We boarded a school bus, but with nicer seating, on a 7 hour journey and learned so much about nature and the environs! We were fortunate to see bears, caribou, moose, and birds. Our guide was very knowledgeable and patient in answering questions.

We booked and paid for this shortened tour (5-6 hrs) over 6 months before we left Australia. We received an email 2 days before the tour explaining they were unable to put us on a morning tour and to give them a ring. We were told that we were the only 2 booked for the morning so there would be... More

We went on the Denali Wilderness tour as part of the HAL cruise+land package in late August. We were arranged to depart at 2:40 pm and disappointingly we only saw a token few wild animals scattered here and there during the lengthy tour. Some other guests mentioned that they saw a lot of wild animals in the morning tour. And... More

We took the 7 hour tour that goees into the heart of Denali Naptional Park. Breath-taking is not sufficient to describe the pure beauty of this place. You're on as school bus like vehicle - the seats are not lthe best in the world but what you see outside the windows cannot accurately be described. We samm Dahl sheep, moose,... More

The vehicle for this tour is a refurbished school bus that was not very comfortable. Shortly into the tour it broke down but a relief bus appeared in very short order and we continued on our way. The dirt road kicks up a lot of mud but the driver cleared it off every time we stopped. That all said I... More

There are a couple of different tours but this one is supposedly the best for wildlife viewing, and doesn't take up a full day to go all the way to Wonder Lake.It turns around at Stony Hill. We took the afternoon tour but in hindsight the morning tour would be better as once the sun sets on the way back,... More

My wife, kids, and I visited Alaska and one of the tours we took was the Denali Tundra Wilderness Tour. This was a very exciting bus trip through Denali. We were able to see all kinds of wild life including Moose, Caribou, Bears, Dall Sheep. The views of the wilderness are spectacular. The road was pretty interesting at several points... More

While we were in Denali National Park we decided to take the Tundra Wilderness tour. You get on a bus that looks like a school bus, just a little more comfortable, and the driver is also your tour guide. The tour goes 30 miles into the National Park and takes between 5 & 6 hours. The scenery is beautiful and... More

For a sense of just how magnificent Denali is, a tundra tour is a must. Our guide and driver (Jason B) was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about his job and sharing with us everything he could to make the most of our trip. We saw several grizzly bears (one quite close), caribou and moose, but the real show was the... More

We took the tundra wilderness tour a month ago at the recommendation of our travel agent and it was excellent advice, since the other tours just don't cut it. My recommendation: take the later tour, starting around 2-3 pm and sit on left side of the bus. It seems that more wildlife are moving around later in the day and... More
