The name Denali means “High One” in the Athabascan language. 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 and Preserve 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.
