We thoroughly enjoyed the glacier flight. It was amazing to fly so close to the glaciers and to land on one! The weather caused us to have to reschedule twice but we were thankful for the safety precautions taken. We highly recommend this activity if you are in Alaska.

I have thousands of flight hours, both in General Aviation and in Military aircraft, and this was hands down my favorite flight of all time! The up-close mountain and glacier views were just breathtaking! If you plan to visit Alaska, this is absolutely a MUST DO!

It was amazing...we were lucky enough to have a warm, sunny day with just a few clouds around the base of Denali. Our pilot was wonderful, excellentbpilot and narrator. Flying up the glacier and through the Great Canyon was a magnificent experience.

Amazing tour. Highly recommend, it’s totally worth it! It exceeded all my expectations. The landing on a glacier was also a really cool experience, and I got the co pilot seat, which was great!

This was great! Easy to book and get started, incredible pilot, and amazing views.
