About
Avoid busses and crowds by taking the wheel of a Jeep Renegade to explore Denali on your terms! It’s part Jeep rental, part personal tour, and 100% fun! You choose your destination, stop when and where you want, and never feel rushed. The Denali region has one of the most majestic landscapes on Earth—Lush valleys carved during the last Ice Age, tremendous mountains that reach for the sky, glacier-fed whitewater rivers, and world-renown wildlife viewing, creating a synergy that captivates and astonishes around every twist of the road! More than just a car rental, this Jeep excursion gives you the ability to get off the beaten path in a rugged vehicle designed for weather-proof safety and comfort. You will receive a souvenir guide book which details the historic roadways, local attractions, and unique points of interest. There are several different routes we can suggest based on your personal interests, but you have the freedom to make your own as well!

Terrible experience with Stampede Excursions
Sep 2021
We had a terrible experience with Stampede Excursions. I would really question their safety practices and quality of service. Not recommended.

Worst tour operator in Alaska
Sep 2021 • Couples
Hands down the worst experience I have ever had with a tour operator. Not only was the service terrible, but the company is unethical in its practices. When the terrible weather was clearly unsafe and offered zero visibility, they forced the tour to move ahead anyway. Despicable. Would strongly encourage tourists to look elsewhere - there are many other options.

Alaska Bucket list
Aug 2019 • Friends
Like a parallel universe to the Denali national park. Amazing scenery, glaciers, tundra desert, wildlife, mountains. Absolutely gorgeous. In my personal top three tours to do in the Denali area. I've spent three summers here, and this was by far one of the coolest things I've done. Nice to go at your own pace, bring snacks, stop when you want as long as you want. Absolutely worth it! Went all the way to Paxton and back in a day. Fantastic! Go see the Alaska range!!

great ride
Sep 2019
Great way to see the area. Great opportunity to take a drive and see the sights for four hours. Heard the Park bus tours are good but sitting on a School Bus for 6, 9, or 12 hrs didn't seem appealing to us. The Jeep gave us a better option and the ability to go elsewhere. Could have used more time, it flew by so quick.

Fun but not needed
Sep 2019 • Couples
I was a little confused about this. I thought you could go places with this Jeep that you could not go in your own vehicle. We already had a rental so this was a waste of money for us but staff was very friendly. We had fun though and learned a lesson. Would definitely recommend if you didn’t have a rental car. Only thing I would change is the map or lack of. It’s just lines and with the fear of $199 a hour if your late made us Leary about exploring to far.

The Grande Denali Highway Jeep Tour!!
A group of 4 of us decided to do this excursion to see more of Alaska. We work up in Denali for the summer and on our days off we want to explore more. So we decided we wanted to see the whole Denali Highway.
I looked into renting a vehicle. All of the vehicle rental places in Alaska will tell you in large print

"RENTAL CARS ARE NOT ALLOWED ON THE DENALI HIGHWAY."

So we found Stampede Excursions and they have the Denali Self-Guided Jeep Safari and they allow their jeeps to drive on the Denali highway.

I was really excited that it was a self-guided tour because then we could stop whenever we wanted to for pictures. So we didn’t need to be held up with a guide and other people trying to take thousands of pictures.

The scenery was really nice lots to see. We where able to see lakes, ponds, mountains, three different glaciers, the tundra, wildlife and it was spectacular!

We where told that we where not guaranteed to see animals but we know wildlife is wild. But we got to see ptarmigans, robin’s, swan’s, moose, ground squirrel’s and some snowshoe hares. Also we picked blueberries!!

It was cloudy day with a little bit of rain in some parts. But we could not have asked for a more beautiful day.

I will recommend this tour to those who are in the area that would like to explore the Denali Highway.

Half Day Independant Excursion
May 2019
Great opportunity to take a drive and see the sights for four hours. Unfortunately to really get into Denali you have to take a Bus Tour. Heard they are good but for us sitting on a School Bus for 6, 9, or 12 hrs didn't trip our trigger. The Jeep gave us a better timed option for us and ability to go elsewhere.

A lot of fun, nice alternative to group tours
Jul 2019 • Solo
A lot of fun if you're into self-directed adventuring. You get a decently capable Jeep and a few route suggestions. I chose the notoriously car-unfriendly Denali Highway and was rewarded with a beautiful drive, with the freedom to stop wherever I wanted. (Good thing too, because there is no shortage of photo opps). Instead of being in a tour bus with other people, you can drive in silence or plug in your phone for music. Good deal.

They saved the day for us!
May 2019 • Couples
Because Holland America didn't get us into Denali until 5:45 pm on 5/27 and decided to ship us to Fairbanks at 2:30 pm on 5/28 we didn't have time for any of the awesome excursions available in Denali. We were so disappointed, but I did a Google search and found Stampede Excursions and started a chat with them. I explained our situation and they recommended the self guided Jeep Tour on Denali Hwy and it was AWESOME! We took some of the best pictures from our whole Alaskan vacation during our Jeep ride. Everyone we talked to there was so courteous and helpful. They really went above and beyond. They were prompt in pick up and promptly took us us back to the Chalet. I left a bag in the drop off vehicle and they were so nice about that and brought it back to me, so sweet and understanding about doing so. I highly recommend them!
