The tour to Denali National Park was rather spontanious. People we got to know in Valdez told us about it and we decided to go there although it was a bit far from the route we had in mind.


It took us a 9 hour drive to get there and when we finally arrived in the afternoon we discovered, that you need to book a campground in the park at least one year in advance. We tried 4 campsites more along the road, before we found a space at the Denali Outdoor Center.


We were lucky in several ways, as we wouldn’t have imagined how great the spot was!

We did not regret the decision to go to Valdez and actually stayed a day longer than planned. Here’s why.
