Denali Park
The Denali Education Center campus was built in 1990 along the eastern boundary of Denali National Park, on the banks of the Nenana River. This quiet wooded campus, consisting of 12 cabins and Riverside Hall, a combined dining and classroom facility, was the first in the U.S. built exclusively for Elderhostel programs. The cabins have been recently renovated and feature a shared enclosed porch (perfect for your wet gear and gathering with your cabin-mates) and two bedrooms. Each room has two double beds and private bath. Amenities include: linens, heat, electric outlets, soap, and views of wild surroundings. The absence of TV, radio, microwave, fridge, hairdryers, etc. encourages guests to unplug and get outside. Complementary Wi-Fi connection and good cell reception allows visitors to stay in touch with the world beyond Denali. All facilities are on the ground floor with four steps leading into each cabin. The longest walk from your cabin to Riverside Hall is about 200 yards on a gravel walkway, and the shortest is about 15 yards.

Established in 1916, our historic hotel originally served as Alaska’s central meeting space, though it now stands as a classic example of Anchorage’s rich heritage and commitment to preservation. The hotel is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Historic Anchorage Hotel is located in the center of Anchorage’s walkable downtown area, minutes away from great shopping, dining, and cultural destinations.
