We flew over the Alaska Range, saw Dall Sheep and the beautiful sights of the road to the end of the park including Polychrome Mountains which were beautiful from overhead. Our pilot included some interesting history and details about the park and gave everyone plenty of photo ops. We saw Denali from above the clouds, just amazing!

Its sort of hard to give a rating on something we didn't get to do, but the experience we did have with them was excellent. The booking process was easy. As well as the refund - no issues at all. We were picked up by the shuttle on time for the 20 minute ride to the airport. It is a... More

Visiting the park was a little frustrating because of sitting on a school bus for hours smelling dust, but this experience, on the other side was phenomenal. Flying over the mountains, landing on a glacier and walking around was like being in another planet. It's costly, but so worth it, once in a life time experience.

My husband and my friend went on the Denali flight on one of the clearest days of the month. You could see all of Denali from nearly 100 miles away! Ron was our pilot and he flew us over the road leading into park. We were all in awe as we approached the mountain. We looked down and around as... More

This flight seeing trip is one you will never forget and the glacier landing is something that the vast majority of people will never be able to do. We had an excellent pilot and the trip was superb!

Obviously, your enjoyment of your flight over Denali depends so much on the weather. We had good weather and therefore had two excellent flights. Despite the small airplanes involved, the pilots inspired confidence and we settled back to enjoy the sights. On one of the flights we had microphones as well as headphones and therefore could ask the pilot questions.... More

Trip of a lifetime. I am a blessed man who has seen and done many cool things - this ranks in the top two or three. I'll never forget the views, landing on the glacier or 747 Pass. Not very often my wife is speechless - this was one... If in the area, do not pass on this.

Our pilot was great. We were supposed to do a glacier landing but it was socked in. In fact they canceled our flight the previous day since the am flights couldn't land. Since we had the AM flight the next day, they don't know if they can land until they get to the area. So really we were lucky to... More

Wow! I have never had an experience this fantastic! A flyover guided tour straight up to Mount Denali! Trent, our excellent pilot was able to fly safely while also giving a great tour commentary while flying over Denali National Park. The grand part of course was flying to Mount Denali then landing on a nearby glacier.

It was suggested that we schedule a flight around Mt. Denali and do a glacier landing. The agent we used suggested "Fly Denali". This was the highlight of our stay in Denali!! Our entire family of six experienced a spectacular flight with absolutely terrific views of the mountaintop. When we arrived at the airport we were not guaranteed a landing... More
