You cannot beat the scenery of Denali National Park, and this tour gets you deep into the wilderness, onto a road that is not open to public traffic. I have been a few times and the driver-guides have all been fantastic. They are very knowledgeable and passionate. It is a great way to see and learn about this great land.... More

If you don't mind spending 6-7 hours on a bus (with four stops to stretch your legs, use the restrooms, and take pictures) to see the unspoiled wilderness of Denali NP then this tour is for you. A great way to see amazing scenery, wildlife and Denali (Mt. McKinley). We saw a Moose, several Reindeer, and quite a few Grizzlies.... More

The Tundra Wilderness tour into Denali National Park was part of our land/cruise trip with HAL. This was through the Aramak concessionaire which has the contract for these tours/shuttles. My husband and I were on the 9:00 am tour #15a on 8/13/15. We were picked up at our lodging-McKinley Chalet Resort. This tour lasts around 8 hours. Your ride is... More

Six of our group did the morning Tundra Wilderness Tour in September with Guide/Driver Peter and wow what a amazing day. We had good visibility/weather and plenty of wildlife sightings. We had up close Moose, Dall Sheep, Caribou and Brown Bears sightings throughout the whole day. And we also got to see 70% of the wonderful Mt Denali. Yes it's... More

I took the Tundra Wilderness Tour in early September. I was part of a Princess Cruise tour, but had booked this upgrade directly with Aramark, the concessionaire. TIp: If you are booking this tour independently, you are supposed to call them 24-48 hours prior to confirm your departure time. I did this, what I didnt know was that in addition... More

My family took the Denali Tundra Wilderness Tour in August and it was absolutely worth the money and time! Our Alaskan Tour included the Denali Natural History tour which goes about 17 miles into the park and takes 4-5 hours. We upgraded to the Tundra Wilderness Tour which goes about 34 miles into the park and takes 6-8 hours. We... More

We were one of the lucky ones - visiting Denali on a sunny day. The scenery was spectacular, and we encountered Grizzlies right next to the road. It's a long day - but worth every second. I realize that we were fortunate - not a cloud in the sky (for perhaps the 3rd time this summer). But beyond the views... More

Beautiful vistas, several animal sightings, no rain that day. Probably the best thing you will do in Alaska. Our bus driver was knowledgeable and friendly. We were there for the fall colors, they were spectacular. We had hotel pick up.
