A trip of a lifetime to a beautiful national park. The lodgings, staff and food were great. This is an opportunity to experience the backcountry of Denali in a wonderful and peaceful setting.


I loved this trip - I wanted to hike in Alaska and the options for hiking with this program were fantastic. I could challenge myself some days and other days take it a little easier. The hike leaders were amazingly knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I would recommend this trip to anyone who wants to see Denali National Park and explore its environment.


Amazing experience of wilderness with great educators and guides.


This is a program where you can experience out of this world natural beauty, vigorous and healthy activities, active learning, and companionship. It exceeded my expectations.


We were pleased that our first Road Scholar experience was so positive. We started learning about Denali from the early reading recommendations. The hikes were as advertised, the leaders well qualified and the group was motivated and positive.


What a wonderful program Road Scholars put together for 8 days in Denali. The leaders were accommodating when they learned some participants could not endure the scheduled hikes for a number of reasons. They adjusted and offered hikes with minimal altitude climbs, yet still offering the safety and educational group setting. The wildlife we saw was amazing. In their natural setting we were able to see grizzlies, moose, Dall sheep, caribou, Alaskan ground squirrels (watch your backpack and lunch) and porcupine. The wildflowers was amazing as well, just smaller then their lower 48 counterpart. Met new people who had just as much fun and shared their experience daily.
