This is a real must do! we were so lucky with the weather which made an amazing trip even more awesome. All very well organised and our take off and landing couldn't have been any smoother. Wonderful flight around the mountain. Pilot commentary excellent. Lots of great photo opportunities. Was great to be able to get out on glacier and... More

We hoped to land on a glacier but the weather was just too bad. They hoped that it would be good enough to land but it just didn't happen. We were in the air for about 45 minutes seeing some beautiful scenery but because we didn't land --- they didn't charge us ANYTHING! I'd recommend Talkeetna Air Taxi anytime! Great... More

Go to be the highlight of our twelve day stay in Alaska. To see the beauty of Mt McKinley from the air was so much better than viewing it from the ground up. We had a wonderful time on our Southface Mt McKinley Flightsee that also included the optional landing on Ruth Glazier. The staff was very easy to work... More

We we treated to a exciting , beautiful trip on a plane ride around Mt Mckinley and glacier landing. Pilot was extremely friendly and skillful. Company did everything in their power to help change reservations for us and make our adventure successful. Highly recommend this company for your vacation.

Great experience for our family of four. My wife was a little nervous about the safety but the pilot (Alex) was very calm and reassuring. My son got to ride in the cockpit. As you are flying above and between the peaks, over rivers and glaciers, through clouds then out to open sun, you are wondering where the heck is... More

Put this on your Bucket List of must things to do. Hard to describe just how "Beautiful" the Denali National Park really is. It was an absolute thrill to land on a Glacier at 5,500 feet. If you are in the area spend some money with these fine people. It is worth every penny!

We were in the Denali area for 4 days without any luck to actually see Mt. McKinley, and were counting on this flight to finally see it. It was a clear day in Talkeetna, but still hard to see Denali from town. Our pilot and the people at the office told us not to worry, that we should be able... More

Once in a lifetime airplane ride. We went on the Base Camp trip with the glacier option. The flight was pretty smooth and our pilot was great. We had a clear day and were able to see Mt. McKinley numerous times. The glacier landing was pretty cool and I would not pass that option up. We were on the glacier... More

My family stated this was the best thing we did on our trip to Alaska, We booked the Grand Denali tour with glacier landing. This trip was to provide various views of Mt. McKinley. There were some times when those of us sitting in the third and fourth rows could not see what our pilot was talking about. (There were... More

This is a great once-in-a-lifetime experience. Chris was a excellent pilot and landings were smooth. Had a spectacular view of Denali from the glacier on a beautiful day.
