More about Denali Princess Wilderness Lodge Points of Interest

  • Denali

    The highest mountain in North America, Denali is also perhaps the coldest mountain in the world outside of Antarctica, a challenge even to the most experienced climbers.

  • Denali National Park and Preserve

    Denali National Park and Preserve is home to six million acres, and preserves not only Denali, but also the pristine alpine terrain and abundant wildlife in the surrounding lands.

  • Glaciers

    Glaciers cover one million acres, or one-sixth of Denali National Park. The most massive glaciers in the park drain snow and ice from the flanks of Denali.

  • Nenana River Gorge

    Starting from its glacial headwaters high in the Alaska Range, the Nenana cuts north through the mountains alongside Denali National Park, offering several major rapids and thrilling whitewater rafting.

  • Stampede Trail

    The Stampede Trail was a mining trail blazed in the 1930s. Today, what is now known as Stampede Road begins near the Nenana River and is popular with travelers on foot, bicycle and snow machine.

  • Sled Dog Experience

    Our tours provides an in-depth look at the world of dog mushing and the Iditarod, Alaska's great sled dog race, including the training, racing and breeding of these champion sled dogs.

    Alaska's arctic tundra is found in Alaska's interior toward its northern or western coast. It's treeless and often bitter cold, and dotted with small lakes, or divided into strange geometric patterns.
