This was a wonderful experience. The Denali Education Center accommodations and food were basic but good, and we enjoyed the hikes with very knowledgeable field guides. The North Face Lodge has amazing cuisine! Very nice rooms and wonderful, friendly staff, with family style meals and attention to every detail of comfort, including providing the use of backpacks, gaiters, rain gear, canoes, and bicycles. We were incredibly lucky that Denali was visible and beautiful the entire three days we were there, after a week shrouded in clouds. Incredible wildlife viewing (two sets of mama grizzlies with twin cubs, a wolf, caribou, moose, Dall sheep, beavers, lots of birds of all sorts.) A trip of a lifetime.


This trip is a great way to experience Alaska. From the train ride to Denali, the hiking on the trails in the park, the road out to Kantishna and hiking in the tundra. It just does not miss the mark.


Everything as promised. An especially wide variety in physical activity levels, from liesurely to very challenging!


This is the best way to see Denali National Park. Everything we had hoped to see and experience was there. The hiking was great and we had fantastic guides.


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.
