We just got back from a great trip to Alaska - one of the highlights was a three-night stay at Kantishna Roadhouse, 90 miles in from the entrance to Denali National Park. You can't drive in yourself - you have to take their bus from the entrance (6 hours, with multiple stops for wildlife viewing) or fly in via air taxi. They feature guided hikes, with three levels of difficulty (or you can design your own); there are also great presentations on dogsledding, Alaskan culture and history, wildlife and other topics. Cabins are rustic, but with indoor plumbing; food (meals are included in the price) are good but not fancy, with limited choices. The staff is wonderful, and the experience of being deep in the park should not be missed. I wish we had stayed longer.
