About Denali Air
Denali Air is the original flightseeing company in Denali and offer the best odds of seeing The Mountain "face to face." Passengers on our flights see more of Denali, more often than anyone else. We are family-owned and operated and fly from a private airstrip 8 miles south of the road entrance into Denali National Park. Our highly experienced pilots possess the skills and knowledge to take advantage of our unique airstrip location as we have the ability to access either the north or south side of the Alaska Range. We fly almost entirely within the National Park, allowing for a comprehensive tour of this unique and stunning landscape. Our premier flight, the Denali Peak Experience, covers 200 miles of wild and rugged scenery from green tundra to tumbling icefalls and gets within a 1/2 mile of Denali itself. We offer comfort and twin-engine safety in our Piper Navajos (all seats are window seats) and fly 7 times a day from mid-May through mid-September. Come fly with us!

AMAZING!!! The entire team at Denali Air made the last day of our honeymoon incredible. Special thanks to Abby, Dan and Bob! They took us out on a private flight, under grey sky conditions. Bob our pilot gave great insight and education about the geological wonders of the the Denali park on route to the mountain. Unsure if we would get a chance to view the mountain, Bob picked his way around the mountain peaks, assuring us he would reveal everything the clouds would allow for. After a couple minutes of persevering he found a break in the clouds and got us so close to the summit we could see climbers on their approach! On the return flight he brought us right on top of the massive glaciers and showed us their splendor, and then dropped down even closer to look for Dall Sheep before taking us back! Take our word their is not a better flight seeing option in Denali!

WOW! That's all one really needs to say about this tour. We made a last-minute decision to go flightseeing because it was such a gorgeous, blue sky day and Denali was bound to be out. The flight itself, on "Chuck" a Piper Navajo," was a bit bumpy and the interior of the plane quite warm from the sun, but the spectacular scenery as we flew over the spine of the Alaska Range and around Denali to see it from all angles ... well it was worth the slight discomfort. Make sure to take sunglasses as it gets very bright with all the snow around. We flew with Bob, who broke into the canned narration, with additional bits and pieces of information. He also advised us when he was dipping the wings and in which direction so we could prepare to take our photos. The camp at 17,000 feet on Denali was abuzz with activity. Worth every penny.

We visited in May just before everything opened up/ post covid and for the season. We were not able to get a reservation for the bus. I am sooo glad that we decided to take the plane . We flew right in and around Denali, we were so close we could even see the base camp and hikers waiting to climb. Dan was our pilot and he was so knowledgeable about the area. When I think back about the trip I will always remember this . Thank you Dan!

Don’t remember the specific name of the flight we took but this was an incredible experience. Definitely worth the price!!! We saw Mount Denali and we were flown by the owner. He’s very knowledgeable about the area. Please pay them a visit!
