Denali Wilderness Lodge

Alaska's Classic Fly-In Adventure Lodge

Denali Wilderness Lodge

"Perhaps the finest feature of the Denali Wilderness Lodge is the opportunity to strike out on our own. Because it sits in a great bowl, ringed by tall, tree-free mountains, we can hike and climb for miles and always keep the lodge's roofs in sight. Freedom with assurance.
We don't need a trail. We pick our way.
We jump across streams, from rock to rock and find a Dall sheep skull with two full-curl horns. We get up above the tundra line, to where the bare earth reveals itself, and where geology has stood itself on end. And when we reach the snow line, we stop and watch the valley, until the comforts of the lodge call us down."

On guided day hikes, our naturalist guides will point out a myriad of fascinating plants such as arnica - a small daisy-like flower that is often used to soothe sore muscles. Animals in the wild are elusive. Our guides will help you understand the important interrelationships of the river valley and the fragile tundra environment to the valley's inhabitants. The resource library in the main lodge also offers excellent books and photo albums about the surrounding area.

Alaska Eveningsspace
Celebrate the midnight sun. Nighttime in the land of the 24-hour daylight inspires visitors to make the most of every hour of every day. Each evening our naturalist guides, lodge staff, or visiting guest speakers present slideshows or naturalist programs in the main lodge. Many guests opt for an after-dinner walk along the river or on one of the many nearby trails. On clear nights in September, guests may even witness the Northern Lights.

Do the unexpected
Throw rocks in the river, run up the mountainside, rock in the porch swing, or just practice the fine art of tundra napping.
