Ride the bus 92 miles to Kantishna. We saw Grizzlies, caribou , Dahl sheep, and moose. A very sunny day we saw McKinley from every angle! A good lunch at the roadhouse. Forgot the name of our very entertaining driver/hostess but she made the trip memorable! Enjoy the chocolate chip cookies!

It had one slice of meat, cheese and way too much lettuce filler, If you could not eat the lettuce you have a very skimpy wrap left. That was the common complaint of the people sitting...

The best guides are at Kantishna! During our September 2016 visit, we were awed by the extent of the knowledge of the staff. Kirsty is not just a bus driver -- she is a wilderness guide, wildlife spotter, and an accomplished photographer. Kristen is a professional with deep knowledge of flora, fauna, and geology. Ask for her to be your...

Our driver, Christine, told lots of interesting stories and was great at spotting wildlife. She stopped the bus whenever there was a a bear /...
