Beautiful Scenary - Great way to see Denali without sitting in a bus!

We did not have reservations but they quickly were able to arranged a flight for us. I really liked the twin engine it was fairly fast, but did not work for a glacier landing but could get all the way around Big D!

Denali Air runs a 1 ½ hour plane ride over Denali Park. We did not have the patience or want to take the time to ride the bus for 6-11 hours through Denali. The plane ride provided an incredible view of the mountains and valleys in the park. Even for someone that hates heights, the ride wasn’t scary at all... More

Really enjoyable trip up, over, and around Denail. An experienced pilot, chatty, friendly, and knowledgeable, in a small plane. Great Photo op. They go out of their way to maneuver the plane in and around the glaciers and the peak itself. Just something not to be missed if you can afford it. A bit pricey, but worth every penny

We were blessed with a clear day, beautiful sights, and Bob with one "o" as our pilot. We felt like we could reach out and touch the mountains. Will do it again if ever in the area.

It only took us a few minutes after takeoff before we were flying over Denali National Park & Preserve. Just a few puffy clouds to add perspective. BEAUTIFUL overall...and then we saw Denali peeking (peaking?!) through the clouds; incredible sight! And then we got closer & closer, with pilot Bob taking us on a circuitous route to see beautiful views... More

What a breath taking flight even though it lasted just over 1 hour. A very knowledgeable pilot definitely adds to the flight. Easy access to the park and a safe experience to fly up and over the main portion of the National Park. Add this to a Denali Land Tour and you get a better feel for the vast land... More

The pictures say it all and the pilots at Denali Air were outstanding. The entire flight was magnificent. Dan our pilot was extremely informative sharing details about the various mountains/glaciers. Highly recommend this trip.

This sightseeing flight was an amazing experience, and we loved it! The company sends a bus to collect everyone from their hotels and take them to the airfield, and deliver them back there at the end of their flight. When we arrived at the airfield, we were told that three planes would be going up, and our pilot was to... More

We returned from our day long adventure in Denali park to discover that our flight time from Anchorage had been changed and the bus trip back would not get us to the Anchorage airport in time. Frantic phone calls to bus company, car rental, etc. were to no avail. I called Denali Air and they not only gave us a... More

A side trip we booked while in Alaska on the Globus bus tour was a fixed wing plane trip around the mountains near Denali. We flew so close to the mountains as to spot Dahl sheep on the mountain cliffs! Our pilot, Bob was so knowledgeable, narrating sights during the flight, specifically giving us incredible views, flying low among the... More
