Denali Park Alaska Travel
Denali Park is home to North America's highest mountain, Mt. Denali, towering over 20,300 feet tall. The 6 million acre National Park will also give you one of your best opportunities to see Alaska's wildlife such as grizzly bear, moose, wolves, Dall sheep and caribou. Denali Park is located about 240 miles north of Anchorage, about 5 ½ hours by road or 8 hours by train. The park is open year round, but the road into Denali Park and most visitor facilities are only open from mid-May through the third week in September. Denali Park offers a wide selection of lodging choices as well as an exciting line up of excursions and activities, and no one offers a more complete selection of Denali lodges, hotels, tours and transportation than Alaska Tour & Travel.
Denali National Park Lodging
The Denali Park area offers a wide selection of hotels, lodges and cabin properties just outside the Park entrance, as well as several wilderness lodges deep inside Denali Park. Alaska Tour & Travel is pleased to offer reservations at every major hotel near the Denali Park entrance area. This allows us to recommend a property that is just right for your travel preferences and budget. The Denali Bluffs Hotel is a good value choice for a mid-sized Denali property. With just over a hundred rooms, the Denali Bluffs Hotel is large enough to have all the amenities you would expect... at the same time it is small enough so you will not get lost in the crowds. For an upscale property try the Grande Denali Lodge or the Denali Princess Wilderness Lodge. Make sure to plan a minimum of two consecutive nights in the Denali Park area. Looking for a real backcountry adventure? Consider traveling deep into Denali National Park for a stay at the fabulous Kantishna Roadhouse. Check out our Denali Hotels page for a complete list of Denali lodges, cabins and hotels.
Denali Park Tours and Attractions
The 90-mile road into Denali Park has restricted access and private vehicles are only allowed on the first fourteen miles. You will almost certainly want to travel further into the Park on a narrated bus tour or Park Service shuttle. We highly recommend the full-day Kantishna Wilderness Trails bus tour, featuring a superb tour deep into Denali Park to a true wilderness lodge. Be sure to save some time for other activities like rafting, helicopter flightseeing, day hikes, the visitor center, or an evening at a local dinner theater. See more information on our Denali Park Tours page.
Denali National Park Transportation
People usually reach Denali Park by rental car, bus line or via the Alaska Railroad. The Park Connection Alaska bus line offers two trips each day between Anchorage and Denali Park, with connecting service through to Talkeetna and Seward. The Alaska Railroad also offers daily summer service to Denali Park from either Anchorage or Fairbanks. Since a number of great views of Mt. Denali are available from the train and bus, we often recommend traveling one direction by rail and the other by bus. A full list of options is available on our Denali Transportation page.
