Overview
More
Denali Air is the original flightseeing company in Denali and offer the best odds of seeing The Mountain "face to face." Passengers on our flights see more of Denali, more often than anyone else. We are family-owned and operated and fly from a private airstrip 8 miles south of the road entrance into Denali National Park. Our highly experienced pilots possess the skills and knowledge to take advantage of our unique airstrip location as we have the ability to access either the north or south side of the Alaska Range. We fly almost entirely within the National Park, allowing for a comprehensive tour of this unique and stunning landscape. Our premier flight, the Denali Peak Experience, covers 200 miles of wild and rugged scenery from green tundra to tumbling icefalls and gets within a 1/2 mile of Denali itself. We offer comfort and twin-engine safety in our Piper Navajos (all seats are window seats) and fly 7 times a day from mid-May through mid-September. Come fly with us!

A little pricey, but well worth it. Our pilot was very experienced...the flight was smooth...the views were out of this world.

We weren't sure about this tour at first. It wasn't inexpensive. After an hour of flying with our pilot Bob ("with 1 o") we would,have paid much more. It was by far the best tour of any kind I have ever experienced. Flying so close...More
