Denali Air is the original flightseeing company in Denali and offer the best odds of seeing The Mountain "face to face." Passengers on our flights see more of Denali, more often than anyone else. We are family-owned and operated and fly from a private airstrip 8 miles south of the road entrance into Denali National Park. Our highly experienced pilots possess the skills and knowledge to take advantage of our unique airstrip location as we have the ability to access either the north or south side of the Alaska Range. We fly almost entirely within the National Park, allowing for a comprehensive tour of this unique and stunning landscape. Our premier flight, the Denali Peak Experience, covers 200 miles of wild and rugged scenery from green tundra to tumbling icefalls and gets within a 1/2 mile of Denali itself. We offer comfort and twin-engine safety in our Piper Navajos (all seats are window seats) and fly 7 times a day from mid-May through mid-September. Come fly with us!

Great pilot, beautiful day- unbelievable photo ops! First week of September showed beautiful colors. This is a must see if it is in your budget! For me it was worth every penny! Highlight of my Alaska trip!

Thanks to "Bob with one O" we experienced a 90 minute private charter flight of a lifetime. He pointed out various interesting landmarks en route to Denali mountain and navigated through misty conditions to show us some unforgettable views. An absolute must for anybody who...More

In order to see the mountain, you need to do the air tour. The air tour will take you around the mountain and across the parkland. Only a small percentage of people see the mountain from the park tours due to clouds.
