My husband really wanted to fly over the mountains and land on a glacier. Even though it was pricy, I decided I should go, also, because it was probably a once in a lifetime experience. Well . . . I loved the trip!!! Our pilot was very knowledgeable and a lot of fun. I don't remember his name, I'm sorry.... More

During a recent trip to Alaska with friends we decided to take the flight to Mt McKinley with FLY DENALI which included a variety of sightseeing and a landing on the galcier below the mountain. This was the best tourist flight of my life and we have experienced numerous flights throughout the world. The landing on the galcier was a... More

Shuttle picking us up at the resort was on time, and driver was friendly. We were a little nervous based on the size of the plane, but the ride was surprisingly smooth. We were a party of 4, but we had another 4 with us. We all had great fun. Our pilot was Clay. He was knowledgeable, engaging, and funny... More

They offered a $1000 (for two) flight to and around McKinley, which included landing on the glacier. My wife and I were enthralled with this opportunity and even though it was costly, we felt it would be a great opportunity to experience the tallest peak in North America--without climbing it. We waited for them to come pick us up as... More

We did a lot of cool stuff on our trip to Alaska.. glacier hikes, ice climbing, etc, but this might take the cake. Clay was our pilot, and he was fun, knowledgeable, and flew extremely smoothly and comfortably. This was our first time flying a small plane, and there wasn't even a hint of anything to make us nervous. The... More

Definitely spend the money and take a flight. Views are incredible and the glacier landing is so cool. Our original time was cancelled due to weather, but we were able to reschedule for two days later. Very easy to do and people in the office are very courteous. Only drawback and suggestion I would have for the company is to... More

We did the trip including the glacier landing, on a day where we could land, and the mountain was out, breathtaking views, landing on skis is 1 flying experience we did not have. Pilot and employees were nice and friendly.. Definitely bucket list material! Bring your camera.

If you can handle flying in a small 8 seater plane, you really must do this. It takes your breath away flying right up to and around Mt McKinley!! We landed on Ruth Glacier which was also amazing. I highly recommend this trip!!

Denali is such a vast park that it is hard to appreciate it from the ground. Especially my kids do not enjoy hour long drives in a bus on a bumpy road. This flight seeing tour was amazing, and the glacier landing was an unforgettable experience.

This is the trip of a lifetime. It was simple for us to be picked up at our lodge via the Fly Denali shuttle. We were taken to the airstrip and on the plane within a short period of time. Glacier boots were provided to protect shoes. Our pilot was superior and travelled safely through the beautiful McKinley range. We... More
