The best and most comprehensive views of Denali
Of all the flight tours in Alaska, this one provides the best and most comprehensive views of Denali (formerly Mt. McKinley). Each flight path is unique on these Denali tours. Weather permitting, each tour flies up to, around, and within one mile of Denali, along the famous Wickersham Wall. It is along this north face feature where our clients often recall, “I felt like I could reach out and touch it!”
Aircraft depart from a private airstrip in the middle of the Alaska Range – not Talkeetna, and not Healy. This special departure point allows for easy access to both sides of the range, as flights can meander back and forth along the spine to allow for better visibility. All seats have a window in a twin-engine, Piper Navajo and Chieftain aircraft that seat six and eight passengers, respectively. Entire flight is professionally narrated (pre-recorded, pilot supplemented) via individual one-way headsets. Highly experienced pilots, averaging over 10,000 hours in flight time. Experience 60-70 minutes of flight time. The shuttle transport is approximately 15 minutes each way for your Denali flight.
