My trip with K2 to the glacier was amazing! Our pilot was very informative and lots of fun! If you are visiting Alaska, be sure to check out K2 aviation and their air trips to the glaciers. Great organization with very skilled pilots!

K2 was the fastest to respond to questions I had online, and also had a very easy booking process through their website - not all of the tour operators out there do. We decided to splurge and add the glacier landing and it was worth...More

K2 was outstanding! Our pilot Stan, was so smooth on the flight and he gave great narration about the glaciers, Denali, and the surrounding mountains. There is no better way to get the glacier and mountain views than flying. K2 delivers

The entire process was perfect. Making the reservation, discussing contingencies in the event of unfavorable weather and check-in were all a breeze. The flight was fantastic! We cannot wait to do it again, soon. Amazing experience!

Does the plane actually land when you do a summit tour? Can you actually get out of the plane to "summit" Mount McKinley?

No, There would not be a place to land a plane. You go right over the ridge where the mountain climbers take weeks to hike up to.
