Denali Highway Jeep Excursion Tour

Once the gateway to Denali National Park, this 135-mile gravel road is surrounded by pristine nature & is a photographer's paradise. Snow-capped mountains, icy glaciers & panoramic vistas flank the Denali Highway.

During your guided & narrated 100+ mile round trip excursion, there are opportunities to see Denali & wildlife (both weather permitting). New, 4-door, 4x4 Jeeps hug the dirt road, while comfortably seating four adults who can trade off driving. Each Jeep has a CB radio for communicating with the guide so stops can be made whenever desired.

As driving the Denali Highway is prohibited by most rental vehicle companies, this exclusive excursion provides access to more of Alaska's spectacular scenery and wildlife & is a great alternative to crowded bus trips.

Included: Snack & drinks. Car and booster seats are available upon request.

Please note: Must be at least 25 years of age with a valid Driver's License to drive. We will pair parties of one or two with other guests in a Jeep. This excursion does not travel on the Denali Park Road or into Denali National Park.

Sep 2023 - Carole Ann N.

This was a fun adventure on the Denali Highway in a 4 x 4 Jeep. I even was riding with my guide, Bailey. She sure does know a lot about the area, and trees, flowers, etc. I learned a lot and enjoyed my ride with Bailey!

Sep 2019 - Rhonda Y.

Fun excursion and a great way to see a lot of the Denali area without the crowds. Very efficient and organized organization., The jeeps were very comfortable and we made several stops to view the local environment. Only one suggestion for improvement, the guide could talk less to allow those riding together in the jeeps to have some time for conversations, especially at the end of the tour.

Sep 2019 - Linda S.

This tour was beautiful. We saw beautiful scenery and a few Moose. The guide was very good and the jeeps were comfortable. One of my favorite things we did in Alaska.
