Flying to Denali

This was the highlight of our trip, it was amazing. We did the bus tour in to the Denali park and flew out. The pilot was very good and I felt very safe.

As I said in an earlier review, what we thought would be a boring, six-hour bus ride into the interior turned into an amazing experience. That being said, we were looking for a different perspective of Denali National Park for our return trip, so we selected Kantishna Air Taxi. During the 1 hour flight, we were able to do a... More

We took this approximately one hour flight tour of Denali and the Alaskan range. Since Kantishna is so close, the time spent in the air was mostly to see the mountains, the numerous glaciers, and deep crevasses from this bird’s eye view. The pilot made sure to manipulate the plane so that both sides had equal viewing and photographic opportunity.... More

We flew out of the park from Backcountry Lodge and it was amazing. We were blessed with good weather and got close to glaciers and saw the mountain. Highly recommend!

We were at Kantishna Lodge and overflew Denali as the cloud bank had not lifted. It was not cheep but it was worth it. Denali is one incredable mountain that must be seen to be believed. That is why the natives call it Denali - the great one.

We thought the Kantishna wilderness bus tour the 90 miles into Denali National Park was terrific, but the air taxi flight back was spectacular. The flight is about 55 minutes back to the park entrance by the train station. But they take you up close to the mountain and the glacier valleys with a full narrative about what you are... More

Loved the flight back from kantishna to Denali cabins. It was amazing the different scenery from one area to the other on this flight. Another added benefit we did not have to take the bus back.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review for us. Also- thanks for drawing attention to the fact that, while generally speaking people have hopes to see Denali herself, even when she is not out the views of this park (glaciers, rivers, the mountain range etc) are awe inspiring in themselves!!

Okay we had a great pilot (Roger) and the weather broke just in time for an hour+ long flight around Denali peaks and the Alaskan range. So we were lucky, but this was an experience none of us in our group will ever forget. Great people, felt safe and comfortable.

We had to be flown in unexpectedly because of landslides which closed the road . The pilot was great, and they provided great service. You are flying into a small gravel strip in the middle of no where at Kantishna.

We highly recommend taking this tour out of Denali's backcountry - unbelievable views of the Alaskan mountain range and Denali.
