Day Four: Denali National Park
Everything about Denali National Park is big: the scenery, the mountains, the incredible beauty and the animals. Early this morning, you will embark on a Denali Park Shuttle Tour, an excellent way to spot the wildlife for which Alaska is so famous: moose, bear, wolves, caribou, dall sheep.
The bus stops every 1 hr 10 min. for restrooms and whenever wildlife is sighted as you travel. Opened in June 2008 the completely reconstructed Eielson Visitor Center was built as sustainable construction and features informative interpretive exhibits. This is the turnaround point, allowing 30 minutes to explore the visitor center or the surrounding area with a short hike. This shuttle time is 8 hours roundtrip, including all stops. AAU arranges for and includes boxed lunch and beverage for the trip. So bring your camera and binoculars.
This afternoon, relax and enjoy the ride through the park. This evening, enjoy your continued accommodations near Denali National Park.
