Traveling 62 miles into Denali National Park to Stony Hill Overlook, the Tundra Wilderness Tour (TWT) offers a wonderful and diverse experience for park visitors. Incredible scenery, a narrated history of Park Road, and some of the best opportunities to view the park’s wildlife inhabitants await you on this tour.

While we can’t promise or predict when wildlife will show, the Tundra Wilderness Tour allows plenty of opportunity to look for Dall sheep, moose, caribou, wolves and grizzly bears. On days when Denali (meaning “the high one” or “the great one”) is visible, the tour bus travels to Stony Hill Overlook for an amazing view of Denali from base to summit.

When your tour driver is able, he/she will take video footage of animals along Park Road and project these images onto drop-down video screens, featured only our specially designed tour buses. This way you can get a close-up look at the roadside action.

At the end of the tour, you’ll have the opportunity to purchase a “Tundra Wilderness Tour” DVD, which will feature some of the video footage shot from your tour! Since the DVD is created following your fabulous adventure; it will be mailed to your home. For more information about this DVD, questions can be sent to denalidvd@aramark.com.

The winter months are harsh in Interior Alaska and can sometimes take a hard toll on Denali Park Road. The National Park Service works hard to get the road open before visitors arrive but sometimes Mother Nature has different ideas. While the road corridor thaws, we offer a shortened version of the Tundra Wilderness Tour called the Teklanika Tundra Wilderness Tour. This 4 hour tour is fully narrated and travels to mile 30 of the Park Road to Teklanika River Overlook.
