The scenery is changing and beautiful, and we had a wonderful guide, but the wildlife was disappointing. We did see caribou, bear, squirrels, and dall sheep but, except for the caribou that was blocking the road for our bus, and lots of squirrels, the bear and dall sheep were at such a distance, I am shocked that they were spotted...

Our tour took us to mile 62 along the Park Rd You must use a tour bus if you want to go past mile. This was a great decision as I am a huge nature buff. We saw everything, including Grizzly, Moose,Caribou,and Dall sheep

The only way to go deep into the park is to ride one of the Park’s buses. We took our car in as far as the old guard shack with the stripped pole across the road which helps explain we are to turnaround. We had a good time watching the lonely moose looking for food down by the river. The... More

Our cruisetour included a 3 hour trip into Denali NP, but we wanted more! We ditched that one and booked a shuttle into the park along the road about 66 miles instead! It was awesome! Thanks in part to our bus driver, Ken, we were able to enjoy more of the beauty of Denali, and of course the wildlife: dall... More

We did both a Natural History tour and the shuttle to Wonder Lake. Both were very good. Due to weather we never did see Denali but we saw tons of wildlife. Our shuttle driver, Wendy, was excellent. Shuttle drivers are not required to talk, their job is to drive the shuttle, but Wendy's love for and knowledge of the park... More

This is the main road from Anchorage to Denali (and on to Fairbanks). Expected more scenic views on the way to Denali, but found them on the way to Fairbanks. Several parts of the road were under construction, including no surface on the mud and gravel. This frequently led to long waits as the traffic was only 1-way and we... More

If you go to Denali National Park this is the one road in and out. The visitor center and trail heads or near the beginning. Camping is a bit further in and you can take a bus tour to get deep into the park via this road. Expect to see a ton of wildlife!

What a beautiful place to visit. A photographer's dream! This was a truly awesome experience that we had on a beautiful day in Denali. We got a real look at the geological formations in the area. Unfortunately, Mt.McKinley was shrouded in fog. We think that we saw the top and the bottom but never the entire mountain. It's an absolute... More

Well done Park service! The green buses follow the guided buses through out the park road so you travel and see many of the wild animals regardless of the weather. The green bus also takes you to the dog sled presentation and picks you up at designated stops so you can explore the park and nature on your own

We took the bus Ito Denali National Park and it was a sweeping, beautiful vista with a caribou and moose sighting. There was a lecture by s native Alaskan Indian woman from a local town that was very interesting. We did not stop at the visitor center but wish we had. A beautiful place and a great opportunity to treasure... More
