We got lucky, on both the flight in and out, as well as several days while at the lodge, Denali was "out" and clearly visible.

With only a day to spend we took a 6 hour bus tour into the park. It was worth every dollar and every minute to see such spectacular sights. We were lucky to see the mountain after we got into the park. Our bus driver/guide was knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this tour to anybody.

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
