Denali National Park and Preserve is home to some fantastic scenery and wildlife. Within the preserve find a mix of forest, tundra, glaciers and mountains offering a playground to go hiking, climbing, fishing, dog-sledding and cross-country skiing. Also a great place for viewing Alaskan wildlife, including bears, caribou and moose.
Denali National Park is a six million acre wilderness area home to Mt McKinley, the highest peak in North America, as well as the Alaska Mountain Range, vast glaciers and the subarctic vegetation. With just a single road leading 92 miles into the park, the large proportion is left to the wildlife.
It is a fascinating region to explore not only for its scenery but for its history. People have been living within the park boundaries for 12,000 years.
