We traveled in our rental car into the park as far as a personal vehicle can go. Stunning scenery. We also took the Park Shuttle to Toklat River and saw even more. Our favorite things were the big four....mammals--Grizzly bears, Dall Sheep, Caribou, and Moose, plus we saw a bit of Denali. The park guide told us that we had... More

If you go to Denali Park, do not decide to go on a short Denali Tour, which is about 4 hours drive with the bus thru the park. Upgrade you tour tyo the Denali Wilderness which is about 8 hours long. This is the tour you can see the best views and you can see a lot of wild animals.... More

We did the bus tour of the Park Road - wow - so much to see. We saw Caribou and Moose, Sun, Rain and Hail all in the same day! Our tour guides gave us great info.

Take the bus as far as Eieleson Visitor Center. Get off and start hiking back along the road. When you need a break, flag down a green bus and get back on. When rested, get off again and repeat.

A completely awesome experience. A long ride, eleven hours total, but worth it. The views, the wildlife, were a wholly unique and beautiful.This is an awe inspiring lake with Mt McKinley in the background.

You need to get away from the roads and into the park and the shuttle bus offers the best way of doing this. Craig was our driver who knew a lot about the park and its inhabitants. There were plenty of bathroom breaks and he always stopped for wildlife. We saw bears, caribou, moose, porcupine and a very rare snowshoe... More

So much shopping and activities such as white water rafting, backpacking to McKinley, camping, and many gourmet restaurants like the Salmon Bake and Prospectors Pizzeria.

Well, with our Princess Cruise Lines trip to Alaska we had the Nature Tour through the first part of Denali National Park. It wasn't really filled with great wildlife that you hear so much in "Wild Alaska" but Gary was honest about that and a wealth of information. We did see four moose but no other wildlife to speak of.... More

Our 7am tour was brilliant. Our driver, on the outbound trip was Tracy (sorry if that should be Tracey) was engaging, sharp eyed and amusing. I had expected the 4 hours to drag but she made the time fly by. The wildlife played their part and our cameras were never still. The return was nearly as enjoyable but our driver... More

Driving out the Park road was a once in a lifetime opportunity. We saw lots of animals, including several bears.
