Where the Tour Goes

The only commercially guided tours allowed in the park are a few hiking tours in the entrance area and the park’s own bus tours. This tour travels along the edge of the park boundaries and into a nearby wilderness area via the Denali Highway, which offers equally stunning vistas as the park road. Locations on the Denali Highway offer even more photogenic landscapes.
