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

Had a wonderful stay here June 2015. Activities were perfect. Food was great and staff was amazing. Highly recommend. Go for it. Rooms were clean and spacious. Of course, no Wi-Fi or cell service but feel free to go tot he bar and actually chat with those hanging out. What a revelation. If we are to return to Denali we... 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

We stayed here as part of a pre-cruise extension. I had read mix reviews on Trip Advisor so wasn't sure what to expect. I was quite pleasantly surprised at both the accommodations and the service level of the staff. We met the bus at 1:15 pm after traveling from Anchorage by motor coach. We were blessed to have Kirsty as... More

The 5-6 hour (90 mi) bus ride with active nature interpretation en route was terrific with driver Kristy, but not with Christine, who talked endlessly. Accommodations are basic, but nice. Food was good and service cheery. Interpretive hikes and gold panning were great

The food was outstanding, the staff accommodating in every way. I especially enjoyed my hikes that were guided by a knowledgable staff member from the roadhouse! The view was outstanding. Bus ride in and out a bit long but wildlife viewing is a integral part of the trip. Can't go wrong choosing the roadhouse.

Went yesterday (June 7th) Krista was our driver-guide. What a knowledgeable lady. I learned so much about the animals and Denali National park. The entire tour was awesome and I would definitely go again with them. Time at the Roadhouse was wonderful.

Working here was the greatest experience of my life. My first time visiting Alaska and I went all the way to the end of Denali, was without service for over 4 months but was well worth it :) going there again this summer!
