Denali Hiking Tour
Hike with an experienced, naturalist guide and small group through the wilderness trails of Denali National Park. The 5-hour experience showcases the tundra, taiga and boreal forest that has made Denali a mecca for wilderness adventurers the world over. Listen to narration to understand the parks botany, geology and history as you focus on the nature all around you — not the logistics or your map.

Denali Heli-Hiking Tour
Few things are more exhilarating than a hike through the incredible Denali National Park, unless of course that hike also includes a round-trip helicopter flight over some of the most rugged and remote terrain on earth. An experienced naturalist guide helps you get the most out of the experience: stunning and remote locations come alive as you see Dall sheep, caribou and grizzly bears during this 5-hour excursion. Come prepared with outdoor gear and leave with special memories.
