The Lodge Experience

What activities are offered at Denali Wilderness Lodge?
We have hundreds of miles of horseback riding trails both along the valley floor and up onto the surrounding ridges. There are unlimited opportunities for hiking, both guided and unguided, with many off-trail options. Spotting scopes are positioned in the Atrium dining room to offer a terrific view of the mountain peaks surrounding the valley. Gold panning, photography, horseshoes, nature walks, and time to simply relax in the lodge or on the porch swing are popular options. Natural and cultural history programs are offered in the evenings.

How strenuous are your activities?
We pride ourselves on accommodating most every activity level, from strenuous hiking to relaxing in the lodge. Our program is flexible enough so as to allow you to pick a different level of activity every day.

Are there activities for children at the lodge?
We have a variety of daily lodge activities for all ages and abilities. We welcome children who are mature, comfortable with adults, and physically able to handle the activities we offer. Our lodge is perfect for families looking to experience the wonders of the Alaska wilderness together. Please note that we do not offer specific programming or day care for children. Some trail rides may not be suitable for all ages.

What kind of shape do I have to be in?
Lodge guests only need to be in average physical shape to navigate the network of graveled paths that connect the cabins, dining area, barn, gazebo, theater, and other buildings. The terrain is relatively flat, but there are no ramps to the cabins or lodge. You must be able to enter and exit the small bush planes. Please call us if you have questions about a physical limitation.

Will I have any free time?
There are always activities scheduled during the day and you may elect to participate in some, all or none of them. We do hope you will take advantage of the luxury of time to yourself for a hike, stroll along the river, journal writing, or a few hours with a good book.

What kinds of food do you serve?
We serve a broad variety of healthy and hearty food. Top quality meats and seafood, fresh vegetables, handmade breads and desserts, and a never-empty cookie jar are hallmarks of Denali Wilderness Lodge. Breakfast and lunch are served buffet-style and dinner is served family-style. Many of our guests choose to pack a lunch to enjoy on their hike. We're able to accommodate most dietary requests with sufficient advance notice.

What are the accommodations like?
Each of our 22 guest rooms has two beds. All have electricity, flush toilets, running hot water, a sink and shower. Linens are provided and all rooms, lodge facilities, and vehicles are smoke-free.

Who are your guides?
Our guides are competent, knowledgeable, committed, enthusiastic and friendly leaders with college degrees and extensive field experience. We take pride in our family of guides and in all the people we employ.

Are laundry facilities available?
There are no laundry facilities available to guests at the lodge. If you follow our recommended packing list, you will have the appropriate clothing and personal items to keep you comfortable throughout your stay.
