Denali Wilderness Lodges
A few extraordinary lodges nestled at the end of Denali National Park’s road make for very different experiences than the hotels near the park entrance. These remote, exclusive accommodations offer an unparalleled sense of adventure and tranquility and are accessible only by flying in while the road construction unfolds, with an anticipated reopening in 2025.
For a lot of travelers, exploring deep into Denali National Park, far from the crowds, sounds like the ideal way to experience the famous park. But not everyone wants to rough it out there — which is why this lodge is the perfect balance, a comfortable perch in seriously remote wilderness.
Kantishna is a historic goldmining district in the backcountry of Denali National Park. Among the most remote areas of the park, you can stay in a cozy cabin and spend your days playing, exploring and relaxing in the wilderness. Kantishna Roadhouse is the only lodge in the area with a full-service saloon.
At Camp Denali, you’ll immerse yourself in a remote backcountry, but with a cozy bed to settle into each night. Take in the quiet of the surrounding wilderness and enjoy the simple, sustainable amenities for around 38 guests. Here, the balance of “light touch on the land” and providing a comfortable stay is perfected. Refined rustic guest cabins, each of which claims a unique view of Denali, sleep from two to six people.
