Denali National Park

The word Denali means “the high one” in the native Athabaskan language, directly referring to this mountain in Denali National Park that is the highest peak in North America at 20,310 feet above sea level.

There is only 1 road through Denali National Park, the 91-mile Denali Park Road, of which only the first 15 miles is accessible to the public. Beyond that you’ll need to be part of an official tour that’s licensed to traverse Denali’s harsh conditions.

The trouble is well worth it: Denali’s 6,000,000+ amazing acres provide a wide array of unforgettable sights and wildlife that you have to enjoy at least once.
