It is always a pleasure helping guests make the most of their time here in Denali. Rest assured you will be receiving quality information as we have been in the area three straight generations and share our love of the outdoors with our seasonal staff. We are happy to make reservations for a variety of local activities. There are many ways to observe wildlife, view the landscape, and let the adventurer in you come alive! We highly recommend considering the following activities during your Denali visit:
- ATV Tours
- White water or scenic raft tours
- Attending a local lecture or educational session
Sorry but we do not book bus tours into Denali National Park but can answer questions or help you plan your trip. We suggest visiting the National Park’s website for further details regarding the Park and their bus system.
All those activities will be sure to leave you hungry. We recommend exploring all the great local eateries while in the area. For a fabulous eclectic menu of healthy fine dining options opt for 229 Restaurant and Tavern. If you are looking for a quick healthy grab and go along with a cup of hot coffee look no further than the Black Bear Coffee House on the boardwalk north of the park entrance. Indulge your sweet tooth with the largest homemade cinnamon rolls in Denali or a stack of blueberry pancakes at McKinley Creekside Cafe, a brief walk from our lodge. For those of you looking to enjoy a brew check out the famous 49th Brewery in Healy.
