The Denali national park is a magnificent area to visit in Alaska. It is also the perfect place for ski touring, which will be the focus of this 7 day adventure. Furthermore, there is an endless list of amazing highlights to see in the park. Just a few examples are the Ruth glacier and the Tokositna glacier. There are also various forests, rivers, lakes and other natural wonders to see as well.

Regarding the possible skiing areas, that is where you will really get to see how huge the Denali national park is. There is an assortment of  different descents in the park, all with varying altitudes. But rest assured, based on your abilities, we will help you choose the right descent. And because we will be hiking for approximately 10 kilometres per day, you will definitely have the chance to find the right places to ski every day of this trip.

Our camp will be less than 40 kilometres from the great Mount Denali (6,190), formally known as Mount McKinley. Hence giving you the chance to gaze at the highest peak in North America whenever you wish.
