Just 120 miles north of Anchorage
, Talkeetna is a peppy little township nestled at the base of North America's tallest peak Mount Denali. This historic village is a celebrated base camp for alpinists to ascend its behemoth backdrop and neighboring peaks like Mount Foraker and the Moose's Tooth.
What many would imagine being an archetypal small-town, Talkeetna delivers on more than just charm. The local community exhibits strong pride in their arts and outdoor scene. From unique lodging, art galleries and local gift shops to mountain climbing, historic riverboat tours, and soaring among the peaks on an awe-inspiring flightseeing tour, visitors will revel in the genuine frontier hospitality and the many things to do in Talkeetna. 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, Denali
. Outstanding views of Denali can be enjoyed from several places in town, including the comfortable Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge
, the only Talkeetna lodge with rooms offering Denali and Alaska Range views.
