Teklanika Tundra Wilderness Tour

We are going to Anchorage in on may 15th and then taking the cruise. There are only 2 tours available on Denail. 1) Teklanika Tundra Wilderness Tour and 2) Denali Natural History Tour.

I saw that people did not recommend natural history tour. How is the Teklanika Tundra Wilderness Tour ? Is there free shuttles running around this time into the park that would be better option.

I was thinking if there is not much you can go inside denali park would it be better to just go to Wasilla or may be Talkeetna & Explore more on the Seward area

You are there too early. Teklanika is only 30 miles in IF that, in your timeframe, you may not have the total access.

I would spend your time in Seward, unless your priority is for flightseeing out of Talkeetna?? Do one day in Anchorage, 2 in Seward. Do your homework, find out what is of interest>> A significant highlight of Seward is Kenai Fjords boat tours, needing at least 6 hours on the water.

Thanks BudgetQueen. Teklanika is 30 miles into the park and that's why i was thinking of going towards Seward instead of it given the short time that we have. Thanks for your feedback.

Is the wildwife that we see on Kenai Fjords boat tours comparable to something we will see denali park ? Also, the wildlife we will see from boat or the tour drops you on land.

More than likely you won't see bears, moose, caribou, sheep, etc on the Kenai Fjords tour--it's mostly a marine wildlife and glacier tour.

Totally different wildlife. Varied marine and birds out of Kenai fjords, land animals at Denali park. You stay on the boat, on a route tour. With the most opportunity on the longest- Northwestern Fjords trips. Be WELL prepared, if prone to motion sickness, I see sick passengers EVERY trip.

Whittier has a boat tour that is will worth the price. We took it twice. You get up real close to the glaciers and you see wild life.

Seward is a great place to visit. Exit Glacier is a state park; it’s free and just outside of the city of Seward.

You also have many boat tours in Seward; we went on a tour and ran across a pod of Orca whales and Humpbacks

We are going on a cruise at the end of May; it will be our 17th Alaska Cruise.

You will have a great time. Enjoy

Without your own transportation, you have to taxi or shuttle to Exit. There is also a parking fee, if you drive. Ranger activities as well.
