Note: Ranger programs in Denali are mainly offered only in the summer, from May 20 through the middle of September.
Whether you seek a short interaction or plan to fill multiple days attending these programs, park rangers are here to help you understand, appreciate and take care of your park.
With the exception of Discovery Hikes and the Kantishna Experience Tour, all ranger hikes, sled dog demonstrations, campground programs and other talks in Denali are free and do not require you to sign up in advance. Discovery Hikes are technically free, but will likely require you to purchase a bus ticket and you must sign up for them in advance.
Types of Ranger Programs in Denali
American Sign LanguageOur goal is to provide American Sign Language interpretation, when requested, for all ranger programs. Denali is very remote, however, so please request ASL interpretation as early as you can to ensure that we can accommodate your request!
Other Naturalist and Education Programs
Our partner non-profit association, Alaska Geographic, also offers a variety of programs for visitors. Other than field courses, these programs occur at the Murie Science and Learning Center.
Summer Program Schedules
Most ranger-led programs occur from May through September, so dates outside that window are unlikely to have many ranger-led activities.
