Upon checking in at a unique Alaskan log cabin, be given a weather and safety briefing and then board one a high-wing, single-engine aircraft for the flight tour of a lifetime.

Excellent view when you took a flight to see Denali so close. Captain was very professional and friendly. He showed us all the famous mountains as well as the glaciers. If you are lucky to land there, it was really amazing view with fantastic experience. Really worth it and please don’t miss this tour.

An amazing experience we will never forget. You get to see incredible views of the the whole area that just aren't possible from the ground. The flight itself was great, but the landing on a glacier was even better. Well worth the money. So happy we did it.

The ground crew and pilot were excellent. The pilot worked hard at getting us in position to see through the clouds so we could see the mountain this was the best part of our whole trip. Far exceeded our expectations.

It’s hard to imagine how it could have been better. Spectacular views of the mountains and glaciers, a very smooth flight and great commentary during the flight.

Great guides. The white water rafting was amazing.
