Even on an overcast day, this was a phenomenal experience. We originally were going to pass on flightseeing as the price quoted by the cruise line was quite high. However, we were able to save about 35% off that price (for the same tour) by just showing up at their office at the airfield and asking if they had any... More

Best part of our Alaskan vacation, our pilot was great, he told about the surroundings as we flew, landed on the glacier, we got out and walked around on the glacier-took photos-and then flew back. One of the best memories we will ever have of Alaska

This is a great excursion except quite expensive. They do have well maintained aircraft but not all if their pilots are quality people. The majority are but...one is a real smartass, dry and very rehearsed and boring sense of humor and will leave you feeling quite unsafe and unhappy. At least it did for me. In my opinion, he takes...

If you are limited on time to see Denali State Park, take to the skies with K2 Aviation in Talkeetna! Our pilot took us up and over Denali and Eldridge Glacier, Moose's Tooth, Mt. Hunter, Mt. McKinley and others. Highlight of the trip to Alaska!

We (Auntie, Uncle and 10 y.o. nephew) took the float plane trip to the lake, got off and walked around for an hour, then home. The scenery from plane just amazing. All of us were in awe. Even the nephew was impressed with the scenery. We got off the plane, and were met by our guide Joan. She was fantastic!... More

This was on of the neatest experiences of my life. It was about $800ish for 2 people and worth every penny. This is a great aviation company and very professionally managed. Go there and book it.. many flights throughout the day. Plan on flying on your first day in Talkeetna because if you can't go up due to weather you... More

While traveling with my family in the Alaska area, we booked a last minute glacier landing flight with K2. The staff was incredibly gracious and welcoming. Our pilot, Patrick, was extremely confident, helpful and friendly. We flew around Mt McKinley (Denali) and got to see breathtaking beautiful views. Landing on a glacier was absolutely unreal. Patrick took pictures for us... More

We flew their first flight of the day with Daniel. It was overcast and cloudy in Talkeetna. We scheduled a glacier landing however with weather over the past several days, the glacier was too soft for us to land on. They told us this up front and adjusted the cost accordingly. On board, Daniel shared his knowledge of the area... More

Daniel took the four of us and another person on a great flight around Denali. He really knew his stuff about the mountains there and the glaciers, and was super friendly and fun. The other staff was quite professional and everything went very smoothly. Also very much appreciated their super clean facility and awesome playground facility right beside the building.... More
