Denali Park Flightseeing Trips with Kantishna Air Taxi

Get Breathtaking Views of Mt. McKinley from the Air

Mt. McKinley is an amazing icon. From nearly anywhere on the road system in Alaska, you can see it on a good day. However, nothing can parallel what it’s like to see Mt. McKinley from the air.

One of the best ways to do this is via a fixed-wing flightseeing tour with Kantishna Air Taxi. KAT Air has been flying curious travelers through the clouds and into the most spectacular views of Mt. McKinley since 1992. They are the only flightseeing company that is allowed to start flights from the closest airport to the mountain.

As one of our neighbors in the Kantishna back country, we’ve been sending our Kantishna Roadhouse guests on their flights for many years. They have always provided our guests with great service and the amazing opportunities to see Mt. McKinley.

We’re proud to have Kantishna Air Taxi as one of our Best of Denali Sweepstakes partners. The lucky winner will be taking a flightseeing trip as a part of their vacation in Denali Park!

August 24, 2021 National Park Service Announcement
Denali Park Road Closed To All Traffic beyond Mile 42

Due to the unsafe conditions posed by landslide activity the Denali Park Road is closed. The Kantishna Roadhouse is closed for the season. The Kantishna Wilderness Tours bus tour is operating on very limited capacity for tours to Mile 42 through Sept 12.

The Kantishna Roadhouse is an “inholder” business and we must comply with the National Park Service. We are dismayed and saddened that we cannot keep our business open for the remainder of the 2021 season. And, as you can see, we have no choice but to cancel all overnight reservations beginning August 24th and through the end of the season. We will be sending you a cancellation notice and crediting you with a full refund.

Thank you for your understanding. I fully understand that you wanted to be at the Kantishna Roadhouse, rather than reading this and making other plans.

Best Regards,
Marie Monroe, General Manager
