  • Windows into Wilderness

While we can’t promise or predict when wildlife will show, the Tundra Wilderness Tour allows plenty of opportunity to look for Dall sheep, moose, caribou, wolves and grizzly bears. On days when Denali (meaning “the high one” or “the great one”) is visible, the tour bus travels to Stony Hill Overlook for an amazing view of Denali from base to summit.

When your tour driver is able, he/she will take video footage of animals along Park Road and project these images onto drop-down video screens, featured only our specially designed tour buses. This way you can get a close-up look at the roadside action.

At the end of the tour, you’ll have the opportunity to purchase a “Tundra Wilderness Tour” DVD, which will feature some of the video footage shot from your tour! Since the DVD is created following your fabulous adventure; it will be mailed to your home. 

Passengers must remain on the bus for the duration of the tour, except for rest stops every hour to hour and a half. Tour travels along an unpaved road and all tours go rain or shine-rain does not keep the wildlife indoors!

Tour Restroom Breaks Approximately every 90 minutes
