Q: We are planning a trip to Alaska in July. Can we ride the railway to Denali then take the tour bus from there? And if so, should we make reservations now for the day we want to go or can we just take the tour that day from entrance to park?
A: You would be able to take the train to Denali and then take a bus tour into the park however not all in one day. We recommend at least two nights in Denali – arrive by train, overnight, take a full day bus tour into the Denali National Park, overnight and then depart by bus or train the following day. I would suggest booking the train, hotel, and tour all in advance because availability is starting to become limited.
