I was a passenger on a 6-person float plane to Denali. Bruce was the pilot and he was wonderful. We took off from Lake Hood and the journey was seamless. Bruce shared information along the way and the views of Denali and the surrounding area were majestic. Bruce had us land on Swan Lake to take more pictures of the... More

Later in day weather broke so took flight to see mountains and glaciers. Pilot was great and very informative of the area. The second trip was to Denali as this part of... More

The three hour flightseeing tour to Denali National Park was not worth the $437/person. It was fun to fly in a small 6 passenger float plane and I enjoyed the brief flight over the glaciers and short landing stop on a remote lake but I was expecting more. The pilot, although a competent flyer, did only the bare mandatory minimum... More

There are not enough compliments I could give this company. You get what you pay for. From the minute they pick you up at your hotel, you are in for the most amazing, seamless, professional tour of your life. The flight on the seaplane was an adventure in itself. We flew to Lake Clark National Park for bear viewing on... More

Professional, friendly and knowledgeable! Dan, our pilot, gave us a fabulous flight over glaciers and spotted wildlife for us along the way. Answered all our questions and included narration of the beautiful area during our 1 1/2 hr Glaciers and Wildlife Flightseeing tour. One of our highlights visiting Alaska and not to be missed.

We decided for the 3 hours tour for the three of us. Our pilot was knowledgeable and he was able to answer all of our questions. We were able to land near by a glacier and appreciate nature. It was really worth the flight.

This is a *must* do if you are in the Anchorage area. It was the highlight of our trip. Our bush pilot, Mark Stadsklev took us on a unforgettable trip into glacier fields and mountain views. He is also a professional photographer, so his reverence for all the nature he showed us translated into some excellent photos. Don't miss this... More
