Overview

Denali Tours

Denali ToursThis is your chance to venture into the realm of Mt Denali, North America's tallest mountain, where vast areas of alpine tundra and shimmering glacial lakes form the habitat for almost 500 different species of flowering plant, including lupines, bluebells and fireweed.

The decorated patchwork of hillsides provide a spectacular display of colour during spring through to summer, and an excellent criss-cross of walking trails allow you to catch a glimpse of the animals which call Denali National Park their home.

Caribou, moose and mountain sheep are literally everywhere and if you get the chance to glimpse a Grizzly in its natural habitat then your Alaska adventure is bound to be hailed a complete success.

Denali Insider Tips

Get off the beaten track
As Denali National Park is one of the few preserved areas of wilderness where visitors are actively encouraged to explore a little further from the trail, you'll be able to get a lot closer to wildlife than you'd ever dared to imagine. Of course, following ranger instructions is definitely the way to go and keeping quiet is the best policy no matter what you're hoping to see. Exploring off-the-beaten track is an incredibly humbling experience and a must for anyone who wants to have a real taste of life beyond the last frontier.
When to go
Summer is the key time to visit Denali, when you will have the best access to the park and the most activities are possible. In June and July the wild flowers tend to blossom and you can expect to find long 20 hour days of sunshine. As seasons change, temperatures will drop, however the chance of seeing the northern lights will increase. Winter in Denali is renowned for its severity and access within the park is limited. Winter turns directly into summer around June and back to winter during the middle of September.
