The below itinerary is only a suggestion, we offer tailor-made personal service and solutions to help you plan your perfect vacation.

Day 1 Fairbanks to Denali Backcountry Lodge (Rail / Coach) Early this morning take the Denali Star, the Alaska Railroad’s flagship train, in the Goldstar Railcar to Denali National Park. This afternoon, board a shuttle to Kantishna. The 148km/92mi, 6-hour journey to Kantishna along the restricted Park Road is called one of the grandest drives on earth, with chances to see Grizzlies, Moose, Caribou and Golden Eagles along the way. The end of the road is Kantishna and the Denali Backcountry Lodge, your home for the next 2 nights. You will arrive in time for dinner at the Lodge. (Breakfast onboard the train & dinner at the lodge is included today)

Day 2 Denali Backcountry Lodge - Kantishna Nestled in a snug valley, the Denali Backcountry Lodge is a true wilderness experience, with your own heated cabin. The lodge is located at the end of the restricted 148km/92mi Park Road with just a small bush airstrip and the vast interior of Alaska beyond. You can experience activities such as: day hikes (casual, moderate, or extreme), view and photograph Denali (Mount McKinley), gold panning, botany walks, shuttle to Wonder Lake and mountain biking. You can also visit Fannie Quigley’s Cabin, home of one of the original miners from early in the twentieth century. Meals are served in the main two-story lodge. (Breakfast, lunch & dinner is included today)

Day 3 Denali Backcountry Lodge to Denali National Park Entrance (Coach) An early departure this morning gives you another opportunity to view the magnificent scenery along the route back to the Denali National Park Entrance and a transfer to your hotel.
