Flew in at sunrise on a cloudless day and toured around the NE part of Denali (mt summit). It could not have been a better flight! Greg, the owner, flew me in and gave me the prime tour!

Flying from the Backcountry Lodge back to the park entrance was the perfect way to end our time in Denali.

Kantinsha Air taxi is also announced during dinner time night before. Next day a van comes and picks up passengers from the backcountry lodge. The plane flew between North and South peaks at an altitude around 10000 feet. North peak was completely covered with clouds but we could clearly view the south peak which was not covered by clouds..

Thanks for taking time to write us a review. Every flight is a bit different- I personally have come to actually enjoy the aesthetics of the clouds near/around the peaks. Glad you enjoyed your flight. More

We didn't plan on taking this private plane back after spending four days at the Kantishna Road House, but, dreading the long bus ride to park HQ, we ignored the cost and decided to try this. I can say, without a doubt, that the one hour flightseeing trip from Kantishna to the Denali Park HQ in a tiny, single engine,... More

Kantishna Air is defititely the right way to see Mt. Denali and the surrounding mountains and glaciers. Even though the day we went it was cloudy (hence the 4-star rather than 5), we nonetheless saw Denali peak. But the flight was spectacular. Our pilot Roger was great. He flew us over everything we wanted to see. He did an ongoing... More

Roger is so great! We are so glad you enjoyed your flight with us even though the weather wasn't ideal for you :(. We try all sorts of weather dances... we are still narrowing down which of them are the most effective- until we get that science figured out we are subject to the trends of mother nature!

We took a bus tour to the Denali Back Country Logde then used Kantishna Air for a flight back to the park entrance. Our pilot was great, flying and explaining all we were seeing over the mountains. Don't miss this if your here, Spectacular and beats the bus ride back!

Greg, the owner, picked us up and took us to his 5 seater Cessna at 8PM. We flew to Mt. Denali and flew all around it. Breath-taking!! Then watching the sunset was extra special. What a thrill.

There are so many different lightings to view the mountain under... I have to say that the alpine glow found around sunset is by far my favorite. Glad you enjoyed your experience with us. Thanks for taking the time to write us a review! More

We greatly enjoyed our flight around Mt. Denali. Our pilot was competent, friendly and knowledgeable and he took us up to 12,000 feet to view the mountains. Highly recommend.

The flight we took right up to the mountain was Bucket list worthy! The pilot got us right up close to rock, glacier, OMG words fail and I'm a professional writer. It's a 7 seater, so a bunch of couples and everyone had a great view out a window. Totally worth the $200+ it cost.

We had such a great flight with this company. The pilot was friendly & knowledgable. The views were breathtaking and the best thing: we got to see Denali (aka Mt McKinley)! It was so exciting. A day my family will never forget. Great thing to do while in Denali
