The size of Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Delaware combined, Denali National Park’s almost two and a half million hectares have been carved out of the heartland of Alaska to create a wilderness area of epic scale.

An entire ecosystem is preserved here providing unparalleled wildlife viewing: it’s common to see bears grazing on lake-front sedges, a herd of caribou disappearing into a deep valley or a lone wolf loping along a river bar.
