We went on the Tundra Wilderness Tour. Our driver was so knowledgeable about the wildlife and was quick to point out the animals as we traveled the road. A highlight was a grizzly bear who strolled down the road right beside our bus. Wow!!

We enjoyed our bus tour. Drivers were friendly and knowledgeable. Recommend you bring binoculars and start layers of clothes. Many stops to see wildlife. Make sure you bring food and drinks.

The Park Road goes deep into Denali wilderness. It is very well maintained! It is a gravel road that the buses travel on so we can access the views and hikes. One of our very favorite things we did in Denali NP.

Yes. It'll be about 4 hours one way but there are rest stops during the way. Pack more food than you think and bring water.
