Called Alaska's most impressive feature, Mount McKinley is North America's highest peak at 20,320 feet. The surrounding six million acre national park is called by its original Athabascan Indian name, Denali, meaning "The High One."
While in the Park, experience activities such as flightseeing, rafting, kayaking, hiking and guided park tours. Shopping and restaurants are available from Healy to Cantwell. Visitors to the park often spot brown bears, moose, caribou, Dall sheep, wolves, and other wildlife. Many opportunities exist for photographing the wildlife and this awe-inspiring mountain which towers above the Alaska Mountain Range.
Be sure and include Denali National Park on your next Alaska vacation.
Tours into the park last 8 or 12 hours. There is a shorter tour that stays near the park entrance if you are short on time. You can also book a seat on the camper bus, and get off along the way to go on a hike. The next bus with an available seat can take you in the direction you wish to go. Reservations for campsites and hotels in the park book fast, so make your reservations early.
