  • Let Anchorage Denali Express take the worry out of traveling to Denali National Park.

    Alaska is big. It's easy to underestimate the distance between destinations and the time needed to make the trip. But the scenery on the long drives can be spectacular. The views and the vastness experienced during the drive are probably a big part of why you came to Alaska in the first place.

    If the idea of a long drive exhausts or overwhelms you, then the Anchorage Denali Express is for you. Sit back in the comfort of our spacious motorcoach, complete with onboard restroom, and enjoy the spectacular scenery, watch for wildlife, and listen to your driver/guide's interpretation of the natural and cultural history of the areas you pass. View and experience Alaska, and leave the driving to us.

    The Route From Anchorage to Denali

    Shortly after you depart from Anchorage, the heavy birch forests of Eagle River and Chugiak lead to the Knik and Matanuska rivers. This expansive watershed harbors wildlife like moose, bear, and abundant waterfowl. About 40 miles from Anchorage is the Matanuska Valley, Alaska's agricultural center and home to the towns of Palmer and Wasilla.

    On the George Parks Highway, as you near Talkeetna, begin watching for southern views of Mt. McKinley. Continue north, crossing sparkling salmon streams and driving through spruce and birch forests. When the fireweed is blooming, the roadsides are a sea of pink.

    As you near Denali, you'll begin to climb up to tree line and then up to Broad Pass in the Alaska Range. Enjoy expansive views of sub-arctic tundra, and watch for migrating caribou in the fall. Arrive at the train depot in Denali National Park, fresh and ready for your next adventure because you left the driving to us.
