Most visitors come to Denali National Park to see the 6,200-meter-tall Mount McKinley, but it is far more than just a mountain. Denali National Park may be named after the tallest peak in North America, known by locals as Denali, meaning “the high one” in the Athabaskan languages of Alaskan Native American tribes. Located just north of Anchorage, Alaska, this National Park is the largest in the USA. It boasts more than 2.4 million hectares of tundra, mountains and glaciers, which contrast the area’s vast wetlands and verdant spruce forests.

One of the best ways to view this mountainous park is to take a fixed-wing or helicopter tour from Anchorage. On the ground, you’ll find a wealth of other activities to enjoy. In the warmer months, the park features opportunities to hike, bike, fish and camp, while the colder months bring the snow needed for skiing, snowshoeing and dogsledding. During the summer, spend your time hiking the park’s rugged mountain trails. Denali also offers an amazing chance to view wildlife such as grizzly bears, bald eagles, wolves and moose.
