Wow! What a great experience! The staff was friendly and knowledgeable, the facility and airplanes were well kept, the pilot gave a great tour, and the views from the top of the glacier were spectacular. This is a "must-do" for your Alaska experience.

A first-class experience in every aspect. The office staff was knowledgeable and efficient...and then, there was the flight up to the Ruth glacier. OMG It was spectacular. The weather cooperated for great views of the valley leading up to the mountains and glaciers and the view of Denali and the surrounding peaks was indescribable. I have lived a good part... More

My spouse and I enjoyed a fantastic experience flying in a small plane and landing on Ruth glacier. Both takeoff and landing were surprising smooth. Our pilot made sure both sides of the plane got great views of Denali and of base camp. Aw inspiring flying around the peaks. Service was awesome. I would book another adventure with K2.

Although it had snowed too much the previous couple of days to do a glacier landing, the K2 team gave us options for conducting the flights up the glacier valleys and made sure we were totally comfortable with our decision to fly or not. Awesome experience for us and our pilot was great to point out all the various features... More

My fiance and I spent two days hiking the Kesugi Ridge, staring at Mt. McKinley and decided once we got off the trail, we wanted to see McKinley up close and personal. We're pretty frugal so it took a lot of debate on whether or not to invest in the flightseeing tour. At 6 pm in the evening, we finally... More

I decided the day of to take this trip. My husband and son had a reservation but I was too scared. I changed my mind and went. The pilot was great. Very thorough going through safety before flight. He gave us good narrative of what we were looking at. I had a hard time hearing it at times cause I... More

It took me 8 months in Alaska before I decided to splurge on taking a flight seeing tour of Denali. I paid more for this flight than it cost my company to fly me back to Chicago, but it was without a doubt worth it. If you are in Talkeetna on a clear day, do this! (If it is not... More

My husband and I booked a flight with a glacier landing. It was the most majestic views of Mt. McKinley. The weather plays a huge factor whether you can view the top of the mountain. Please make sure if you book a flight that the pilot has experience flying in Mt McKinley and not just flying in other locations. Our... More

This is my second flight seeing tour of Denali, and it was spectacular. Our pilot flew us around to the west, north and south sides of the mountain. The rock spires, glaciers and snow slides were amazing. We were able to land on the Ruth glacier which is part of the amphitheater. We got to spend 15 minutes walking around... More

Thanks for your review Debra! Denali is truly a spectacular sight, and you're absolutely right in that the best way to truly understand its size and beauty is with a glacier landing. Thank you for flying with us and for sharing your experience! More

Bad luck. They were an hour late with our departure and the flights that left earlier were able to land on the glacier. We were not able to land due to reduced visibility. They reduced our cost to the cheapest flight but paying over $400 (2 people) and spending ~ 4 hours to do an hour flight with limited vis... More
