North America’s tallest peak, Mount McKinley – or Denali as most Alaskans refer to it – is part of America’s wild frontier and yours to discover. A Denali honeymoon is ideal for adventurous couples.
A Denali honeymoon is an outdoors enthusiast’s dream: diverse wildlife, snow capped mountain peaks and rustic living. That being said, couples who don’t enjoy camping can stay in a nice hotel nearby and still experience the wonder of Denali. The Denali National Park & Preserve is located in the Alaskan interior, not too far north of Anchorage and is a perfect honeymoon destination for all types of couples. Denali honeymooners can trek into subarctic flora and be completely immersed in nature with a panorama that few ever get to witness. From rubbing shoulders with locals over beers at a pub to spending the day hiking or rafting, a Denali honeymoon is an one-of-a-kind trip.
The best time for a Denali honeymoon is early September as the summer crowds and bugs thin out considerably. Late June to late August is the high season and campgrounds are packed. Winters are very cold in Denali, which means you definitely should pack heavier clothing. Also, keep in mind that the park buses and other authorized tours stop operating mid-September.
