Narrated Tour Buses
Denali Natural History Tour (DNHT)
Offered mid-May - mid-September
Focusing on the rich natural and cultural history of the park, this 4 ½ to 5 hour tour travels to Primrose Ridge (Mile 17).
Several interpretive stops enhance the experience, beginning with a stop at the Wilderness Access Center for a viewing of the film "Across Time and Tundra" which depicts early visitor experiences within the same area traveled by DNHT passengers. A stop at the still-used ranger cabin - called Savage Cabin - provides a living-history glimpse of the folks who might have used the cabin at one time. At the Primrose Ridge turnaround point, you will experience a memorable Alaskan Native presentation that will enlighten you regarding how this land has been used for nearly 10,000 years.
A snack and hot beverages are provided. Wheelchair accessible buses are available, and all stops are wheelchair accessible.

A box lunch and beverages are provided. Wheelchair accessible buses are available, and all stops are wheelchair accessible.
