If there's an ultimate way to experience the Denali National Park and Reserve, it's at one of these two lodges. Guests can revert to summer camp days—minus the sleeping bag—in the rustic log cabins with fireplaces and outhouses at Camp Denali, or choose from slightly more contemporary rooms at North Face Lodge. Activities range from daily guided hikes with wildlife experts focusing on everything from birding to botany, to special-emphasis courses such as literature, botany, wildlife, and Alaska history. And meals are hardly an afterthought here: the breakfast bell rings promptly at 7:30 a.m. and includes hearty pancakes and homemade granola.
