We took the Tundra Wilderness Tour and it was so worth it! I wish I could remember our tour guides name he was excellent. The road through the park is pretty rustic, so I can see why the buses are the only vehicles allowed.The bus drivers along the way stop, and tell the other tour buses the animals they saw... More

It was a long day on the bus, leaving at 1:30, returning at 9. It was still light out at the end of June. We were not able to see the summit of the mountain but we did see wildlife. If I were to return I would stay at the lodge very far into the Park.

We visited Denali Park in August, after a long cloudy spell. In fact we had been there nearly two weeks (staying in Fairbanks) and hadn't seen the mountains the whole time we were there. Then, two days before we were to leave, the sky cleared and we could see a whole new world. We decided to make the trip to... More

This Park is kept in pristine condition. When you visit, you know why. Seeing nature as it was intended is quit a sight. (Wish we'd had the foresight when planning Yellowstone). Take the time to enjoy! #noregrets

A must visit. Take the Denali Backcountry Adventure tour or the Kantishna Experience tour if you really want to experience the Park and see the wild animals in their natural habitat. Be prepared for a full day tour.

This place is huge and not just huge 6,000,000 acres huge. We took the shuttle bus and would recommend everyone to do to the same as its the same as the tour bus for 1/3 the price. We went up to Eielson and did the trek to the top. Excellent day out and was very enjoyable. The bus ride was... More

It was warm when we were there, so there was not much wildlife to see, other than one moose. The landscape was amazing and we were able to see Denali Mountain in full view. They said that was rare, but many others reported also seeing it when they visited. The bus ride into the park was OK. It makes a... More

Our park ranger gave us a fabulous tour of one of the hiking trails, the bus ride throughout the park was interesting and we had a very friendly driver. Absolutely beautiful scenery and hiking trails for all levels of rambling

The Park is only open to self drive two days a year and there is a lottery to get on the list. Subsequently the only way to go is on an organised bus trip. It is really worth spending the money to stay overnight to get the most out of Denali or take a scenic flight if the weather permits.... More
