Denali National Park is world renowned for it's premier wildlife, sightseeing and scenic qualities in Alaska. Denali National Park is a six million acre preserve encompassing Mt. McKinley (Denali) at 20, 320 feet. Vast wilderness areas, with lush glacial valleys surrounded by numerous glaciated peaks of the Alaska Range, create an awe-inspiring environment. Grizzly bears, moose, caribou, wolves, lynx, fox and a host of other mammal and bird species exist in a virtually untouched and harmonious ecosystem.
The Nenana River is the eastern boundary of Denali National Park for nearly 40 miles. The glacial whitewater gradually increases from mild class I moving current in the upper reaches to exciting class III/IV rapids in the lower canyon. This allows for a variety of options for river adventures to enhance your vacation to Denali National Park, Alaska.
If Alaska's rivers are not your style, explore Denali National Park by mountain bike and experience Alaska on a more intimate level. We suggest a bus ride into the park and a bike ride out. You will need to make reservations on a "Camper Bus" available through the Wilderness Access Center. Each bus has space for 2 bikes.
