We took the 54 mile bus run through the park. The Alaskan scenery was magnificent and we say squirrels, avens, moose, caribou and a bear.

One of the most beautiful mountains in the united states, beautiful park any time of year, but is much more difficult to get around in the winter

The ride was included in our cruise package with Denali stay. It was a good tour for us since we saw almost all animals we had hoped to see.

This is such a great excursion to do, since it gives you the comfort of being in your car (bring water and snacks) but the autonomy of being able to stop, get out, take pictures, walk around. It's a wonderful option for a self guided...More

We were the luckiest of travelers. Not only did we have a beautiful day with dramatic views of Denali, but we saw all of the 'big five' wild animals on our ride. Our driver could not believe our luck. We have visited most of the...More

I've already reviewed the guided bus tour, so I won't rehash that. But this is the road that takes your breath away. I am very happy that I was a passenger, because there was no way I'd have been able to drive properly while taking...More

We went in middle May and the park buses were not running yet. We were allowed to drive in. The road was closed after we'd gone in about half way. It was still snowed over the rest of the way. Denali was clear and we...More

Simply put, unless you choose a private tour option, take the Park bus - and reserve well in advance to be sure you get a good departure time. The day we were going, a landslide had the road blocked beyond Eielson and for whatever reason,...More

Shuttle replaces tour. My shuttle driver was awesome. Gave narration, although they are not required to talk I think most do. Also stopped to let us take pictures. After my research it seemed like you were getting the same... More

Good morning. We stayed at the Princess lodge and it was part of our package. I did upgrade to the 9 hr tour. Actually, I was supposed to catch the bus at the Chalet and did not read my ticket correctly. I missed the bus but... More
It sounds like both the Tundra Wilderness "tour" and the shuttle tours stop for animals and some scenery. I'm guessing that the shuttles offer more flexibility if you want to get off, hike a trail, and then catch a different shuttle forward or back. Is this correct? If so, approximately how often do the shuttles come along? We are traveling early June.
