Talkeetna to Denali Park

View of Mt. Denali from Talkeetna.

Talkeetna to Denali National Park

To travel to Denali National Park, your motorcoach will head north from Talkeetna.  This trip takes less than three hours and travels on the Parks Highway. The highway borders Denali State Park and offers wonderful views of the Talkeetna Mountains and the Alaska Range. When visible, Mt. Denali, the tallest mountain in North America, is the star of the show. The motorcoach travels through Broad Pass, elevation 2400 feet, a wide mountain pass that features some of the most beautiful scenery along the Parks Highway. Keep an eye out for caribou and moose while driving through Broad Pass. You will pass by the small community of Cantwell before arriving into the Denali Park area.

The Park Connection bus line operates two trips daily between Talkeetna and Denali, both departing from the Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge which is about a mile outside of town. The morning trip is on our “Denali Express” route and connects with busses going to Denali's backcountry lodges, while our afternoon departure is part of our “Park to Park” service. You can choose which route works best for you and book online using our unique online booking system. If you need help with hotel or tour reservations in Talkeetna, we can help there too.
