Travel deep into the Alaskan wilderness on an off-road safari in Denali National Park. A 4x4 vehicle enables you to reach secluded locations deep inside the park. So get situated and let the bumpy adventure begin. Ride along the Stampede Trail where you may spot caribou, moose, foxes, and even bears. Stop for snacks and hot drinks at a scenic lookout over the park, before your return.

Travis and Stephen made this a really fun and exciting tour. We saw 5 moose in total on our excursion. Stephen provides great information on the area, and all it has to offer. I would recommend going as early as possible in the morning. Great staff and fun way to get the day
