Denali Park Wilderness Dog Mushing Alaska Adventure

Denali National Park: Dog Mushing Adventures on the Stampede Trail

Experience Denali Park in Winter! Denali Expeditions is the only concessionaire licensed to operate overnight trips in the interior of the Denali Park Wilderness. Mush to spectacular Wonder Lake and along the park road corridor - no one else can get you closer to the magnificent North Face of Mount McKinley ! Our trips are fully interactive and Denali National Park provides many options for dog sled travel. From river bars and mountain passes to the Alaska Range glacier system, you will see a piece of wilderness most people will only see in the pages of magazines and books. For the fans of the book or movie "Into the Wild", we are offering dog sledding trips that go to the Sushana Bus along the Stampede Trail. You can choose to visit the bus, or camp nearby.

You'll get fantastic and breathtaking views of the snow covered Alaska Mountain Range with it's towering 20.320 feet high Mt. McKinley. Stopovers are in Wasilla and Talkeetna before you arrive at Denali National Park in the afternoon at 4:40 pm. Transfer to a wilderness lodge and check in.

Day 2:  Dog Mushing

For the guests who are uncertain about winter camping, but want a more in-depth experience than the Sushana River Trip, we offer a trip out the park north boundary along the historic Stampede Mining Trail. This trip is similar to the Sushana River trip, but goes another 35 miles further west into the Denali Wilderness, where we stay at an historic park sled dog patrol cabin on the Toklat River. These two extra days afford guests closer views of Mt. McKinley, along with entering into an area of high wolf concentration.The Toklat River Loop has been one of the most popular trips in our guiding history. After an orientation day at the lodge, we travel west along the Stampede Trail and the park north boundary staying the first two backcountry nights in log cabins. The middle of the trip route is up the Toklat River, into the Denali Wilderness, to the park interior. The return follows the Park Road Corridor east to Denali National Park headquarters, where the trip ends. This adventure gives an excellent mix of open tundra, river bars, mountains, and passes. It also poses some exciting sledding challenges. The Toklat Loop is for people in good to excellent condition, as it has some moderately difficult sledding situations, and elevation gains that require physical activity. It also offers two days of day trips off the main route. The usual day excursions are to the summit of Stony Hill, for an exceptional view of Denali, and a trip up a glacier valley to one of the smaller glaciers descending from the Alaska Range. The flexibility allows us to go where the sledding is best
