About Denali Tundra Tours
Experience the real Alaska with Denali Tundra Tours! Denali Tundra Tours offers both ATV and non-ATV tours, both rated as some of the best tours for sightseeing in the Denali area! Denali Tundra Tours' Alaskan Argo ATV Adventure features the amphibious Argo- locally know as the ATV of Alaska. Look out over the perfect Alaska tourist attraction: Eight Mile Lake, a tundra jewel surrounded by wildflowers. Scan the valley using provided tripod-mounted spotting scopes. Get to know the light-footed mobility of our 2- seated Argo Frontier-580 amphibious ATVs or the comfort and easy handling of a 4-seated Kawasaki Teryx. Enjoy the view from the exclusive comfort of our Pavilion and Viewing Gallery on the wilderness ridge that we call Flat Top. The spotting scopes reveal nearby giant Glacial Erratics. Often times there is wildlife to be seen along the way: caribou, moose, bear, wolf, or ptarmigan. On a clear day, you will be able to view Denali itself. Let Denali Tundra Tours take you there. We host four guided tours daily along the historic Stampede Trail which is surrounded by Denali National Park on three sides. Custom Tours can be arranged. Weather is NOT an issue on the Stampede Wilderness ATV Adventure as the machines are covered and float through any water we encounter. We'll keep you warm and dry while you explore the Alaska taiga and tundra. The Alaskan Tundra Picnic Tour last 3.5 hours and is a van-based tour (non-ATV) and the only historical tour directly north of Denali National Park! On this tour you will visit the historic community of Healy Alaska, nearer to the Denali National Park entrance than any other year-round community. Along the way you will learn local secrets and visit points of interest with plenty of opportunities to get out and take pictures. We’ll pay a visit to Rose’s Cafe to pick up our pie and optional picnic meal before setting out the Stampede Road to see Denali and enjoy the sights at Denali Tundra Tours’ exclusive wilderness pavilion. The site overlooks Eight Mile Lake and Eight Mile Cabin, the only other man-made structures visible within the thousand square mile vista that unfolds from this ridge top perch. Learn about life in a rugged mountain town while scouting for wildlife; relax by our stone fire pit while your knowledgable Alaskan tour guide entertains you with stories and local legends.

My husband doesn’t like buses, but here is an exception. We boarded our school bus with redone seats and started off on paved park road. The only way into the park is on park buses which keeps the park free from human interference. We learned...More

Tour bus driver was very knowledgeable and great personality. Learned about wildlife in park and had limited success seeing wildlife. He did get us a fantastic view of Mt. Denali by end of day. Recommend the trip
