Denali is magnificent when seen from afar (especially during the rare occasions that it is fully visible). However, there is nothing like getting up close and personal with the Great One on a flight-seeing trip. K2's pilots are skilled and experienced. The company closely monitors weather patterns around the mountain so that they don't disappoint customers by flying when clouds... More

We hike. We don't take flight tours. But our serious hiking friends strongly recommended we flight-see Denali. They recommended K2, so we gave it a try. Best part, there was no one attempting a January ascent this year so we weren't impinging on anyone's backcountry experience. We are so glad we did this! Beautiful views of the mountain and its...

Scheduled a glacier landing on a warm and sunny day but when we arrived at the landing site the pilot was leery of the local conditions. We are not faulting the experience or the pilot just bad luck. Pilot did treat us to lengthy flight around the mountain

My husband and I took the K2 Otter plane to Ruth Amphitheater on our 34th wedding anniversary. I got to sit copilot on the way there. What a thrilling experience. If you are in Alaska, this is something you have to do. Our pilot was professional and knowledgeable. Unbelievable view of Denali and surrounding peaks.

I returned to Denali with my wife and wanted some good and close-up pictures. What an exceptional trip! As a pilot, I was pleased with the safety and professionalism of the entire company while still finding the flying fun and exciting. This is a must do excursion if you are visiting Alaska.

We flew with K2 in 2013 and enjoyed the lower glacial flight but had hoped to be able to fly around the summit of Denali. On our return trip July 2015, the weather finally cooperated and we were able to check one more thing off our bucket list. Truly a wonderful experience with extremely capable pilot, Patrick.

This was our second experience with K-2 Aviation, and I cannot find words to describe the amazing experiences we had both times. On both flights we got not only the opportunity to see the magnificent Denali, we got to land on Ruth Glacier. The pilots are friendly, experienced, and very informative. I felt extremely safe because earlier in the day... More

K2 Flightseeing & Glacier Landing Flight, K2 Aviation, Talkeetna. We took K2's shuttle from Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge to the K2 facility near town. When I called the previous evening, the folks at K2 said we didn't need full winter gear, noting that they'd worn tee shirts and shorts earlier this week. It was a sunny, warm day, but since I'm...

Our flight with K2 around McKinley was indeed one of the highlights of our trip to Alaska. The pilot, whose name I unfortunately have forgotten, made us feel safe and confortable. His narration of what we were seeing below was great and very informative. We enjoyed a nice, smooth landing on the glacier, too.
