We didn't plan on taking this private plane back after spending four days at the Kantishna Road House, but, dreading the long bus ride to park HQ, we ignored the cost and decided to try this. I can say, without a doubt, that the one hour flightseeing trip from Kantishna to the Denali Park HQ in a tiny, single engine,... More

Kantishna Air is defititely the right way to see Mt. Denali and the surrounding mountains and glaciers. Even though the day we went it was cloudy (hence the 4-star rather than 5), we nonetheless saw Denali peak. But the flight was spectacular. Our pilot Roger was great. He flew us over everything we wanted to see. He did an ongoing... More

We took a bus tour to the Denali Back Country Logde then used Kantishna Air for a flight back to the park entrance. Our pilot was great, flying and explaining all we were seeing over the mountains. Don't miss this if your here, Spectacular and beats the bus ride back!

Greg, the owner, picked us up and took us to his 5 seater Cessna at 8PM. We flew to Mt. Denali and flew all around it. Breath-taking!! Then watching the sunset was extra special. What a thrill.

We greatly enjoyed our flight around Mt. Denali. Our pilot was competent, friendly and knowledgeable and he took us up to 12,000 feet to view the mountains. Highly recommend.

The flight we took right up to the mountain was Bucket list worthy! The pilot got us right up close to rock, glacier, OMG words fail and I'm a professional writer. It's a 7 seater, so a bunch of couples and everyone had a great view out a window. Totally worth the $200+ it cost.

We had such a great flight with this company. The pilot was friendly & knowledgable. The views were breathtaking and the best thing: we got to see Denali (aka Mt McKinley)! It was so exciting. A day my family will never forget. Great thing to do while in 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
