El monte McKinley, o “Denali”, se eleva en segundo plano, mientras los vehículos de recreación viajan por una carretera cercana al arroyo Trapper

In Alaska’s heartland, you’ll see the continent’s tallest peak, Mt. McKinley, and wide expanses of tundra. The forests are teeming with wildlife and bird life ranging from the formidable grizzly to stately herds of caribou to the state bird, the Willow Ptarmigan. Experience summer’s midnight sun or the winter’s northern lights. Wildlife can be seen on the highway that runs by Denali National Park, carrying visitors to and from Anchorage and Fairbanks. Interior is the original home of Alaska’s Athabascan Indians. Gold miners, farmers and fur trappers later discovered the riches of this region.

KELLY HAYMAKER

My husband and I flew into Anchorage (the first week of June 2007) and rented a Harley. We rode for 7 days and each curve in the road offered the most spectacular scenery I've ever seen. We went fishing on the Kasilof River with guide Mark Glassmaker (whom took the extra time to make sure we caught a salmon). The wildlife tour out of Seward was spectacular. And of course Denali was the ultimate experience.

We stayed in cabins. I booked all the rooms myself and went to the Chamber of Commerce web site of each town we stayed in and researched the lodging in those areas. Everyone we stayed with were very friendly and offered good advice on things to do in the area. I also had reservations for our wildlife cruise and the Denali Park shuttle. It all worked out beautifully.

Also, Alaskans are the greatest people I have ever met!! Everyone was so friendly and more than happy to take the extra time to make sure our vacation was the best ever. We definitely will be back!! ( and p.s. The Roads are not bad at all, we live in Oklahoma and for the most part our roads are considerably worse than any of the roads we traveled in Alaska)
