Backcountry Express

Embark on an adventure of a lifetime in just one day aboard the Denali Backcountry Adventure as you journey to the historic mining district of Kantishna. This full-day narrated excursion offers the most opportunities for wildlife viewing and sightseeing as it travels along the entire 92 miles of the restricted-access Denali Park Road.

Your knowledgeable driver guide will narrate along the way, and help point out bear, moose, caribou, wolves, and Dall sheep you may see along the way to the Denali Backcountry Lodge, located in the heart of Denali National Park, where you’ll feast on a buffet lunch.

Try your luck at gold panning in Moose Creek as the miners would have done, explore the backcountry on a guided botany walk, or sit back and relax in the Main Lodge before making the return trip to the Park Entrance.

For a complete Alaskan experience, we recommend pairing this itinerary with a trip to Kenai Fjords National Park.
