Seeing the beauty here is emotional. Glorious views and bus driver was knowledgeable and very pleasant. A bucket list must do.

This park is preserved for wildlife and as such only a limited amount is accessible to people. To get very far at all you must take a park bus. This is great actually because there are no traffic jams beyond the point where cars are allowed. Lot of wildlife for the vigilant observers bring binocs!

Denali is massive and vast and rainy and cold but filled with caribou, bears, mountain goats, dall sheep, eagles, and more. We found moose and caribou antler sheds that were impressive. The views are unbelievable and the air so crisp and clean we didn't even mind getting wet we just soaked in the scenery and and reveled in the outdoors!

Words can't describe the immense grandeur of the park and how hard the Park Service works to keep it that way. Bring your binoculars and a good camera!

We were lucky enough to have nice weather. Despite that, we barely saw Mount McKinley (Denali). WSe took the 5 hours afternoon tour. We saw some wildlife (moose, and some caribous). Our disapointment was that the bus doesn't get you to Mont McKinley. You are about 40 miles from there. The tour shows you the wilderness of Denali National Part,... More

Denali by bus or train is full of superlatives. Mountains, glaciers, wildlife, wildflowers ... all so close you don't need binoculars. Unlike anything you see in the lower 48.

To say that Denali Park is beautiful and teeming with wildlife doesn't do it justice. We were staying at the Kantishna Roadhouse 92 miles into the park. Their bus took us in, a 7 hour trip. Our drivers saw everything and pointed it all out to us passengers. The mountain was "out" every day we were there. We saw caribou,... More

We had a variety of abilities in our group, and the info provided was very accurate, which totally made our trip the best ever. Online info matched reality, all bus drivers and rangers were wonderfully helpful. We were able to pick hikes and trips for everyone.

The wife and I did a 4 hour historic bus tour of the park on the morning of August 12, 2016 as part of our Princess Cruise package. The tour guide, Crash, was very experienced and knowledgeable of the park, facilities, and history of the Park and Mountain Range. We were very fortunate and were able to see Mt. Denali... More

Just think about how lucky you are to see such beauty! The park is so pretty with all the colors in the mountains at Polychrome over look. Caribou all over, Dall sheep, moose, and bears. We saw one momma bear with triplet cubs! So worth it.
