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.

Mount Denali

Mount Denali, Denali National Park, AlaskaThe highlight of the park is Mount Denali, the 'Great One' that at 6,193 m (20,308 ft) is the highest mountain in North America and dominates the park and the surrounding region.

Due to ongoing improvements to the Park Road, access to Denali National Park is currently limited. We therefore recommend joining the Denali Tundra Wilderness Tour or enjoying a flightseeing trip over the park to marvel at the endless mountain scenery.

The Denali region also encompasses lowland boreal forest and alpine tundra, providing a perfect setting for a variety of activities including rafting, cycling and guided walking.
