Highlights

Avoid busses and crowds by taking the wheel of a Jeep Renegade to explore Denali on your terms! It’s part Jeep rental, part personal tour, and 100% fun! You choose your destination, stop when and where you want, and never feel rushed.

The Denali region has one of the most majestic landscapes on Earth—Lush valleys carved during the last Ice Age, tremendous mountains that reach for the sky, glacier-fed whitewater rivers, and world-renown wildlife viewing, creating a synergy that captivates and astonishes around every twist of the road!

More than just a car rental, this Jeep excursion gives you the ability to get off the beaten path in a rugged vehicle designed for weather-proof safety and comfort.

You will receive a souvenir guide book which details the historic roadways, local attractions, and unique points of interest. There are several different routes we can suggest based on your personal interests, but you have the freedom to make your own as well!

We had hoped for what was stated as off road jeep excursion. We merely drove down highways we could have driven in our own car.

I booked this thinking that this would allow me to get further into Denali park where public vehicles are not able to go. This is not the case. Only buses are able to get further into the park. We did one of the recommended drives, it wasn’t bad, but we could have done it in our own (rental) vehicle. The drive from Anchorage to Denali was just as nice. If you don’t have a vehicle and want to drive around outside of the park, this may be something to do. But if you have your own vehicle, you don’t need this, or want to go into the park, you’ll need to get on the bus. For us, it wasn’t a good use of our time or money. Please note that the actual rental and service was fine. It just wasn’t what we thought it would be.

Pass By: Denali Highway, Between Cantwell and Paxson, AK

Before the “new” highway between Anchorage and Fairbanks was finished in the 1970’s, the Denali Highway stretching from Paxson to Cantwell was the only way to reach Denali National Park by road. Still just a seldom-traveled gravel roadway today, it is renowned for picturesque alpine landscapes and untouched wilderness. This scenic byway was recently ranked #2 worldwide as the “Drive of a Lifetime” by National Geographic Traveler magazine. Besides the ability to view Denali (Mount McKinley) from numerous points, travelers will likely see wildlife along the route. Expect an 80 mile round trip.
