Denali National Preserve was an optional excursion we bought on the land tour portion of our cruise. It was wonderful! Saw moose, caribou, grizzly bears including a moms and 2 cubs. Mt McKinley (Denali in Alaska, but you will learn the name history if you visit or look it up).

We were disappointed that our flight seeing could not circle the mountain, due to being socked in, but the next morning we were rewarded with clear sky and a view of the whole mountain, which only happens 30% ofte time!

Gorgeous, breath taking view. Definitely have to do the flightseeing tour. Very much worth it. The view from ground is great but you will never forget the view from the air.

Got an up close and personal viewing of Mr. McKinley thanks to Air Denali. It was a great experience.

Thankfully, with a lot of patience, we were able to view the beautiful natural mountains! Stayed at the Talkeetna Resort and looked so hard on day 1 but no luck through the clouds. Amazingly on the morning on day 2, I opened the curtains, looked outside , and there she was! Mt. McKinley in all her glory! A beautiful site... More

Everything was wonderful to see in Alaska. We booked through the Princess Cruise Line. Most of the trip was wonderful. The train rides were a bit tedious. To long!

The entire mountain was free from clouds. Only 10% see the mountain this way. Very lucky. In Denali you need to take a bus on the park road to see this. No cars allowed.

We took a Shuttle into the Park. GREAT tour guide/bus driver. He was super knowledgeable about everything in the Park. Probably told us more than we needed to know, but at least it was a lot of info and we could pick & choose what we wanted to remember. The Shuttle offered no food or water so we brought our... More
