 2 mile deep Great Gorge. We flew over the Climber's Base Camp on the Kahiltna Glacier, as...

While I was planning our trip, I read somewhere that one should splurge and see Denali from the air. I am so glad I listed to that suggestion. The experience was amazing and the scenery was spectacular. It was great landing on a glacier. My husband has done quite a few sightseeing flight tours and he thought this was the... More

Many people will be turned off by the price and small airplane used for this tour, but this was one of the highlights of my trip to Alaska. You can see mountains that would take days to hike even if you could and you land and stand on a glacier! The pilot took his time pointing out sites to and... More

Taking this flight to Denali was the most fun I've had for a longtime. The experience exceeded all expectations. The view of Denali (Mt. McKinley) was fabulous. Our pilot was very professional and provided a long and continuous view of Denali. We landed on the glacier with great precision. We enjoyed at least 30 minutes on the glacier before taking... More

We booked the Glacier Landing flight. It was a wonderful, clear day, but .... There was a fire that morning that closed down the little Healy Airport. Fly Denali (through Holland America) gave us a full refund. Their staff talked us through the problems personally. Then we made arrangements for an afternoon flight two days later. Because of the rescheduling,... More

Arrived in a late rainy & cloudy afternoon in our wilderness lodges inside DNP and wishing this confirmed tour would be cancelled due to miserable weather - what's there to see anyway? We got a little worried upon inquiry that it was a GO! Fly Denali knew better and assured us a viewing of the Great ONE and glacier landing!... More

Wow! It's hard to put into words the Fly Denali experience. 3 minutes into our flight taking off from the Healy airport, we saw Denali. In all its grandeur! Wow! We had a spectacular flight! Our pilot Ron led an amazing tour of Denali on a nearly perfect visibility day! He is a very knowledgeable and experienced pilot. Great landing... More

What an amazing flight. We took off in some rain and clouds and ended up on Triple Crown Glacier in bright sunshine. Our pilot Zach is young but very experienced and knowledgeable about the area. He pointed out all the sights like Grey Gorge and where the Pacific and Northwestern tectonic plates meet. This was an expensive excursion but worth... More
