Denali NP is an all day activity. You can only drive up to the 15 mile mark before having to turn back to the visitors center. The only way to explore the park properly is to go to the visitors center and puchase a bus ticket. They have various bus routes that will take you to different points throughout the... More

We saw Denali in several ways. Back in 2011 we took a flight from Talkeetna, and hiked. Last trip in 2016 we took the full day bus tour and saw lots of wildlife. Love the views. Hate the crowds.

A friend of ours won the road lottery, and couldn't go, so he transferred the pass to my girlfriend and I. We packed 5 grown and healthy adults into a small SUV, and dove 3hrs into to the park and 3 hrs back. We didn't quite get to wonder lake due to weather, but what an amazing experience. We saw...

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.
