Alaska / Camp Denali Wilderness Lodge

Tour Dates: Weekly departures June 4 to September 10

Alaska – Camp Denali Wilderness Lodge lies within a vast wilderness of snow-clad mountains, lake-studded tundra foothills and forested river valleys make up Denali National Park and Preserve. The parks’ centerpiece, Denali (formerly called Mount McKinley) stands 20,320 feet high and dominates the Alaska Range that stretches 150 miles across the horizon. Denali is surrounded by forest and tundra and is a wildlife sanctuary for caribou, grizzlies, moose, Dall sheep and wolves.

Located beneath the majestic mountaintop of Denali lies Camp Denali. The Camp was founded in 1951 and is Alaska’s original wilderness vacation lodge and nature center. The handcrafted individual log and frame guest cabins are privately situated along a ridge at the margins of forest and tundra. Each has an exceptional view of the grand mountain, sleeps 2-6 and is furnished with patchwork quilts, a small wood burning stove, wall mounted propane lights and a gas hot plate. The dining hall, lodge, natural history resource collection and a modern bath and shower facility are a three to seven-minute walk from your cabin. In addition each cabin has a meticulously kept handmade outhouse. Camp Denali sits right at the 2,400 foot tree line, providing access to native tundra and taiga habitats right from your door.

There is not a television or bar to be found or any other commercialized amusements. If you wish to live for a time in an extraordinary wilderness setting surrounded by the grandeur of a majestic mountain and abundant wildlife, you will not leave disappointed. This is a unique opportunity to explore Denali National Park’s serene, remote valleys and ridges.
