If you want to see sights that only mountain climbers see and experience standing on a glacier on a mountain, this tour is the way to go! The pilot was very friendly and informative. We payed for the Denali Grand Tour, but the weather was not cooperating (they can't control that no matter how much you pay!) so they modified... More

We debated spending essentially the same amount as our tickets to AK, but decided to take the plunge. And, man, was it worth it. Unfortunately the loop around Denali was socked in but we landed on the glacier, took a couple of nicely-banked turns to see the glaciers and mountains. The big Otter plan was really stable. I was fortunate... More

I was lucky enough to go up on a crystal clear evening and the pilot took full advantage of that. Our pilot was really friendly and chatty and made us feel very comfortable. The view was spectacular and was well worth the money. The flight went over the hour as the he was trying to show us as much as... More

This August we did a glacier landing with K2 Aviation pilot Jeff Babock. Once he started playing "North to Alaska" by Johnny Horton on his mini iPad I knew we had the right pilot. Awesome flight!

The pilot was not very friendly and discouraged us from talking for safety reasons but it also discouraged us from asking questions. The little he said was a bit confusing so we were not sure what we were looking at except for the person sitting in the co-pilot seat who had a wonderful view. We had a very clear view... More

Patrick, our pilot took us a flight over the flat marsh land and up to see spectacular up close views of many, many glaciers. The fact that it was cloudy and we could not see the top of Mt. McKinley did no spoil the trip. However, Patrick, one of many pilots of K2aviation, thrilled everyone with his trip up and... More

Great trip with a very professional pilot. Flew very close to walls surrounding glaciers and made a perfect landing on Ruth Glacier. Couldn't stay long as the ceiling was dropping, but flew the length of the glacier on way out. Would highly recommend.

After several days of rain, we were driving into Talkeetna to take the Hurricane Turn train, but as we topped the hill leading down into town, we were stunned to see clear skies over the mountain range, with clouds moving in but not there yet. We detoured to K2 to see when the next "round the mountain" flight was leaving,... More

If you are able to, book a flight see trip. We took off from Fish Lake in a Beaver float plane, and our captain Stan, flew us up to and through Backside Glacier. It was beautiful and exhilarating. We landed on a glacier lake and then hiked for about an hour before returning to Fish Lake in Talkeetna. This was... More
