Take the morning motorcoach from Anchorage to Denali Cabins, a unique property nestled in the boreal forest just south of the Denali National Park entrance. The drive north is a scenic adventure through the Matanuska-Susitna Valley, Alaska's agricultural center, up to Broad Pass in the Alaska Range and Denali National Park. You'll cross sparkling salmon streams, and meander through birch forests. If the weather is clear, you'll have spectacular southern views of Mt. McKinley and other dramatic Alaska landscapes. Check in at Denali Cabins. There are 46 cozy cedar cabins with private baths, televisions, telephones, and contemporary furnishings as well as the charm of an authentic Alaskan cabin. Take advantage of free time in the afternoon to explore the area: Take a free shuttle to the Denali Park Visitor Information Center and the McKinley Village, or enjoy one of many other optional activities, like flightseeing, rafting, a jet boat safari, or a glacier-landing tour.
