A lot of people swear to it: the best way to see Alaska is from an airplane, and there may indeed be no better way to get close to the face of Denali. This one-of-a-kind flightseeing operator makes it easy to see up close to the Great One without spending a great deal of time.
Go flightseeing over Denali National Park in a very unique way: via helicopter. Lift off on a 50-minute flight to check out the peaks of the Alaska Range and a 900-foot waterfall as you look for bears, moose, and Dall sheep. Or choose another great tour—landing the helicopter on a glacier, putting on special boots, and going for a walk on the frozen landscape to get an up-close look at it. Flightseeing in a helicopter is much different from in a plane—learn all the benefits of this great way of checking out the Alaskan wilderness.
Denali Air flightseeing tours depart from a private airstrip just south of the park entrance, making it easily accessible to visitors. On your tour, fly through the heart of Denali National Park and all the way around Mt. McKinley, with everyone guaranteed a window seat. Listen to your pilot narrate while you enjoy the views.
Fly Denali is the only company north of the Alaska Range with a permit to land on glaciers inside Denali National Park. The result is a world-class flight-seeing trip, with landings on Denali’s glaciers.
May - September
This is the only flightseeing company with an airstrip in Kantishna, inside Denali National Park. Because you depart so much closer to the mountain than other tours, in a one-hour flight, you’ll get 40 minutes circling the mountain. You may also combine a one-way park road bus tour with a McKinley flightseeing tour for an incredible overview of the park.
