7 Weekend Adventure Trips For Nature Lovers
Hike Amid Caribou In Alaska Denali National Park
Being dropped off in the middle of the Alaskan tundra by helicopter or seaplane is pretty cool all on its own, but hiking close to a herd of antlered caribou pushes this in-the-wild experience into the realm of remarkable.
For nature lovers, the wilds of Alaska have a mystical draw – and 54 million acres of it are run by the National Park Service. Denali National Park, home to moose, caribou and bear and Denali itself, North America’s tallest peak (also known as Mount McKinley), has just a single road running through the heart of the park, used only by shuttle buses.
Experience the rugged beauty of Denali National Park on naturalist-led excursions, and search for moose, caribou, wolves, grizzly bears, and Dall sheep.
People visit Denali National Park for two main reasons
To see Denali (Mt. McKinley) and to view wildlife. While neither experience is guaranteed, your odds of seeing wildlife are good if you know where to look.
80 to 90% of visitors see bears, sheep, and caribou, though often from a distance. 35% see moose (but your chances double in the late season), and only 20% of visitors see wolves.
Up to one million caribou, known as reindeer outside the Americas, graze the grasslands of Alaska, and from April until mid-September is prime viewing season in Denali National Park and Preserve.
