Fly Denali offers one of the world's most unique and breathtaking experiences - a landing on one of Denali's glaciers! (formerly Mt. McKinley) The flight features nearly two hours of air time over Denali National Park and approximately thirty minutes on the glacier. You'll see all Denali National Park has to offer: taiga forest, alpine tundra, deep gorges, countless mountain peaks and glacial features. This is truly a once in a life time adventure! Our De Havilland Turbine Beaver airplanes have window seats and interactive headsets for all. Fly Denali provides complimentary shuttle service within the Denali National Park area. Fly Denali operates from the Healy River State Airport from May 10th to September 15th and is available year-round for charters or contract work.

Went to Alaska with my dad as a father/son trip, and this was easily one of the best experiences of that trip, and beyond. The staff was super polite, the planes were in fantastic condition, and the skies were clear; we were able to see Mt. Denali in full. Couldn't recommend this amazing experience--and with this company--more!

Getting that close and above the clouds to see this beauty of nature, what a gift. We had just the right conditions.

I booked the Denali flight seeing with glacier landing tour before we arrived in Alaska. My husband did this with the ATV adventure as a combo and mine was just the flight with glacier landing. Total cost for the ATV and the 2 of us flight with landing was $1064. If you just book the flight with landing the price... More

One item needs correction in this wonderful review: clients do NOT sign a release form of any kind. The sign-in sheet is to ensure every person on each airplane is properly assigned. The Federal Aviation Administration requires this for all airlines. We at Fly Denali, Inc. try our hardest to make sure that each and every client is treated like... More

We got lucky and got to Denali on a day that the top of the mountain was not socked in by clouds. The flight up and back was great. Our pilot was very knowledgeable and pointed out all the highlights on the way and back. The glacier landing went very smoothly. The equipment seemed well maintained and in good working... More

Our trip to Alaska was absolutely amazing in large part because of the incredible flight we had with Fly Denali. It was a mostly cloudy day yet the pilot was able to work his way around clouds to get us an amazing full on view of Denali. We landed on Pika Glacier which was an absolute thrill! The pilot was...

We flew over the Park, over snowy mountains, past the majesty of Denali, and landed on the glacier! Our pilot was great, the view was breathtaking, and the experience was well worth the $$. You gotta do this one!!

What a thrill! Fly Denali, Inc. provided eye-candy views of snow-capped mountain peaks on the way to an actual landing on a glacier. The whole experience was spectacular! Brian, an experienced pilot and great tour guide, flew our group over amazing scenery on our way to the glacier. I was a little nervous about the expected landing, but my fears... More

This flight on a Cessna single engine airplane to the glacier fields close to Mt McKinley (Denali) was the highlight of our trip to the Park and to Alaska itself. Denali Air is very safety conscious and we had to wait two days before the weather conditions permitted us to fly. After taking off near the Denali Park Village, we... More

I splurged on this excursion as part of a land/sea cruise. All of the reviews in tripadvisor have nailed it. If you do one thing while in Alaska, make it this. We loved it. Literally, this was breathtaking.

My husband has over 5,000 hours of flight time and has landed on every continent, but this flight and landing was a highlight of all his trips. The flight was spectacular, our skilled pilot (Ken, I think; chief pilot) was extremely informative of terrain. The landing/take-off on Mt. Denali glacier was smooth and perfect. Although somewhat cloudy, he managed to... More
