Kantishna Roadhouse

Mile 95, Denali Park Rd., Denali National Park, Alaska, 99755, USA

Run by the Athabascan Doyon Tourism, this establishment at Mile 95 on the park road offers an enriching wilderness getaway. You must commit to at least two nights in an elegant log-cabin duplex or fourplex. The Kantishna Roadhouse, a massive log lodge, is where you'll spend your time when not out on adventures. The Fannie Quigley Dining Room prepares family-style meals with fresh fruits, vegetables, and baked goods. If you plan on a full-day excursion, the kitchen will prepare a sack lunch. Activities range from two- to six-hour guided hikes, mountain biking, dog-mushing demos, gold panning, fishing, and—for an extra cost—flightseeing. Cozy up every night with a cup of cocoa and catch an evening program with guest speakers, artists, or Athabascan elders. If you have a big group, the Dog Musher's Hall can handle 35 people. Nightly rates start at $495 per person (double occupancy), but that includes all meals and transport.
