Great experience with K2. Unfortunately we didn't see the mountain or get to have the glacier landing due to weather but that didn't ruin the trip at all. The pilot showed us a lot of areas which included a lot of bear and caribou sightings. Felt safe the entire time - great takeoff and landing. They even gave us a... More

Not only was the flight one of the most amazing experiences I've had, but the customer service was fantastic. I had called on the day I wanted to fly asking about availability. I was told there was space on the 2:30 pm 1 hour flight and I should just come in. I wasn't asked for a credit card. When I... More

Do not debate whether or not you should fork over $250-$300 for the McKinley flier. Just do it! This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that you will never forget. It will move you emotionally and remind you how amazing this planet is. It sounds expensive...until you do it, and then it seems like a bargain. If I were to do this... More

K2 was very professional, friendly organized. This was the highlight of our trip. We would not have seen Denali if we had not taken this flight. The mountain from the ground was clouded in but once in the air we punched through the clouds and the angles started singing...it was crystal clear! Rick our pilot was very interesting and narrated... More

Even on a cloudy day that kept us from circumnavigating Denali, the flight was really great. After taking in spectacular mountain and glacier tours, we landed on the Pika Glacier. This was a great part of our Alaska vacation -- we would definitely repeat this tour.

Since Denali is only visible 30% of the time by local reports, you must must go on a clear day. The staff was very helpful. I was surprised how gentle the take off was and landing on the glacier was so soft. The guide was outstanding in his knowledge of the mountain and the area. Everyone told us this was... More

Our trip was scheduled to fly to Mt McKinley and to land on a glacier but weather would not permit it. The staff at K2 was excellent in arranging an alternate flight at a reduced rate. Their service and hospitality was terrific. I hope to come back some day and fly with them again.

I was so impressed with these folks. We were planning to go on a trip with them to Denali, but when all was said and done, we weren't able to go. They worked with me and it ended up a really great experience - and we didn't even fly with them.

We just took a chance on a day we could see Denali..it worked out for us. A hint of occasional cloud and a sunny clear day made this a memorable experience. It was breath taking. Fun...fun..fun
