Things To Do
Known around the world for its amazing scenery and wildlife, Denali is a place of excitement, inspiration and exploration for travelers.
Open year-round, activities at all levels of difficulty and exertion can be found. Most visitors come in summer, when access by bus into the park becomes possible as winter ice and snow lose their grip on the land. The hardy few that come in winter can expect solace, tranquility, and the challenges of extreme weather.
Activities Near the Park Entrance or Along the Park Road
