We lucked out on the weather this trip. The place is huge. Mountains all around. The only way you can get all the way into the park is by taking a tour. Might have been worth it, but we were on a time schedule. Saw some moose, and did some hiking up to the snow.

The gem of Alaska. Recommend Tundra Wilderness Tour. Saw grizzlies, moose, caribou, Dall sheep, willow ptarmigan ( state bird), and a wolf. Fall colors in full color by mid August. Rather heavy done cut our excursion short.

We took a bus tour.. It was nice and we saw a lot of wildlife. Recommend this as a good thing for the first day to get an overview. It is a beautiful national park.

We were fortunate to spend more than a week in the area surrounding Denali National Park and the mountain. Mount McKinley (and now officially renamed Denali) is often not fully visible to visitors, particularly if they are only in the area for a day or two. The mountain "makes" its own weather and thus is often shrouded in clouds. Given... More

Our tour of the National Park was part of an "add-on," land excursion through Regent Cruise Lines. We were very fortunate to have Joe as our driver/tour guide for this all-day "safari" throughout the park. He was a wealth of knowledge and his insights and stories made this tour especially enjoyable. We saw numerous caribou, brown bears, Dall sheep, ground... More

The animals and the scenery are unmatched, but remember to bring a coat and hat, even during the summer months because it can get cold/snow any time.

Plan to stay in the park area for a couple of days to increase your chances of seeing Mount McKinley. There are several activities in which you can participate while waiting for the grande one to appear. The wait is worth it!

A crystal clear day allowed extraordinary viewing of Mt. Denali. Incredible history and vista that must be seen to believe. Fantastic experience.

Seeing Mt Denali in August is a rare treat. We got to see the peak in a hazy morning and the base in a cloudy afternoon. We then got to see the entire mountain from a small plane. It is an impressive sight.
