Denali National Park

Mt. Denali is the highest mountain in North America which was known as Mt. McKinley earlier and has the most popular attractive land called ‘Denali National Park’ in Alaska. You can also visit many spectacular mountains and large glaciers in Alaska. Denali almost covers six million acres with many large mammals like moose, Dall sheep, grizzly bears, and wolves. 

The park accommodates a wide variety of people and so you can enjoy mountaineering, dog sledding, wildlife viewing, and cycling. It is the only national park with a dog sled kennel.

How long does it take to reach Denali?

Denali almost takes eight hours by the Alaska railroad and five and a half hours from Anchorage by car. If you like to go from Fairbanks, it will take three hours by car and four hours by train. 

How long to stay in Denali?

You will not be able to cover Denali in a day. So, we recommend staying for two nights if you are camping or if you are near the park entrance. If you stay deep inside the park-like in Kantishna, we recommend you stay for three to four nights. 

Where to stay?

Camping- There are few campgrounds in the park road like Igloo Creek and Wonder Lake. And you can find Campgrounds and Denali Grizzly Bear Resort that offers cabins, resort amenities, and tent sites outside the park. 

Hotels-  There are several lodges like Camp Denali and North Face Lodge, Kantishna Roadhouse, Denali Backcountry Lodge, and Skyline Lodge which is located in the Kantishna area within the park. 

You can also find hotels outside the park like Denali Lakeview Inn, Grande Denali, and Alpine Creek Lodge.
