Moose, grizzlies, eagles, dall sheep, and caribou. Need I say more? Our highly informative guide was wonderful, patiently stopping for everyone to take pictures. And the buses are equipped with cameras and monitors so you don't miss any of the sightings even when the animals...More

Nice calm easy voice and knowledgeable. We saw moose, caribou, fall sheep and grizzly and some birds I can't remember. The best part is that the driver can video the animals and display it in a screen in front of you. That way you don't...More

We totally enjoyed this tour. Our guide, Bruce, was extremely knowledgeable. This was my husband's dream, but I would go again in a heartbeat. The views were breathtaking, and the wildlife abundant. We saw caribou, moose, dall sheep and bears. A bear even approached the...More

The tour bus was considered to be a luxury tour bus, and it was. However, the seats are quit small. great for elementary school sized children. No arm rest to hold you in if your are larger. We were given a snack and a bottle...More

While we did have to ride a no frills school bus, the seats were comfortable and the trip wasn't as bad as it sounds. Before our visit I read that the driver will make or break the trip and this is true. We lucked out...More

You will ride on a school bus--yes, a real school bus--for 60 miles into the park and then back again. The whole experience takes between six and eight hours. If you are lucky, you will see moose, grizzly bears, caribou, and maybe wolves. Most often,...More

Is this the right tour for relatively active people who would love to see bears, moose, caribous, dall sheeps and maybe wolves? I am not particularly interested in seeing animals on screens. How likely is it that we'll end up stuck on a bus, with no animals on sight or only very far?

Is this the right tour for relatively active people who would love to see bears, moose, caribous, dall sheeps and maybe wolves? I booked this trip for my teenage daughter and myself but now I am worried that we'll get bored and we'll be stuck on a bus for many hours. We are fairly active and booked other tours in Alaska to fly around Denali, land on glaciers, full day trip on kayaks, etc etc. I wonder is this is the right trip for us. How likely is it that we'll end up stuck on a bus, with no animals on sight or only very far? Would really appreciate comments from people who have been on this tour. Thank you

I found this tour quite boring only in so far as the time spent on the bus with limited time off it. Scenery is lovely on the tundra and seeing wildlife can sometimes be pot luck, we saw plenty of caribous, but no bears or... More

I am wondering when is the best time to visit Denali as far as cloud cover, rain and animals? We were thinking of early July because we will be traveling with our 14 year old grandson. Is there a better time of day to go?

The Tundra Wilderness Tours depart regularly early in the morning and after lunch. The weather was spectacular when we were there in late August. I would check their website
