About Our Denali Flightseeing Tours

Denali Air offers two flight tours of Denali National Park in the summer season (mid-May through mid-September). All flights depart from our private airstrip, located minutes south of road entrance to Denali National Park. We are the original flightseeing company in the Denali entrance area and have been operating for over 40 years. We fly fixed-wing twin-engine aircraft with large windows at every seat and all flights are full narrated via individual headset. We offer a high number of flights during the day and during the summer months we fly every even hour from 8am until 8pm. We offer courtesy ground transportation from all the Denali area hotels and landmarks.

Please see our FAQ section for answers to the most commonly asked questions and for details about our tours and our company.

Our pilots are all veterans of Alaskan wilderness flying, with many years and tens of thousands of hours of flight experience. Our location and qualifications are what allow us to provide you with the experience of a lifetime. We have been sharing our love of these majestic peaks with adventuresome travelers from around the world for 45 years. Come join us!


Denali is 80 miles away from our airstrip and even farther from the hotels. Weather conditions at the mountain will often be different from those in our area. Feel free to call for the current pilot’s reports but know that we do not make decisions based on weather until about an hour before flight time. We will always send a driver to pick-up locations with the most up-to-date information at the allotted pick-up times.

Special Needs

We are happy to accommodate passengers with special
needs. Please contact our office if you have specific questions
about accessibility. Please not that we do not have an ADA lift for the
aircraft and passengers must be able to ascend/descend 2-3
steps with assistance, as needed.

Refund Policy

Flight reservations may be cancelled with a minimum of 24 hours notice. Sudden illness or other circumstantial cancellations will be considered on an individual basis. Weather cancellations will be made at the discretion of Denali Air.
