Solitude and tranquility await in the wild Alaskan wilderness.
Denali National Park and Preserve encompasses six million acres of Alaska's interior wilderness, bisected by Denali Park Road. At the center of it all is a 20,310-foot high peak, Denali (formerly known as Mount McKinley), North America's tallest peak. Wild animals large and small roam about, including grizzly bears, wolves, moose, caribou, and Dall sheep, living as they have for ages. This national park features various terrain such as tundra, spruce forests, and glaciers, all of which are picturesque.
Popular summertime recreation includes biking, backpacking, hiking, and mountaineering. Please note that private vehicles can drive along the first 15 miles of Denali Park Road up to Savage River, but only buses can take you the rest of the way. The whole road and all of the campgrounds open up for the summer by June 8, but the park is open year-round. There are various bus trips to choose from, such as the five-hour round-trip tundra wilderness tour. Anyone visiting Alaska should add this incredible national park to their itinerary.
