Denali National Park is larger than the state of Massachusetts. It is also one of the world's last great frontiers for wilderness adventure. Mt. McKinley, North America's highest peak at 20,320 feet, is located in the park and is known to locals by its Athabascan name "Denali," or "the high one". Its impressive vertical relief of 18,000 feet is even greater than that of Mount Everest! Denali National Park is located 238 miles north of Anchorage and 120 miles south of Fairbanks. With the exception of a few lodges in the park, most of the hotels and activities are found at the park entrance, including opportunities for hiking, river rafting and helicopter flightseeing tours.
Scheduled bus tours into Denali are the best way to enjoy the park's wildlife and scenery as private vehicles are not permitted past Mile 15 of the 95 mile park road. Bus tours should be booked early, as space is very limited! Choices vary from a 4-hour Natural History tour, 6-7 hour Tundra Wilderness Tour, or full day guided tour to Kantishna.
