My wife and I took the Kantishna Wilderness Tour that included the bus trip into the park and a flight back out using Kantishna Air Taxi. We chose this combo to cut the bus riding time down by half and to see the park from the air. It is an early morning trip, so we met our driver, Kevin, at... More

When we were preparing for our “Alaska Adventure” last fall, we read a blog on Trip Advisor that said, basically, if you are going to Alaska, you need to spend the money to take special side trips in order to see wildlife. The blog specially mentioned a 6+ hour Kenai Fjords cruise and this tour, the Kantishna Wilderness Trails Tour.... More

Our driver / guide was Melanie and she was wonderful. The day was long but went by quickly. We were able to see 10 grizzly bears over 4 dozen Dall Sheep moose caribou and even two wolves. The bus was comfortable and spacious and there were many stops for breaks along the way. The snacks provided were great and the... More

This is a long tour but very rewarding, especially if you like looking for (and seeing) wildlife. It was an early start and we were collected and taken to our tour bus, which was similar to an old converted school bus. It was quite adequate. We went into Denali Park as far as is possible and were given a very... More

The day we went on the tour was sunny and warm. Our guide, Kevin, was knowledgeable about everything from the history of the park to the animals. He would stop if someone saw an animal let us take pictures and he answered any questions we had. We saw 5 grizzly bears and a lot of caribou and the Arctic ground... More

Rode a bus 6 hours 96 miles into the park. This is a very long time to ride a bus with a lot of coughing, sick people. We did see wildlife, moose, bears, eagles, sheep and caribou. Highly recommend flying out in lieu of the return bus ride.

Our driver/tour guide was Kevin. Very knowledgable on the history of the park, animals in the park, history of Mt. Denali, vegetation, and trees. If, on the bus, you say you see an animal, he would ask where then position the bus for the best view and educate you on the life style and characteristics of that animal. Lunch at... More

My father and I were picked up at the princess lodge by our guide Kevin and we were happy that the bus wasn't like a school bus, more like a tour bus and we choose the seat directly behind the driver which offered more leg room and could hear what he was saying easier. During the tour we saw 8... More

I cannot say enough good things about this tour. It started from the very first with our tour guide. He was absolutely wonderful. He was knowledgeable and had many stories to share. The only downside was our bus. We had to change busses and Kevin didn't have a microphone but he did an excellent job without it. We saw many... More
