We were not expecting to actually see McKinley on the Tundra Wilderness Tour since its predominantly covered by clouds. Luckily, the clouds cleared up quite a bit by the time we reached Mile 64 and we could see 7/8th of the mountain and it was GORGEOUS!

The view of the mountain is beautiful, but not guaranteed. All depends on the weather and clouds. You can easily spot the mountain from the distance in the summer - it's the only one covered in snow. The drive to Denali park is also fun; you can spot all kinds of wild life. But don't waste your $15 for park... More

A must visit when coming to Alaska. Take the longest bus ride and see all of Denali.. Be ready for wildlife picture moments. They are everywhere! Early mornings are best for wildlife encounters. Take the Flightseeing plane. If you are lucky as I was, you will see Mt McKinley like it is meant to be seen. We even saw the... More

We drove into the park as far as we could to Savage River and took the hike by the river. It was a gentle hike. The next day we took the shuttle bus to Eielson Visitor's Center, and 8.5 hour trip. It was a pleasant ride. We saw a fox, moose, caribou, Dall sheep and Grizzly bears. We took a... More

We flew close to the peak; it was a clear day and we saw it over the clouds. Absolutely memorable. Not to be missed.

Learned that you can't have your cake and eat it too. If it's clear and warm, you'll see less animals but see Mckinley. If it's cloudy/rainy, you won't see the mountain but you'll see more wildlife. Tours are long!

Unfortunately Mount McKinley makes its own weather and it is not often that you get a clear view but still is an attraction you don't want to miss. Take the yellow school bus to the second to last stop and you won't regret it. Wildlife and vistas abound. If you go all the way to the end it is mosquito... More

We took a flight tour with K2. The weather was great with good visibility. The entire tour was about 2 hours and we were able to get really close to the peak and see it from certain angle. We enjoyed every second of the tour.

What an amazing sight. Lucky enough to See the Mt. on a virtually cloudless day. Photo op was spectacular. Too bad our tour guide rushed us away from the view.
