About the Denali Backcountry Lodge

The Denali Backcountry Lodge is made up of a spacious two-story Main Lodge and 42 individual cabins which are comfortably heated and appointed with individual private baths and blackout curtains for a peaceful night's sleep. Enjoy the dining and lounge areas in the Main Lodge – it’s the perfect place for relaxing by the fire, playing games or taking in the views.
 
The property also offers several extra services to ensure you have a memorable and comfortable stay in the beautiful Alaskan wilderness. For some extra pampering, indulge at The Nest Spa & Wellness Center. Our therapists are well-versed in holistic programs combining the art of massage with the celebration of the human spirit.
Our location is so unique! We encourage guests to explore the area and offer a variety of daily outdoor activities to introduce you to the spectacular natural and cultural history of the alpine tundra and austere boreal forest that surrounds us.
 
Join our Naturalist Guides for a guided hike, botanical walk or exploration of a nearby historic site. Or, if you prefer to go your own pace, ask our guides to point out the best areas to explore for hiking, or biking on one of our mountain bikes. You can also try your luck by the water, fishing or gold panning right on-site in Moose Creek.
 
If after a full day of activities, you still want more, attend an after-dinner talk on rotating topics about Denali National Park, or relax those tundra-tired legs fireside, indoor or outdoors.
