Duration: 4.5 to 5 hours (round-trip, inclusive of all stops)
Focusing on the rich natural and cultural history of the park, this 4 ½ to 5-hour tour travels to the Teklanika River (mile 27).
Several interpretive stops enhance the experience, with an hour of off-bus experience. Beginning with a stop at the Savage Cabin, the original ranger’s cabin, provides a living history into how the cabin was once used and how it continues to be used today.
At the Teklanika River Rest Area you may have the opportunity to see wildlife on the glacially braided Teklanika River from the overlook. At Primrose Ridge, you will experience a memorable Alaskan Native presentation that will enlighten you with how the land has been used for nearly 10,000 years!
Your driver/naturalist will provide a great introduction to the landscape, geology, and history of Denali National Park.
