Denali, the Crown Jewel of national parks, is a true wilderness. There’s very little development and very large scenery. Access into the heart of the park is restricted. The best way to see more and do more in Denali is on a full-day excursion that takes you to the end of the road.
You could spend a month in Denali and not see as much of the park as our Backcountry Adventure covers in one day. This spectacular journey takes you farther than any other tour, traveling to the end of the road, 92 miles into the Denali backcountry for an experience tailored to those who are big on excitement and short on time.
Your driver-guide is a gifted storyteller with an eye for safety and a radar-like ability to spot wildlife. Time seems to fly by as your journey past stunning landmarks like Toklat, Polychrome Pass and the Eielson Visitors Center.
Lunch is served buffet-style in the little end-of-the road settlement that is Kantishna.
Here you’ll have free time for a botany walk, to visit a historical site or try panning for gold.
Then, the journey out of the park is just as full of magic. The light is different, the chances of spotting wildlife different, and by this point, you’ll feel different as well. You’ll have a deep appreciation for the preservation of this remarkable place—how the vast wilderness can be both calming and inspiring.
A day on the Denali Backcountry Adventure, after all, is unlike any other day.
INCLUDES: Pick-up from most Denali hotels, 92 miles of guided sightseeing, snacks and refreshments, lunch and signature Alaska activities in Kantishna.
