We had a 1 hour flightseeing tour up close to the mountains and glaciers. It was a crystal clear day and our pilot introduced us to so many amazing features of the Alaska Range. The next day we flew from Kantishna to Ancourage to catch our flight home. We had another pilot who was equally informative and capable. He also... More

Our experience with KAT was as transport rather than sightseeing. Rather than return to Anchorage via 11-plus hours on buses, we decided to use KAT to get us from the lodge to the city. (Of course, we also hoped we'd be routed in such a way to see Denali on the flight.) Weather for the three days of our back... More

Thanks so much for taking the time to write this review. For obvious reasons we often get the question "what happens if there is bad weather?". This is a great example of what will happen. Our team works with guests to re-route to the best option possible. Again, thank you for the review and we hope you come see us... More

With the constant rain and clouds during our visit, a small opening occurred for a flight tour of the mountain and what a great thing to do with this exceedingly competent service. We were weighed and hurried into the plane and given all the briefing so we could get up to the mountain as quickly as possible with the constantly... More

Absolutely incredible experience. Greg the owner and Roger our pilot ( and the rest of the crew too) were great and very professional and honest. We actually had our scheduled flight cancelled due to poor viewing weather, and they worked with us and our schedule to try to get in the air at the next good viewing opportunity. It was... More

This is a must when visiting Denali National Park! Since the peak of the mountain is often covered with clouds, being in the plane offers unparalleled views. Bring your camera because you will have the opportunity to take pictures of the most breathtaking scenery in the world. Shawn, our pilot, not only did a great job getting us close to... More

My friend and I recently took the 1 hour flightseeing/6 hour bus ride day trip through Denali park! The overall trip was incredible in terms of being able to combine both a bird's eye view perspective of the park as well as a "on the ground" experience on the bus. Our bus driver, Wendy, was a gem and she narrated... More

2 days ago we took the Kantishna wilderness road trip... The bus trip was a long, but lovely, 6 hours. My husband had decided that we should fly back instead of returning by bus. I was very skeptical but decided to give it a try. The plane was small but our pilot, Dave, was reassuring. We ended up having an... More

We chose to fly KatAir to Anchorage when we left Camp Denali. The KatAir people worked with us to get us and our luggage there. Very experienced pilot who provided lots of information about the area and scenery we flew over. Great experience!
