We took two K2 flights, one with a glacier landing and one without. View Alaska with a new lens! Take the glacier landing flight. It's spectacular and you will not be disappointed. Talkeetna is a quaint little town between Anchorage and Denali.

We booked this tour knowing there was a possibility we might not be able to fly. We were some of the lucky few. Our pilot was wonderful, but I am so sorry I can't remember his name. There were 7 of us on the flight. Fantastic views the entire way up & back. But landing on the glacier was the... More

I was fortunate enough to get to visit the great state of Alaska in January 2015. One of the highlights of my vacation was flying up to Mt. McKinley with the people from K2aviation. The people were warm, friendly, knowledgeable and very accommodating. Our pilot that day, happens to be one of the mechanics for K2aviation. Dillon is an excellent... More

Thanks for flying with us Sharon! We love winter travelers because it gives us an opportunity to show off our state in all it's snowy glory. I'm so glad you had a great time and that we were able to share with you the beauty of Denali in January. More

My wife and I took the "Grand Tour with glacier landing (Green Tour)" with K2 in mid-June 2014. Everything about the trip was first rate. The planes are in great condition, the staff was superb, the pilots are polite, friendly, and safety conscious, and the tour that they give is second to none. Every aspect of the trip was outstanding.... More

We took an old de Havilland Canada DHC-3 Otter that held around 8 passengers. Landing on a glacier was the highlight of our 16 day trip. The takeoff and landing on the glacier was a real experience. They land going uphill and takeoff going downhill. The pilot was excellent. The plane was completely refurbished and had a new powerful motor.

Missed our evening flight time. Very gracious to get us out the next morning. Excellent pilot. Aircraft in great condition. Smooth operation. Glacial landing and views of the mountain are indescribable. This flight cost us more than our flight to Alaska from Minnesota.........would do it again tomorrow! Do not pass this up. Once in a lifetime.

A dear friend shared an Alaska experience with me. The highlight of our trip was our flight over the Mt. McKinley range. It was a rainy day when we booked the flight, the staff reassured us we would not be committed to the fee if it rained the next day. As it turned out, we had a gorgeous day for... More

It truly is amazing up there Rose. I'm so glad you had a wonderful trip and that the weather came through for you. Alaskan weather can be extremely unpredictable, but as you noted our guests are always offered a refund if we aren't able to do their exact trip. Thanks for the review! More

We had one day after a long business trip to Anchorage to get out and see more of Alaska. I asked some local people for recommendations for what to do with our one day. Several said to hope for a clear day and try and see Denali. We were so fortunate. We found a brochure for K2 aviation at the... More

Took one and a half hour flight to Mount McKinley and Glaciers early September. Highly recommend. Randy our pilot was excellent enhancing our experience with expert commentary. Office staff looked after our baggage and also drove us to the station at the end of the flight. Would do this again if in Alaska.
