  • The tour guide was very informative and the views was like you were dreaming! The front desk was awesome. It was the best amount of time in the air for the money I spent.

  • By all means do this tour WITH THIS COMPANY. I was visiting AK for my birthday. Without knowing anyone here, Erica, my tour coordinator was more than welcoming!! I got a happy birthday in my email, over the phone, and when I walked in to sign in for the flight. I felt extremely welcomed and appreciated. I also got to fly co-pilot which was a wonderful perk to my day!! Also our pilot Chris was awesome and is dependable for taking a good picture at the end! Something they don't mention is that Talkeetna is also great for buying souvenirs at nearby shops, which I never would've known had I not come here. Do this trip!!

  • Had the most incredible time. Our pilot, Kevin, was very knowledgeable and had a great personality. The views were breathtaking. Highly highly recommend taking this trip. It's worth every penny (even though it's a lot of pennies).

  • I surprised my boyfriend with this flight for his birthday a few weeks ago, and I am soooooo glad I did! It was the most amazing experience we had on our trip to Alaska! We were concerned that the weather would be an issue, but we ended up having what our pilot called a "5% day", meaning there were zero clouds in the sky and very little wind... We were able to get right up to the mountains with the sun shining and experience the most spectacular views!! Everyone at K2 Aviation was amazing and so friendly and welcoming. Our pilot, Chris, was super knowledgeable and made us feel safe the entire time, and he taught us so much about the landscape and local history. if you have the chance to take one of the flights that K2 offers, DO IT!!!!

  • View was beyond amazing! Being able to communicate with the pilot was an unexpected feature of this highlight of my 14 day trip.Unfortunately he couldn't land on the Glacier as planned, but gave us extra air time,plus were refunded some of the cost of the tour. Don't hesitate, treat yourself to this up close and personal experience with Denali.

  • all we can say is simply stunning the views and narration from the pilot were fantastic. The weather stopped us landing on the glacier but that did not take from the experiance

  • Wonderful experience, Great to be able to see Denali from the air since don't hike anymore.

  • We had the great fortune on scheduling our excursion on what the K2 Aviation people said was the best day of 2017, so far. The mountain was in full view and the winds were subdued so we were able to circle the mountain and see it and the surrounding peaks in glorious sunshine. We were able to get within 1000 feet of the mountain so it felt like you could reach out and touch it. The glaciers were amazing. We were shown the routes various climbers used to summit the mountain. This was one of those magical tours that we will remember forever.

  • We enjoyed the flight with some geological information about Denali from the pilot. Very well run company who picked us up at our hotel.

  • They rescheduled us once due to weather (at the last minute). So we show up on Saturday, having driven 1.5 hours out of our way to get there, for them to tell us this flight is cancelled due to wind. While I understand they cannot control the weather, why would you not call us or let us know beforehand? Don't tell me you wait until a half an hour before you take off to make these decisions? What was especially frustrating is we had called a few hours before to confirm and they had even said yes the flight will go. At that time they could have let us know it was questionable due to high winds. And then to top it off they were not even apologetic about the cancellation. Guy at the front counter literally just said- yeah your flight is cancelled, want to reschedule? Overall really terrible customer communication- there are lots of flight seeing options around Alaska- DO NOT CHOOSE THIS ONE!!
