OK so there are two different tours you can take - the normal Denali Park tour or the full Denali Tundra Wilderness Tour. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE listen to me when I tell you to take the full tundra day tour. It takes you about 60km further into the park then what the other Denali Tour would - which means - more to see and more wildlife. Yes it is a long day but it is so worth it. You get up early in the morning and board a bus (yes one of those old school buses) and set out for the day. The drivers have so much knowledge and experience of the park to share its hard to remember some of it! Some of the wildlife we saw was:
Bears (and quite a few of them too!)
Dall sheep
You may even get to see Denaili (Mount McKinley) if it is a clear day. Some of the roads are pretty hairy as you will climb right to the edge but trust me you are in safe hands :-)
The tour also comes with a packed lunch and bathroom stops.
