Flight-seeing is one of the most popular and inspiring tours in Denali and there are a large number of providers offering varying options and prices. It's a big investment so we want to offer you as many choices as possible to help you find the exact experience you are searching for. If you have questions or are interested in a flight-seeing tour that isn't on this page, please just ask us- we are happy to help and can arrange flights with other providers, probably at a discount!

Here is a list of the options with a short description. Click on the Option Number for a detailed description.

Option 1. Airplane tour departing from the town of Cantwell. They book by the flight instead of by the passenger, which can save you a lot if you are a group of 2 or 3. It's also a great tour to do on your way to Denali from Anchorage or after you get here. You will need your own vehicle to go on this tour.
Option 2. Another airplane flight. This one departs from a private airstrip only 5 miles from the Hostel. They use larger multi-engine airplanes. They also offer an option to have a slightly shortened flight time with an even lower price.
Option 3. This option is a helicopter flight. While similar in many ways to the airplane tours, it adds that special experience of flying in a helicopter. There is an awesome option with this tour to also land on a glacier! This is a very popular tour.
Option 4. Another helicopter option: Heli-hiking. A very unique tour. You not only get to flight-see (although short) and experience flying in a helicopter, you and a naturalist guide fly to a beautiful location East of the Park, land, go on an informative hike, and fly back.
Option 5. This tour is a Fly/Bus trip. You fly from the Park Entrance to the end of the Park Road (90 miles) and you return on a Park Shuttle Bus. This is a great way to combine a flight and a bus trip. You can add the option of a fly-by of Denali Mountain. This company also offers an EXCLUSIVE DEAL FOR HOSTEL GUESTS ONLY- click this option and scroll down to read about their special stand-by rates for DMMH! 
Option 6. This airplane flight departs from the Healy Airstrip, 14 miles north of the Park Entrance. It includes a flight-seeing tour through the Alaska Range and a Glacier Landing! Courtesy pickup and return is available.
Option 7. This flight departs from the State Airport in Talkeetna. You will need your own vehicle to be able to go on this tour, but it is a great way to stop and visit Talkeetna as you travel between Denali and Anchorage. It flies over Denali Base Camp and tours the south and west sides of the mountain and has the option to add a Glacier Landing.
Option 8. This flight departs from the State Airport in Talkeetna. You will need your own vehicle to be able to go on this tour, but it is a great way to stop and visit Talkeetna as you travel between Denali and Anchorage. It covers more terrain in Denali National Park than any other flight-seeing tour has to offer, and it has the option to add a Glacier Landing.

Option #1: Ray Atkins

What will I see?:

Fly with a long-time Alaskan, Ray Atkins! The flight circles Denali, the tallest mountain in North America, and is a breathtaking way to see the area.

Duration:

Ray gives you a 'baker's hour' tour of the mountain. (That means a bit more than an hour for those of you who were never a baker.)

With Ray, you book the plane, not just a seat. Therefore, the flight departure time is up to you as long as he isn't flying someone else.

Departs From:

Ray's place is 14 miles south of the hostel in the village of Cantwell. Courtesy Transportation is NOT offered, so it is necessary to have your own vehicle to get there. Alternatively sometimes it's possible to coordinate with other guests who have a car and share a ride and perhaps share the flight costs as well.

Note:

Ray is not generally available for flight-seeing trips after August 8 due to other obligations.

Price:

The flight is $360 for a private flight for one person or $450 for a flight for up to 3 passengers, including tax. Sorry, we can't discount this tour, but are happy to book it for you.

Even without an extra discount it is still THE BEST FLIGHT-SEEING DEAL IN DENALI. If there aren't exactly 3 of you, we'll be happy to help you advertise for additional flyers, just let us know.

Cancellations:

The weather doesn't always cooperate. Therefore, they offer full refunds the day of the flight for weather problems or if for any reason the flight can't take place. Otherwise, a 48-hour notice is required. In addition, Denali Mountain Morning Hostel charges $10 on all customer-initiated changes and cancellations.

You will 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. 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. 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 permitting, you will enjoy breathtaking views of the northeast corner of Denali, which was the original access point for the first climbers to stand atop the summits. You may also see portions of the Wickersham Wall, the steepest vertical relief in the world. From this vantage point, you will enjoy views of Denali’s sharp ridge lines contrasting with the tumbling ice of the Muldrow Glacier.

Option #5A: Denali Park Day Excursion Fly/Bus Option

2017 Tour Information- please check back for updated information about this tour for the 2018 season. 

What will I see?: 

This tour is very unique. Nearly all visitors to Denali take one of the park buses into the park and we highly recommend it. We also recommend you take the bus in as far as possible. That increases the chances of seeing wildlife and the views of Denali are spectacular near the road's end at either Wonder Lake or Kantishna. The only drawback is that it takes sitting on a bus for 12 to 13 hours. That is what makes this tour such a hit. You take a 35 (or optional 55) minute flight from the park entrance area into the former gold-mining camp of Kantishna (90+ road miles into the park from the entrance) and then a 5 to 6-hour National Park shuttle bus ride back out to the park entrance area. You get your bus tour and flight-seeing done all in one day. That's like freeing up an entire day of your vacation to do more.

This tour is one of the best Alaska wilderness tours; it's an excellent day-trip to experience Denali National Park from the air AND the ground and a great value for the budget-minded, independent traveler - like you!

An option within this option: Option #5B - Fly/Bus Day Excursion with Fly-By

2017 Tour Information- please check back for updated information about this tour for the 2018 season. 

What will I see?:

Instead of taking the most direct route to Kantishna, you can add the "Fly-By Option". It will add about 20 minutes to your flight and you will traverse the spine of the Alaskan Range to the base of Denali! View the highest vertical wall in the world as you fly-by the North Face of Denali. You will fly over 30-mile-long glaciers and see some of the most scenic areas of Denali National Park. Weather conditions will dictate exact routes each day.

Price:

The Direct Flight is $272 per person, plus $18 in tax (there is a 2 passenger minimum). Including the Fly-By it is $367, plus $18 in tax.
Book through us and you pay $258 per person, plus $18 in tax, or with the Fly-By it is $349 per person, plus $18 in tax*

Bonus:

If you are a party of 3-5 persons, then they will upgrade your tour to include the Fly-By FOR FREE! If that is your situation, we will happily book your tour with the fly-by option at the discounted rate of $258 plus $18 tax per person.

All prices include flight, bus ticket and park entrance fee.

*For parties of 2 people, we can only book and charge you for the Direct Flight. If you want to add the Fly-By option to your tour, let the tour provider know when you check in for your flight. If they are able to match you up with other passengers who would like to do the Fly-By tour as well, they will upgrade your tour for you. If they are unable to find additional passengers to help share the cost of the tour, then to add the Fly-By they will charge you the additional $95 to upgrade your tour at check in. Please keep in mind that there is a possibility that the Fly-By may not be available for those who have not booked and paid for it in advance as a group of 3-5 people.

Option #5C: Denali Park Day Excursion: Standy-By Seat

2017 Tour Information- please check back for updated information about this tour for the 2018 season. 

This tour option is EXCLUSIVE to guests of Denali Mountain Morning Hostel ONLY! Fly stand-by on the Denali Park Day Excursion for just $115! This is by far the cheapest way to experience flight-seeing in Denali! This deal is for stand-by seats ONLY. If the tour provider has any open seats on the plane, they'll fill them with hostel guests and you can hop on this tour for super cheap! Flights are based on stand-by availability only, so you've got to be willing to go to the airstrip and wait and see if there are any open seats. We will tentatively book you onto the tour and the tour provider will pencil you into their schedule. If there are still open seats once it's time for the flight, you're good to go! They will decide at the time of the flight if they can add in the fly-by tour of the mountain or not, based on how many seats on the plane have been filled. If you are not able to fly stand-by because the plane is full, we can tentatively reschedule you or we will refund your card for the full cost of the tour.  

Price:

 $115! This price is SO discounted that we can't discount it any further, but we are happy to book it for you at our exclusive special rate! Tour price does not include park entrance fee or bus pass from Kantishna back to the park entrance.

Duration:

Without the fly-by this is a 35-minute direct flight through the park, with the fly-by it's an additional 20-minutes.

Flight Times:

12:00 PM from an airstrip near the Visitors Center/Train Station, at the entrance to the park. CHECK IN TIME FOR THIS FLIGHT BEGINS AT 11:00 AM.

Other important information:

Bring water, lunch, a warm layer, and rain gear. There are NO services available in Kantishna. You will arrive in Kantishna between 12:35 and 12:55 PM. Bus schedules can change, but according to the current schedule, there is a bus leaving Kantishna at 1:50 PM and one leaving at 2:00 PM. They arrive at the Wilderness Access Center (WAC) at the park entrance at approximately 7:15 PM and 7:40 PM. The last hostel shuttle picks up at the WAC at 9:30 PM. Courtesy Transportation is not offered, but you can get to the airstrip by free shuttle, ask us. If you have your own transportation, there is also a bus scheduled to leave Kantishna at 5:00 PM arriving at the WAC at 10:15 PM, too late to get a ride on our shuttle. Again all the times are approximate and change so you need to keep updated on the latest schedule information which you can find HERE.

Cancellations:

Cancellations more than 30 days prior will receive full refund less the provider's fee of $40.00. Cancellations less than 30 days prior will not receive a refund. In addition, Denali Mountain Morning Hostel charges $10 on all customer-initiated changes and cancellations.

This tour covers more of Denali National Park than any tour available. Cross the crest of the Alaska Range to the northern stretches of the 6 million acre Park. Fly over historic gold mine country and maneuver into the shadow of the Wickersham Wall, the 14,000-foot north face of Denali Mountain, one of the largest walls in the world. Return to the south side where you will descend into the landscape surrounding the Ruth Glacier and soar through the Great Gorge. 

An option within this option: Option #8B: Grande Denali Tour with Glacier Landing

Add a glacier landing to your flight and experience the excitement of standing among the great peaks of the Alaska Range! To actually step out onto the snow of the Alaska Range's glaciers and breathe the crisp, clean mountain air is the only way to truly grasp the enormity and wildness of the glacial landscape. Your pilot will be happy to take photos and answer any questions while you bask in the magnificent scale of the peaks that surround you. Please be aware that safety is our first priority, and therefore glacier landings may be subject to cancellation or change of location according to the pilot's evaluation of weather and glacier conditions.

The flight departs from the State Airport in Talkeetna. You will need your own vehicle to be able to go on this tour, but it is a great way to stop and visit Talkeetna as you travel between Denali and Anchorage.
