Denali National Park, Alaska, spans over 6 million acres of park and preserve area, and is chock full of wildlife and different sights for visitors to explore. It’s the location of the tallest mountain in North America, Denali, formerly known as Mt McKinley, which soars more than 20,000 feet above sea level. Its terrain has a greatly varying climate over its area, ranging from taiga forests to tundra regions, all the way to snow-capped mountains and glaciers at its highest altitudes. The Denali area has been occupied for over 11,000 years, with the oldest archaeological site dating to 7130 BC, though for the most part these sites have been shown to be camps rather than permanent settlements, which has made Denali truly an isolated place for most of its history. Visit the incredible Denali National Park now with our 2015 tours and activities and enjoy an excursion into the wilderness!
