View was beyond amazing! Being able to communicate with the pilot was an unexpected feature of this highlight of my 14 day trip.Unfortunately he couldn't land on the Glacier as planned, but gave us extra air time,plus were refunded some of the cost of the tour. Don't hesitate, treat yourself to this up close and personal experience with Denali.

all we can say is simply stunning the views and narration from the pilot were fantastic. The weather stopped us landing on the glacier but that did not take from the experiance

We had the great fortune on scheduling our excursion on what the K2 Aviation people said was the best day of 2017, so far. The mountain was in full view and the winds were subdued so we were able to circle the mountain and see it and the surrounding peaks in glorious sunshine. We were able to get within 1000 feet of the mountain so it felt like you could reach out and touch it. The glaciers were amazing. We were shown the routes various climbers used to summit the mountain. This was one of those magical tours that we will remember forever.

Mt. Denali by air was fabulous. The air was was so crisp and the view beautiful. Our pilot, Josh, really knew his stuff. We did a narrated bus tour of Denali the next day. Felt we got did it right.
