We spent a week in Northern Alaska and the peaks were visible from far away. We did a glacier landing from Talkeetna and saw the mountains first hand. From Denali we spent two days in the national park driving and camping in the park, the peaks are majestic and so royal, they look after the people of Alaska !! An... More

When I visited in April, the park road was open to cars (to a certain point). I relied on information from the staff at the visitor center to stop at various points where I might be able to get a look at Denali. The peak was covered for much of my drive, but it was exciting to stop along the... More

Took the 70 mile bus trip into Denali through Aramark. The bus driver/guide was excellent and added a lot of depth to the trip. Saw lots of wildlife and the transition of landscape into trundra. This is a "Must Do" when touring Alaska. Plus, driving up from Anchorage (we had a rental car) we had an unobstructed view of Mt.... More

On a clear day the view of Mount McKinley is breathtaking. It completely dominates the skyline. Need a good telephoto lense to appreciate the sight

We loved landing on a glacier on Mt McKinley. We took a small plane that held 11 people and it was amazing! We needed a jacket and this trip was worth every penny!

We got to catch glimpses as we wandered around but never got the full view. Beautiful area not to be missed.

I had two near death experiences while attempting to summit Mt. McKinley, in central Alaska during the first three weeks of May 1983. Yet; it was an adventure of a lifetime, and I would gladly attempt to summit it again; if my health permitted! Our expedition started by flying from Talkeetna, AK.; in a Cessna 180 with skies, and landing... More
