AK Parks

Denali National Park

A trip to Denali National Park and Preserve may single-handedly prove Alaska to be the last frontier.

Each year, the Denali National Park and Preserve plays host to 400,000 visitors with itineraries ranging from bird watching to strenuous backpacking.

Pay a visit to this national park from late spring to early winter, either by private vehicle or the park’s bus service, and bring the family dog if you plan to stay on the roads.

Once you’re ready for adventure, sign up for the ranger-led Discovery Hike, or cycle out a chunk of the 92-mile Alaska Highway 3 – also the George Parks Highway, the only paved road in the park.

Snap a picture of Mount McKinley while fishing for trout in Wonder Lake, or if you’re feeling exploratory, try mountaineering in the Alaska Range.

Denali National Park’s winter activities include cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and even snowmobiling. Check out the annual Winterfest in the park for fun like dog sledding, snow sculpting and ice carving, or visit the Murie Science & Learning Center – the park’s winter visitor center.

When visiting Denali National Park in the winter, make sure you stick around after dark for a glimpse of the famed Northern Lights – also known as the Aurora Borealis.

The Denali NP&P is set 120 miles south of Fairbanks, and 240 miles north of Anchorage. The park can be reached by a scenic road trip through interior Alaska, or by private bus or van tours. Find yourself surrounded by stark beauty during your time in outdoor Alaska, and enjoy your time in Denali National Park.
