The crew at Fly Denali were all friendly, helpful and knowledgable. Had a beautiful and informative flight to the glacier. Landings and take-offs were smooth, so was the flight. The pilot offered to take pictures of each of us with the plane on the glacier. The whole flight was super scenic. Flew us close to Denali as well for a... More

My wife and I booked this excursion months ago based off of positive reviews we read. We today, July 27 we hopped on the shuttle provided by Fly Denali and the great experience started there with our excellent driver, Mike who helped us with a non-related preflight issue (excellent customer service). Mike brought us and other guests to Healy airfield... More

I have been looking forward to this tour since March, and my expectations were exceeded. When the mountain appeared it was a moment where my brain was unable to describe the scene my eyes were sharing. My moment almost did not happen because the weather did not cooperate on the day I was scheduled. Fly Denali, Inc worked with me... More

Absolutely awesome flight & experience! We loved our flight thru Denali Pk & landing on Ruth glacier. Views were amazing. Our pilot, Ben, was incredible. He was a knowledgeable & a skilled pilot. This flight in a 8 seat prop plane was a stretch for me but Ben made me feel safe & confident. His experience level was outstanding. Highly... More

We had a blast flying through the majestic mountain ranges and viewing the glaciers. The pilot was very professional and knew so much about the area and even helped us spot wildlife. It was a once in a lifetime experience that i will never forget.

As far as the experience goes, this was absolutely amazing and I so much want to give it a five but I can't for a reason that I'll explain. We did the Denali flight with the glacier landing. If you are on the fence about doing this because of the high cost, and you can afford it but are not... More

What to know: we went on the best weather forecast from our time there. I think morning is better overall. We went late June and were able to book after checking forecast finalizing just a day or so before. The pilot was great. We saw Denali as soon as we got up and had amazing views the whole time. The... More

We were one of the fortunate ones. We had a beautiful virtually clear day. We were able to land on Ruth Glacier in the "Amphitheater." What spectacular views of Denali we had from there. This was very near the Don Sheldon Mountain House, and we even saw the people sitting outside who were staying there. We were then able to... More

We took an 8-seater plane which landed on a glacier at the base of Mt. Denali. The hour ride over was gorgeous going from green mountain ranges to snow-capped peaks. Hung out on the glacier for a half-hour in shorts and t-shirts, beautiful sunny weather. The wispy cloud obscuring the peak cleared for a few minutes so we did indeed... More
