Location Details

While many of us associate the word “Denali” with the National Park, the name means “High One” in the Athabascan language and refers to Mt. McKinley. The magnificent mountain is 20,320 feet tall and is the highest peak in North America. Seeing the high one will take your breath away and a Tundra Wilderness Tour provides visitors to Alaska the best opportunity for an up-close view.

Denali National Park is six million acres with only one road. The Park is well known for wildlife, including 39 species of mammals, 169 bird species, 14 fish species and one type of amphibian. Visitors to the Park are often on the lookout for “the big five”: bears, moose, wolves, Dall sheep and caribou.
