Denali National Park Natural History Tour
This guided tour, which lasts between four and five hours, begins with a video at the Wilderness Access Center before a hop-on, hop-off bus tour takes you sightseeing along the park road. The route zigzags past scenic views and lots of opportunities to spot wildlife, like moose and Dall sheep. Stops along the way include visiting the historic Savage Cabin, built in the 1920s by the Alaska Road Commission as a shelter for patrols. Here a park employee, dressed like a pioneer, gives an overview of what life was like back in the day. There’s also a stop at Primrose Ridge, an area of dry alpine tundra and rolling hills popular with hikers. This part of the tour includes a presentation about Denali Athabascans by a Native Alaskan. Although the bus and its stops are wheelchair accessible, the tour does entail some walking.
