I’m always a bit hesitant to schedule flightseeing tours (due to an experience many, many years ago) but decided to give it a try again on this trip. I’m so very glad I did!! The views were amazing!! Our pilot was great and I’d fly with him again anytime. He was very conscientious of our wellbeing throughout flight. He pointed out specific areas of interest and details about the glaciers and mountains. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to complete the glacier landing as originally planned. I appreciate the agency’s communication regarding the safety concerns which were communicated with us prior to the flight. It was was a great experience from check-in to chevk-out. Would love to fly with them again if I’m able to return to Alaska. Thanks Talkeetna Air for a great experience!!


A once in a lifetime experience. Definitely the best way to see Denali. Had a glacier landing on Ruth Glacier for about 25 mins which was great. The pilot was excellent and so was all of the staff at the office. Booking was super easy, they were easier to communicate with than the other tour company in the city. I had to move my date once because of a conflict in travel plans, and then I had to move it a second time as I was the only person booked for another trip. They were very easy to accommodate my travel plans.


We really enjoyed our flight! It was a little cloudy in Talkeetna but the mountain was clear. Such an amazing part of our trip! Our pilot Clay was very knowledgeable.


Clay, (the pilot) was very professional and a most excellent pilot as well as tour guide. Highlight of my stay, and I will be telling all my friends that this is a must do on their trip to Alaska! Pictures never do this tour justice! You have to experience it! Russ H.


My family really enjoyed flying over Denali and landing on the glacier was a super cool experience. I highly recommend it!


This flight is something one should do at least once in a lifetime. It is life-affirming, life changing in a way. Highly recommended and my son and I so appreciated Pilot Paul's mastery of both flying and storytelling. Can't wait to go again, soon! Mark in Montpelier, Vermont

This was truly one of the most amazing experiences we have ever had. Our pilot, Leah, was amazing, and it was a truly unforgettable experience.

The staff were terrific and the scenery gorgeous. Felt like I was "in" the mountains. Its a rare and unique experience to be close up in such a breathtaking landscape


Best glacier landing experience during the fall season. Visited during October for northern flights but got to know the winter explorer is open. This was once in a life time exp for us


Ok, ladies and gentlemen… this tour is an ABSOLUTE YES during your visit to Alaska. I am not much of a plane trips lover and I was doing this one mainly for my hubby… and I can’t stop thinking about it!! It was one of the most incredible things that I have experienced… We flew in between layers of clouds, we flew into a valley between vertical cliffs and made an incredible U-turn at the end of the valley, we witnessed amazing views during the whole flight… « Wow » is the best description of this experience! Don’t miss it!!
