Denali is six million acres of wildland, bisected by one ribbon of road. Travellers along it see the relatively low-elevation taiga forest give way to high alpine tundra and snowy mountains, culminating in North Americas tallest peak, 20,320 foot Mount McKinley. Wild animals large and small roam unfenced lands. Solitude, tranquility and wilderness awaits. Before leaving Denali National Park to head for Fairbanks we suggest you enjoy a 7-hour Tundra Wildlife Tour into Denali National Park. The park is inhabited by lots of different animal species. Mt. McKinley can be seen if the weather is clear that day and a snack lunch is included. In the afternoon continue on the Parks Highway north to Fairbanks. Accompanied by incredible forest and mountain landscape you drive through the communities of Healy, Nenana and by the community of Ester, an old gold mining camp.
Enjoy the wildlife tour with some luck you may see bears, caribou, moose, sheep, wolves and a variety of birds.
