You can’t go to interior Alaska and not go here! It’s so beautiful. The roads were a bit scary with the massive drops but our driver was very experienced. I did close my eyes a few times though ! We saw a bear just walking...More

The landscape is beautiful in its own way. Denali itself is breathtaking and seeing some of the wildlife (grizzly and caribou) was an added bonus!

The scenery is amazing. Went on a few trails in "bear country" but didnt see any! You really have to take one of the coach tours deeper into the park to see the wildlife.
