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.

The simple log cabins are set along a ridgeline, all offering fantastic views of the surrounding scenery. All aspects are built with sustainability in mind to ensure a low impact on the landscape. Basic necessities form part of the charm of this historic lodging. As one of the original settlements in the park, Camp Denali has privileged access throughout the park with guiding trips delving deeper into the pristine wilderness.

I was inspired to travel south from an early age. My form teacher when I was nine made us listen to tapes from Shackleton’s expeditions, I didn’t know it at the time, but it obviously left a deep impression on my psyche.
