Denali Backcountry Adventure Bus Tour
The Denali Backcountry Adventure Tour is a premier Denali Park Wildlife bus excursion. This full-day, 13-hour tour travels 95 miles in each direction to the Denali Backcountry Lodge in Kantishna. You'll travel by private bus with a trained naturalist driver/guide giving interpretation along the way helping you search for bear, moose, caribou and other wildlife while pointing out the biology and geology of the region. Several photo and rest stops will be made. Snacks, drinks and lunch are provided. Lunch is served at the exclusive Denali Backcountry Lodge in Kantishna. Lunch consists of a sandwich bar, soups, fruits, snacks, fresh baked goods and non-alcoholic drinks. After lunch try your luck at gold panning near the lodge or take a guided nature walk before returning to the Park entrance.
If you are looking for a shorter trip that combines an exciting flightseeing tour, consider adding an option return flight from Kantishna.
What To Wear

For this event, please also bring comfortable walking shoes and a jacket that can shield you from light wind or rain. We recommend you also bring bug spray and binoculars if you have them.
