Except for wolves we saw just about every animal that lives in the region, close up. One grizzly walked up to the bus then stayed in front of the bus as we drove a half mile or so. The views along the way with Denali at the end are something unforgettable. Some places along the narrow road are really scary.... More

We've taken buses into Denali National Park numerous times and have never been disappointed. On some trips, especially the shorter ones to Savage River, we haven't seen a lot of wildlife, but the scenery is spectacular. We've been fortunate enough to see the mountain (Denali, or Mt. McKinley) many times, something that always thrills me. And the colors in the... More

Denali National Park is a real must see. We took the shuttle bus into the park to Eielson Visitor Center in July. We woke up and it was snowing a little bit. So we had some special views in the park but unfortunately, we weren't able to see 'the mountain'. On our way back out of the park we got... More

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

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
