Denali Air has been in operation since 1970. Our private airstrip is located in the heart of the Alaska Range on the Parks Highway mile 229.5, just south of the road entrance to Denali National Park. Our central location allows us easy access to either side of the Alaska Range, ensuring the best possible viewing opportunities.

Our pilots are all well - seasoned veterans of Alaskan wilderness flying, with many years and 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 over 25 years. Come join us!

We provide multiple departures each day for your convenience. Courtesy transportation is available from local hotels, with pick up times approx 1 hour before flight time. Your 6 or 8 passenger plane will depart from our private airstrip located eight miles south of the park entrance and fly along the Alaska Range into the heart of Denali Park. All seats are window seats, and the tour is fully narrated. Weather permitting, we'll take you all the way around Mt. McKinley itself. Bring plenty of film, photo opportunities abound on the flight!

Reservations should be made at least 24 hours in advance to ensure your choice of flights. Visit our Reservations page to book your flight now. Walk-ins are also welcome up to the last minute when space is available. The trip cost is $350 for adults. Lap babies under two are free. Cancellations must be received 24 hours in advance. Flight routes are flexible due to weather; flights can be re-scheduled or refunded if we are unable to fly due to inclement weather. Don't forget that weather over the road may be very different from what we are seeing on the tour.

Seeing Mt. McKinley is never a sure thing as it is located ninety miles from the park entrance, and conditions constantly change. However, the best opportunity is from an airplane. About 90% of Denali Air passengers see 'The Great One'. We'd love the opportunity to show it to you.
