4 Unique Activities in Denali National Park, Healy, Alaska

Denali National Park is one of Alaska’s premier tourist destinations because it offers beautiful views you can’t find anywhere else. It’s also the perfect destination for thrill-seekers because of the unique activities it offers. So whether you plan to stay at a local hotel or want to hike and rely on a tent as your lodging, don’t miss out on these can’t miss activities that make the park so wonderful.

What Can You Do in Denali National Park?

1. View Wildlife

One of the biggest draws to Denali National Park is the incredible wildlife that freely roams the lands. Whether it’s on foot, on a tour bus, or on the back of an ATV, be on the lookout for moose, grizzly bear, caribou, Dall sheep, and wolves. The park also contains oxen, deer, fox, elk, and rams perfect for any nature lover.

2. Take a Helicopter Tour

HotelDenali National Park is centrally located, so one of the best ways to experience its expansive vistas is through a flightseeing tour. Soar high above the park in a helicopter or small aircraft to experience the gorgeous views in a fun and exciting way and take in everything this beautiful park has to offer.

3. Go Dog Sledding

If you prefer to stay on the ground but still want to take in as much of the park as possible, dog sledding is a great activity during the winter months. The rest of the year, you can still visit the Denali sled dog kennel for free to view one of their demos and meet the pups who help local rangers protect the park.

4. Explore on Foot

Many local hotels and activity centers rent winter equipment that allows you to explore the park in fun ways. Strap on a set of snowshoes and march through untouched snow, or put on some skis for a cross country adventure that’ll allow you to enjoy close up views of the lower forest or tundra at middle elevations.


Experience all the exciting activities the Denali National Park has to offer by making hotel reservations at Totem Inn in Healy, AK. Located just miles outside of the park entrance, this family-owned and -operated rustic hotel is just minutes from the adventures. Book a room by calling (907) 683-6500 or check out their prices online.
