Denali - Fly in/Drive out?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be in Denali for 2.5 days in early Sept. Our innkeeper recommended a fly in/drive out package offered by Kantishna Air. You fly in and get dropped off at the Kantishna stop in the park at around noon and then take the park shuttle out. We thought this would be a good way to combine some air scenery with park travel and would cut out some of the time spent on the shuttle (normally anywhere from 8 - 12 hours total from what I have read).
I'm interested in hearing the opinion of all of you Fodors Denali park fans. Do you think we would be sacrifcing valuable animal viewing/scenery viewing by not taking the shuttle both ways? We are light hikers, so we would probably also like to do a quick trail hike or two.
Thanks for any input!
