Denali Hiking Tour

Select Date and Travellers

    What to Expect

    This tour is for the more fit travelers. Participants are expected to posses the ability to hike for five continuous hours up and down the nearby mountainsides. Our daily walking tours offer a similar experience in a less strenuous manner. While still a narrated tour, the interpretive hike covers more ground, and explores the glacier topology in depth. The extra time on the ground gives the group a chance to see the forested area near the Nenana river, the brushy but wildlife rich sub-alpine tundra, and the gorgeous views and highly adapted vegetation of the taiga.

    Groups size is a maximum of 6 people. This is Alaska so bring your outdoor gear; sturdy walking shoes, water, jacket and rain gear, along with your camera and curiosity of this great land. Some of the basic equipment is available, including rain gear, water, overboots and trekking poles.

    Stop At:

    • Denali National Park, AK

    We had a great time with Ibra on our Hike, he choose the perfect hike for us. He gave us the option of a narrated journey and we couldn’t have been more pleased and impressed by his knowledge of the area, the natural foliage we encountered and his enthusiasm throughout our trip.

    The park is phenomenal and a great way to see it is on the bus. Confining, but comfortable for my 5’10” frame.
