One of the most beautiful and naturally perfect places to visit in Alaska is Denali National Park. If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing vacation full of natural landscape and free-roaming wildlife, Amazing Accommodations Alaska highly recommends you visit this pristine national park.
Vacation at Denali National Park
Denali National Park consists of 6 million acres of mostly undeveloped land that has never been touched by human hands. There is only one road and one road entrance into the park – the Denali Park Road. This 92-mile-long road runs east to west through the park and is made up mostly of dirt and gravel in order to keep the area as rustic as possible.
During the summer months, you can drive your own vehicle through the park for the first 15 miles. From there, the only way to view the vast wilderness, wildlife, and landscape is via narrated and non-narrated busses. These bus tours are a great way to view the diverse wildlife and gorgeous landscape that Denali has to offer.
Outdoor Activities for the Whole Family
There are several outdoor activities you and your family or friends can enjoy while visiting the park:
- Sightseeing – Imagine being on one of the narrated bus tours and spotting a grizzly bear, black bear, or herd of caribou off in the distance. More commonly seen while visiting Denali are smaller mammals such as arctic ground squirrels, red squirrels, foxes, and marmots.
- Hiking – Both marked and unmarked trails are available for you to enjoy the natural scenery of this vast wilderness. There are several self-guided trail hikes that take you all throughout Denali to places like Savage River or Mount Healy.
- Photography – The magnificent landscape provides a stunning backdrop for photographing a variety of wildlife like lynx, foxes, wolverines, coyotes, and any number of birds. Enjoy taking pictures of gorgeous snow-capped mountains, low-lying glaciers, or the beautiful natural colors of the summer season.
