We found the backcountry adventure to be super exciting. We were lucky enough to see Denali because it was a clear day! We also saw wild life, bears, Caribou, Dall sheep, ptarmigans, etc. Worth the while.

Anna was our guide and she was the best! It almost seemed like the animals were just waiting for us. We saw lots of bears, caribou, moose and a couple of wolves and dahl sheep. I would recommend this to anyone going to Denali.

Yes it does! We stop by there for about 30 minutes to take pictures and enjoy the visitor center and stretch legs.
