Alaska’s most well-known national park is a rolling expanse of beautiful forest and untouched nature. Absolutely gorgeous, snow-capped mountain peaks surround valleys of lush forest and flowers. With over 20 hours of daylight in summer, there is plenty of time to admire the exquisite views and epic expanse. The park is huge, covering 6,075,029 acres of land. The giant Mount McKinley—which the Athabaskan Indians simply call “Great One”—is the roof of North America, towering 20,320 feet high.

The wildlife is easy to see with abundant bears, eagles, caribou, Dall sheep, moose, otters, lynx, wolverines, and dozens of smaller species of mammals. But most of all, Denali is ‘bear country’. Grizzlies roam the park at will, along with other brown bear and the American black bear.

One of the very best ways to experience Denali—and Mt. McKinley—is a flightseeing trip by float plane that then takes you to remote lodges that then serves as your ‘base camp’ for helicopter flights to view wildlife, fly fishing, glacier trekking and hiking, along with boat cruises and kayaking.
