Fly Denali picked my husband and I up in Anchorage and we flew in a small plane with 3 other people to Talkeetna airport. Along the flight, the pilot pointed out names of various glaciers, gave us historical information and was very knowledgeable. He pointed out Mt McKinley in the distance. We got to Talkeetna to board another plane and... More

We are a 64-year-old seasoned travelers, and this was quite simply the travel experience of our lifetimes. It was a cloudy rainy morning and Denali was not visible from the airport in Talkeetna. We had visions of lost opportunity until our plane rose above the clouds and there was Denali. It took probably 20 minutes to reach the mountain, and... More

This is a pretty expensive activity and gets your attention even more when you notice oxygen masks are required during the flight. We had signed up in advance and heard nothing but good things from others at the lodge we stayed at so off we went. The woman who picked us up was delighful and informative, giving us all sorts...

My girlfriend and I actually didn't get a chance to go since the weather was cloudy. They tried to reschedule after the first time but the weather remained cloudy the whole weekend we were there. However I am giving them 5 stars because they didn't try to fly when it was cloudy, which would have been a disappointing experience and... More

We lucked out and got a perfect clear blue sky and had one of the most memorable rides ever. Josh was an excellent pilot and host for our trip first thing in the morning. I think we were all thrilled with a cloudless day and perfect flying conditions. The staff right from pick-up to drop-off made a concerted effort to... More

We debated if to do it because it was very expensive but as the weather was so beautiful we decided we had to do it. 10 of us took off in a De Haviland \Beaver airplane and as the weather was so perfect we saw Mt McKinley and landed on a glacier near by. The views were so beautiful, I... More

We were wanting to take the Summit McKinley flight through "Fly Denali, Inc." but the low hanging clouds looked ominous. On the other hand, the sun wouldn't set for several more hours and it was our hope the weather would improve sufficiently that our flight would be successful. Mathew was to be our pilot this evening. He looked awful young... More

Fly Denali under-promised and over-delivered. They made the best of a poor visibility weather day and left us hoping to come back and try again another day!
