“Incredible views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

A must for Alaskians that have company from the lower 48. We want to take everyone now. Totally worth the cost!!! We went on a very clear day in Early April. Our pilot was professional and knowledgeable. I have already recommended this to all my friends.

“Excellent Flight-Seeing Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

We had a wonderful adventure flying over the mountains from Talkeetna to Denali. Our pilot, Randy, explained about the history, geography and geology of the areas we saw. Luckily, we were able to land on Ruth glacier and could walk around a bit taking photos. On the return trip we were able to see even more snow machine tracks and cabins on various lakes in the region. There's nothing like being in a small plane to give one a better sense of the immensity of Alaska and allow one to see so much beauty in a short time span. This was a great trip!

Thanks for writing; you have stated well why flightseeing Denali is so wonderful: scenery and pilots. Randy is a super pilot and I have always enjoyed the tours he gives. We hope that you come back since Denali scenery changes to much during the year. In late summer, enough snow melts that you can see granite and more rock formation.

“Totally worth it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

I had my 14 yr old daughter and 12yr old son in Alaska for spring break, adventure style.
We used K2 Aviation on a recommendation. They were extremely friendly and accommodating. We did the Denali Grand Tour but the weather on the North Face side was a little iffy so they modified it slightly which turned out to be great. The pilot, Randy, was awesome and informative about all the sites. Questions that my kids or I asked were all answered and he had great stories to tell during the flight.
We were lucky in that there was minimal cloud coverage so we had a great view of McKinley and other places. The landing on Ruths glacier was fantastic and more than worth it. This experience was the highlight of the trip for the kids!

Thanks for writing; I agree with you that it is a highlight of seeing Alaska. We have many of our guests say the same thing; the flights seem expensive until you take them and realize what a tremendous experience they are and the price becomes way less important.
Thanks for choosing us.

“Ruth Glacier is AMAZING!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

Two things I had to do in Alaska, travel to the Arctic Circle, check, and land on a glacier. We used K2 Aviation and we so happy with them. It is cloudy and we were worried the trip wouldn't happen but a break in the weather and we were off. We only saw Denali through the clouds but Ruth Glacier was in the sun. The landing was exciting and the views from the glacier are spectacular. We were able to walk around some, take lots of pictures. Even saw some hikers dropped off and they headed towards the mountains for a hike and mountain climbing. There is a little hut on top of a peak near Ruth were they stay overnight apparently. Flying back to Talkeetna you see the glacier go from total snow and ice to just dirt and little pools of water. Don't ever go to Alaska without taking this magnificent trip!

“They deserved the awards!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

It is no surprise that they got the Best Flightseeing Tour award for three years in row (from what I know, they might get more than three times!) from the Anchorage Daily News. They are customer-friendly business. The pilot is informative, and told us about the mountains, glaciers formation and many others. I will definitely recommend this activity to whoever that comes to Alaska. No regret!
