Described as a frontier town that resembles the popular TV show "Northern Exposure," you'll think you've stepped back in time when you visit this charming village of 900 year-round residents. Surrounded by untamed wilderness but filled with sincere hospitality, Talkeetna is a place where you can take a leisurely walk and experience a friendly community, tour historic buildings and learn about the early settlers in this region. Fifteen of Talkeetna's twenty-four buildings are on the National Register of Historic Places.
One of the highlights for guests visiting the Talkeetna area is the opportunity to see North America's tallest peak, Mt. McKinley, or "Denali" as we call her locally. Rising above the tundra to 20,320 feet (6194 meters), outstanding views of Denali can be enjoyed from several places in town. While in town, it is common to meet some of the climbers who will attempt to summit Denali, or who have just completed their climb. They're easily recognized by their "racoon eyes" from exposure to the bright sun, their heavy backpacks loaded with gear, and their expressions of pure joy and exhaustion from achieving such an incredible feat.
When you stay at Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge, a wealth of activities and adventures can be found right outside your door. From a magnificent flight tour over Denali National Park to an exciting afternoon exploring Talkeetna's wilderness trails, your visit to this favorite destination promises lasting memories of Alaska.
