Mountain weather is quite unpredictable. Throughout our operating season, from early June through early September, temperatures can vary from lows around freezing to highs in the mid 80s. Our naturalist-guided hikes explore Denali's trail-less backcountry rain or shine. As the saying goes, "There's no bad weather, just the wrong clothing."
If you are traveling to multiple destinations in Alaska, you may want to store some of your extra bags at the park entrance luggage storage. The cost is approximately $5 per bag, per day, and checking extra bags will allow for more space in your cabin or room at Camp Denali and North Face Lodge. While the accommodations are extremely comfortable, they do not offer an abundance of space for unneeded baggage. Our driver naturalist guides can direct you to the luggage check when you meet them at the train depot.
NOTE: Hiking is mostly on trail-less terrain or primitive trails. Conditions may include gravelly or boulder-strewn ground. Running/walking shoes are not recommended for the hikes. Even if you only participate in leisurely walks, well broken-in hiking boots are important for your comfort and safety.
Note: We do not take credit cards. Please plan to bring cash or check to pay for your purchases.
