Default Mt. McKinley Summit Flight and Rafting in Denali

We are considering doing the following 2 tours. We are torn though to spend the money especially on the Summit Tour. Question for those of you who have done it or have been up there? Is it worth the money for the summit tour??? What are our chances of seeing Mt. Mckinley from our lodge (Princess).

Rafting...has anyone done that? They have their lesisurely tours of a nice float trip all the way to a more adventureous rapids ones. Any suggestions??

Are you several days at the McKinley lodge?? It does have a spectacular view- when the mt is "out" which is seldom.

Last trip for me it didn't show, for 8 days.

Only you can decide if seeing it is a priority??? If not, then go with what you get.

The summit flight is just excellent and a priority for me.

Thanks for advice...as much as we are spending for the excursions we figure what is a few hundred dollars more??? So I know for sure I want to Mt. McKinley. So I guess it means we spend the money so we are guaranteed to see it. We are at the lodge only 1 night. 2 nights at the Princess Lodge in Denali.
