The Bus ride with Christine set up the entire trip--informative, fun and great views--the number of wildlife we saw was not what we expected but even with that if was worth the 7 hours. The lodge, the staff and the surroundings of the Roadhouse are fantastic. We had as much to do as we would like in a very low... More

We recently spent 3 nights at Kantishna which included our party renting 2 separate rooms. We arrived at 7:30pm after a 6 hour bus ride from the park entrance. Our guide Christine was friendly and informative with the bus really being more comfortable than anticipated. Be prepared with snacks & drinks for the ride in as Christine provided a piece... More

When you see the cost of this experience you might be expecting Ritz Carlton like accommodations - you won't get them here. It is very bare bone with simple log cabins, family style dining, school bus (with nicer seats) transportation and a general camp like feeling. There is no wifi, tv's or phones :) This hotel is one of the... More

We had a great trip!!! Stayed at Kantishna roadhouse. What a great group of folks. The mountain was "out " every day we were there. Hiked, mountain bike riding, yoga, and drank alaska brews. Killed a keg of stout. Wow, what a trip! Would do it again in a heartbeat. Love the guides!

We took the 13 hour Wilderness Tour to Kantishna Roadhouse and back. (we didn't overnight at the roadhouse) The bus was comfortable though not luxurious. (we didn't expect luxurious anyway) Our bus driver, Christa, was VERY knowledgeable about all areas of the day long trip. She not only knew the history of the park and the various features, she also... More

We took the Kantishna Roadhouse bus tour through Denali National Park and really think it was the best option if you are looking to do this. Only school buses are allowed into the park after mile 15, so no ride is going to be luxurious, but our bus driver/tour guide was extremely knowledgable and was excellent at spotting wildlife! At...

We booked three nights at the Kantishna Roadhouse sight unseen from NH. Upon arrival, we met Kirsty and her bus, Charlie. On board the bus, for about five hours with stops, we learned more about Denali National Park and the creatures of the area from Kirsty than we ever could've from a book or a course. Kirsty is simply outstanding.... More

I went to Kantishna Roadhouse on a tour with Natural Habitat Adventures. The accommodations were very nice and the area scenery was beautiful. The staff were friendly, professional, and helpful. The bus ride in and out of the lodge area is one of the best parts. We saw lots of wildlife and incredible views along the way that people staying... More

A wonderfully remote location! This historic roadhouse offered a lot to those who want to really experience Denali National Park from the inside out! The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The rooms were basic--even accompanied with a "bug-zapper" (which we put to good use) in each one! We joined in a few of the hikes and tours and enjoyed... More
