I visited in the spring, when the park road was open to cars up to a certain mile marker. It was AMAZING. The beauty in Denali is indescribable. Driving the road allows you to stop and take in all of the breathtaking views. I was initially concerned about making the trip to/from Anchorage in one day, but it was incredible... More

The bus drivers were VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE! My husband and I learner so much just when we were driving around and taking in the incredible scenery! They were very nice and helpful and full of interesting information on everything from the park's animals to its geology!

I was working in the park as a volunteer and was lucky enough to have an all-access road pass in Denali. Drove the whole road from the visitor's center to Wonder Lake over a ten-day period. During that time, went bike riding on at least 25 miles of the road. Saw so many animals and heart-stopping views. This is not... More

We had to get up really morning for this. We were on a tour and we did see some grizzly bears, although not too close to the bus. We also saw a lot of other animals and overall enjoyed the tour. We had great views of Mt. McKinley, which I am told one can only see about 30% of the... More

I was there on 9th Sept, just the day before they close down the park for the end of the season. I took this shuttle to Eieilson to enjoy the most of the park in a day. I believe it's the best option if you only have a day. But it's rather long since you send 4hours to arrive at... More

I can say I visited Denali, but I thought the 8 hour shuttle ride was tedious and long. It rained off and on, particularly at the point that we would have taken a bus to Wonder Lake on standby. We did the unnarrated tour, but we had a wonderful bus driver who was a teacher, and she talked throughout tour,... More

Took the 7am shuttle to Eilson Visitor Center. It had snowed so the going was slow, we got turned back, but within an hour we were on our way. Beautiful. Saw bear poop in the road in front of us, mom & baby moose cross the road, and bears hunting for food. Great day. Not sure I would want to... More

We took the green shuttle bus to Wonder Lake and were priviledged to be part of the 10% of visitors to see Denali (Mt. McKinley) in its entirety... a sunny day with clear views. The tundra displayed all the fall colors, hues of orange, red, brown, gold, purple, with the backdrop of the Alaska Range and the magnificent snow-covered Denali.... More

The Denali Park is a must see at least once in a lifetime. The mountains, the plaited rivers, the tundra vegetation and the animals makes for a really great experience. Take the shuttle bus rather than the tours because they travel the same path as do the tours, but for half the price. Remember to stock up on food like... More
