TAT is very accommodating with the weather and they want you to have the best weather possible so book earliest in your travel. And be ready to drive there whenever the weather clears. Because it will be worth it. They were really kind to upgrade us to glacier landing which is also worth the money. If you are on the fence about adding glacier landing, don't be. Because it's well worth $90 extra.
Everyone, especially our pilot of whom I wish I knew the name, was very friendly and down to earth.
Thanks for the best memory of Denali mountain!!

Wasn't able to see Denali from the ground over a 3 d period so I flew over the 11 k' clouds with Talkeetna Air Taxi. Beautiful sight with Denali (20k'), Foraker (17k') and Hunter (14k'). Some mountains visible below the clouds and some barely through. Flew amongst the peaks. Snow too soft to land on the glacier. Fantastic experience.

My wife and I just spent two weeks traveling around Alaska. While in Talkeetna, we decided to try to get a flight to view the peaks of the Denali Range from the air.
At first we tried the first company visible to us (K2 Aviation) but they said they were booked for several days. I then learned that K2 also caters to cruise lines and I guess those companies come first. We next tried Talkeetna Air Taxi. We were instructed on the different levels of flights they offered in a very businesslike but friendly manner, and, were told we could go up that very day. We chose our flight, scheduled it and had a marvelous trip which included a glacier landing. Our pilot (Chris) gave us an enjoyable and safe trip in a DeHavilland Beaver. If you plan on a trip to Alaska, do not hesitate to fly Talkeetna Air Taxi for a gorgeous view of those magnificent mountains. You will never regret your decision!

One of the best decisions of our trip was to take this flight. We took the flight that went all the way around Mt. Denali and landed on the glacier on the side. The plane was in excellent shape and the pilot was great. Incredible views, even saw some mountain climbers working their way up the mountain. One thing to keep in mind, a friend told us he went in August and they were unable to make the landing on the glacier because the snow was a little melted. So you may want to try going some other month if possible.

Words just cannot even start to describe the experience! The thrill of viewing glaciers from up above, landing on the pristine ice, it was just awesome. A very knowledgeable and friendly pilot adds to this unforgettable experience.
