We took the Kantishna Experience which is a 12-13 hour bus tour to the end of the road. We were lucky enough to have fantastic, clear weather with perfect views of Mount McKinley. We saw bears, moose and caribou along the way. The driver did a wonderful job of narrating, watching for wildlife and giving everyone a chance to take... More

This is a must do activity in DNP. We took 8 hour tour to Eielson visitor center. On the way, we had great view on Mt. Mckinley, some amazing landscape and several bears, caribou, moose and dall sheep. The driver was very helpful and stopped whenever we can see wildlife. I wish we had opted for a longer tour but...

Opted for the longer 99 mile full 13hr day tour into the heart of Denali NP to the very end of Park Road with Denali Backcountry Adventure tours. Were not disappointed at all!! Spectacular scenery all along Park Road! Saw heaps of native wildlife including moose, caribou that put on a fighting display for us, and many bears including a... More

Denali National Park Shuttle This is the only way to go deeper into the park without taking a tour bus. The shuttle seats are comfortable enough, but the ride to Eielson is long. 4 hours in and 3 ½ hours out. The scenery is gorgeous and if you are lucky you will see Denali (Mt. McKinley). Polychrome pass is breathtaking.... More

The road is narrow and often right on the edge of the mountain, so if you are acrophobic you might have to move to the other side of the bus. It becomes rough and gravelly after 15 miles of pavement, but that adds to the wilderness experience.

We took the 8AM tour to Eilson Visitor Center. Though there was occasional rain, the scenary was amazing and we enjoyed every bit of it. We did manage sightings of 3 Grizzly bears, plenty of caribou and Dall sheep. Ken, our bus driver and guide, while very skilful in negotiating the bends, was very friendly and informative and kept us... More

Please opt for the tour that goes into this park more than the 15km that is on offer. You will get a better chance to see the wildlife further into the Park. At places the road is quite scary but the coach drivers know exactly what they are doing. A very enjoyable trip with enough toilet stops on the way.

Beautiful panoramic vistas, views of Mt. McKinley and abundant wildlife - the park road in Denali has it all. This is the only way to travel the park, so there's no way you can miss it - not that you would want to miss such an extra-ordinary route into wildnerness heaven.

Although Mount Denali was obscured by clouds we did get to see Grizzly Bears, Moose, Dall Sheep and Caribou. Our tour guide, Jeralyn, shared a wealth of interesting facts about the park and amusing personal anecdotes.
