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.
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.
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.
Denali Air flights see the majestic mountain a whopping 90% of the time, thanks to the company’s experienced pilots and its location just outside the park. And, everyone is guaranteed a window seat. Listen to your pilot narrate while you enjoy the views.
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.
