Brilliant. My husband did the flight over the mountains with a landing in the glacier and thought it was so good he immediately booked me the next flight. It was a great view not only of Mt McKinley in all its glory but all the glaciers and surroundings. Its a bit expensive but you'll probably never have the chance again

Whilst in Denali Nat Park last year we did a flight with Talkeetna up to, over & around Mt McKinley. It was one of the best moments I have experienced in my life. The plane felt safe and our pilot, Matt was very experienced and knowledgeable about the whole area. The scenery, Glaciers, Mountains, Climbing Base Camp & the star... More

We had reservations with K2 Aviation, but when we got there we were told they did not have enough passengers to do a summit flight to Mt McKinley. When we inquired why they took our reservation in the first place they were very arrogant and unapologetic and told us "that's the way it goes." We even offered to pay for... More

We had a really bad time not with the tour but with the customer service. Due to schedule conflicts, we were wondering the cancellation policy. Since the confirmation email says please call us if you have any question, so we called them two days before the appointment. Their representative told us, "yes, you can cancel it without any fee".And so... More

The day we were to go out, it was quite cloudy (and even rainy) in Talkeetna. But since they had a pilot out when we came to check in, Talkeetna Aero knew the mountain was "out" above the clouds. (Someone else staying at our lodge had cancelled their flight with another service because they couldn't tell him if the mountain... More

We did the Denail Summit Flight in July. We debated taking this one vs one that lands on Ruth Glacier, and ultimately thought it would be pretty unique to go to the summit, which requires a specially-equipped plane to get to that altitude, and which requires that you put on oxygen masks. Our timing could not possibly have been better.... More

What an outstanding exp. flight around Denali and glacier landing- is something unimaginable! The pilot, young and energetic was so nice , experienced, great guide throughout the flight, and did great job in an uneasy task of landing and taking off the glacier!!!! No doubt this adventure will be with us forever.

This is an expensive outing, but it is truly once-in-a-lifetime. We were so fortunate to be able to climb above a low layer of clouds and see Denali unimpeded! Buy the Northern Lights coupon book ($62, I think), and use their BOGO coupon. We paid $310 for the two of us, total. We did not land on the glacier as... More
