Kantishna Wilderness Trails Announces First-Ever Family Special to Make Denali Backcountry More Accessible to Families

Kids Ride Free to Historic Kantishna Gold Mining District of Denali National Park

Fairbanks, AK (PRWEB) May 05, 2016

Kantishna Wilderness Trails is offering a 2016 family special that allows children from ages 6-12 years old to experience an all-inclusive sightseeing trip to the backcountry of Denali National Park for free with an accompanying paid adult.

The goal of this special program, called the Denali Park Family Pass, is to make the Denali backcountry more accessible to families. The special allows one child to ride free for every paid adult; two additional children can ride for half price. The tour is all inclusive, meaning the park entrance fee, snacks, lunch, and activities are all included in the program.

“It’s surprising how many Alaskans have never been to Kantishna,” said Marie Monroe, General Manager of Kantishna Wilderness Trails and Kantishna Roadhouse. “Our all-inclusive, full day trip is an opportunity for families to enjoy a narrated tour deep into the historic Kantishna Mining District of Denali Park. Families will see secluded natural landmarks and have a chance to spot all types of wildlife without ever worrying about packing a lunch or planning activities, because everything is included.”

Families can expect to see the natural beauty along Denali Park road including landmarks such as Wonder Lake, Reflection Pond, and even Mt. Denali if the weather is clear. The tour makes frequent stops to spot wildlife and see other points of interest. The drivers narrate the entire journey, explaining details of natural landmarks and wildlife in the park. Snacks such as chocolate chunk cookies and drinks are provided along the tour.

At the mid-point stop of the tour, visitors become guests of the Kantishna Roadhouse Lodge where a hot lunch is served. Guests can explore the grounds and partake in the included activities, such as watching a sled dog demonstration or panning for gold in Moose Creek.

The Denali Park Family Pass is offered throughout the 2016 season, from June 4th through September 12th. Due to the length of the tour, children 5 years of age and under cannot be accommodated. Buses operate seven days a week during the summer season. For more information about bus schedules or to request a reservation, call (800) 230-7275 or visit the website at
