I'm former owner of a air charter company in the Denver area, and have done decades of mountain flying in the Rocky Mountain area. This air tour of the Denali massif was the most spectacular mountain I've ever experienced! Our flight on April 4, 2014 was done professionally and efficiently from the information call I made to the undertaking itself... More

While visiting relatives in Eagle River, AK, (near Anchorage), we took Talkeetna Air Taxi's Grand Denali Tour with a glacier landing. It was fantastic! The people at TAT were beyond helpful when making our reservations and answering our questions in preparation for our trip. Our pilot was professional and knowledgeable as to what we were seeing from the air making... More

Talkeetna Air Taxi is the very best in service and value. Friendly and reassuring pilot, tons of information on the flight about Denali and the surrounding area. Of course the landing on Ruth Glacier was the highlight of an amazing trip. If you go bring sunglasses and lots of space on your camera!

Heard this is the best year in a decade to see the northern lights so my hubby and I booked a trip to Alaska with Salmon Berry Tours. This was an after thought but honestly, one of the highlights of the trip. After waivers and slipping on the boot covers they provided we boarded an Otter and flew over Denali.... More

This flight seeing gives you a perspective of the mountain range that is breathtakingly spectacular! The view of large glaciers, deep crevasses, and majestic, snow caped mountain peaks, will leave you with an appreciation of out beautiful Earth and the most amazing pictures of your day!

We did the Grand Denali tour and had an absolutely incredible time. It didn't look like we'd be able to do the glacier landing, but fortunately the weather cleared and we were able to do that. What an amazing ride - flying right at the mountain for several minutes was amazing! The office staff was very friendly and helpful, and... More

My grandson & I spent 2 weeks in AK in an RV & we took the Grand Denali tour w the glacier landing. Although the entire 2 weeks were awesome, we both agreed that this tour was the highlight of our trip. The weather was excellent for our flight and the views were just incredible.

Everyone in my group was gung-ho about flightseeing while we were in Alaska...me, not so much. I hoped everyone would forget, but instead they researched and found the most recommended: Talkeetna Air Taxi. Still not reassured and felt like I was going to toss my cookies even as we walked into the office. But from there on out, it was... More

This operation is first class. Being a commercial pilot and turbine aircraft operator myself, I was keenly aware of the equipment and operational aspects of Talkeetna Air Taxi. Everything exceeded expectations. From the check-in process, boarding, the flight itself, the expertise of our pilot (Trent), the glacier landing - everything about this was outstanding. You will not regret taking this... More

Talkeetna: Around the Denali A few hours by car north of Anchorage towards the Mountain range lies the small Alaskan town of Talkeetna. A right turn from the main road will bring you to the airfield. There several companies offer sightseeing flights to and around the Mount McKinley (Denali). We selected the Talkeetna Air Taxi which operates a number of... More
