Spend more than one day

Travel in as far as you can, each day on the official buses - the only way to see the park. Views change with the weather, hikes are abundant.

I decided to upgrade from the tour that came with our Cruise/tour to the 9 hr tour. Glad I did. The tours are on school buses and the tour buses are not allowed in the park. Our driver/tour guide was Brian Gross and he was awesome. The wildlife was everywhere and we even saw a bear that walked to our... More

A ride to remember in the Denali Highlands where one sees bears, moose and the caribou meandering across the tundra and taiga forests

We took three shuttle bus rides during our week in Denali - one to the end (Kantishna, mile 92) and two to the visitor center (mile 66). For the first two, we had two who were amazing -both knowledgeable, amiable and great drivers focused on passenger safety. For the third, we had another guy, who was indeed focused on safety,...

This is a MUST DO but go on a clear day. Take the shuttle bus through the road, it's worth it. There are stops along the way and he ride is beautiful and the only way to access the parks beauty. Even if you don't get to see Mt McKinley, which definitely is the highlight, you see non stop picturesque... More

The PArk Road took us through all kinds of incredible scenery, past wild scenes and wildlife. I don't know how the driver handles going so close to the edges and cliffs, all with no guard rails! It was beautiful, but I'd love to do it again someday!

The bus ride to the end of the road is long but a good way to see wild animals in their habitat and if the weather cooperates, you may be luck enough the see all of Denali - it's breathtaking.

Beautiful drive, beautiful landscape, beautiful animals. We took the park shuttle 4 hours in to Eielson Visitor Center and were not one of the ones lucky enough to see the mountain but it didn't matter at all... the animals and landscape along the road were plentiful.

The bus trip down the roas is once in a lifetime! The road gets narrow and has steep drop offs on one side at one point. Very beautiful with wildlife everywhere. Take a good zoom lens, pack a lunch and enjoy the ride!

There are two ways to go past the twelve-mile mark into Denali National Park. One is to stay at one of the lodges in the interior, and the other is to take a day trip from the visitor center. We were not looking forward to the six-hour (each way) bus ride to the lodge, but we found ourselves with our... More
