Tour Description

Fly on an Alaskan adventure into the heart of Denali National Park. The focus of this tour is to give visitors an optimal bird’s-eye of all the features of the Park with the chance to see Denali when weather conditions permit. You’ll fly along the snow-capped peaks of the Alaska Range on your way to the Muldrow, Brooks and Traleika Glaciers, the massive rivers of ice that flow from Denali’s east face. Your flight begins from our private airstrip on the eastern border of the Park. The 150-mile flight will cover an astonishing array of terrain, from the marshy and green lowlands, through the colorful mid-levels of the Cantwell Formation and the foothills of the Alaska Range, up to the stunning rock and ice of the alpine peaks as you near the Denali Massif. Your pilot will get you within 5 miles of Denali itself. The unparalleled views on this flight offer you the chance to witness how the various natural forces in the Park came together to shape Denali.

Weather Policy

The weather in the mountains is difficult to predict and we rely on a variety of sources to make decisions about flights and educate visitors about flight conditions. We check weather cameras in the Denali vicinity and also rely on pilot reports in addition to more traditional weather sources (radar, etc). The weather in the Park and especially Mt. Denali can be very different than the weather at the hotels/in the Park entrance area. We always recommend that visitors contact us directly to find out the most current weather reports.

Cancellation Policy

Reservations may be cancelled with no penalty 24 hours or more prior to flight time. Flights may be rescheduled, as needed, based on availability. Weather cancellations are at the discretion of Denali Air.
