    What to Expect
    Check in at Talkeetna State Airport 30 minutes before your 1.5-hour flight and board your plane seating a max of six passengers. Get out your camera as your pilot takes you over Denali Mountain, formerly Mt McKinley. This flight experience allows you to see all sides of the great mountain: north, south, east and west.

     

    Some of the majestic sights covered on this flight include Wickersham Wall, Kahiltna Glacier, Climber’s Base Camp, Kahiltna Pass, and the West Buttress Climbing Route. (See below for a list of more points of interest.)

    Curious about the glaciers and want to set foot on one? Upgrade your flight package to include a landing on an actual glacier. Stand beneath the towering mountains in a tranquil world of snow and ice, before you’re taken back to the airport.

    My wife and I booked a K2 flight and it was a wonderful experience. We'd picked a day when the weather was supposed to be reasonable clear and when the day came, there were clear blue skies. Even though Denali was spectacular when we observed from a distance, it was

    We definitely agree, Denali is massive but so much better to see up close! We are so glad you had some fantastic weather on the day of your flight. We love those bluebird days! Thanks so much for flying with us and for the review.

    Incredible flight around Denali! Our pilot, Ryan was great. He flew in a way that allowed both sides of the plane to see everything. The views are out of this world!! Ryan shared lots of information - the names of all the features, the routes made by climbers, history of the

    It's easy to forget any fears when up in the air in such a beautiful landscape! Our pilots do their best to make sure both sides of the plane get the same spectacular views. We are so glad you had a great and informative experience. We love sharing the Alaska Range with our guests. Thanks for flying with us!

    Staff were very attentive and accommodating when weather conditions for my scheduled flight weren't optimal, but we were cleared for a flight later in the afternoon. Be flexible with your time as Denali weather is unpredictable and know that safety comes first with flights over

    Experience the mountain in a brand new way with K2Aviation. Beginning with the informative pilot you take flight and explore everything from Denali, Hunter, and Forker. Let time stand still as you land on the glacier and look around at this gorgeous mountain! Take it from these

    We had to adjust the tour a bit due to forest fire smoke - but was clear above 6000' and seemed we could have touched the mountains! Glacier landing was not allowed due to low snowfall earlier in the year. It still was a glorious view of the glaciers and mountains on such a
