This is a must-do if you are in the area. Very informative. And yes, you get to pet the adorable puppies. We had a great time here today with our two teenage daughters. We all commented in how much we enjoyed the visit.

Hallo... We are planning to visit Denali on July 01 to July 03, 2017. How far along we have to reserve.? We have about 8 adults and 4 kids. Do you give a group tour and price? We will stay at Denali Park Hotel, 247 George Park Hwy, Healy AK 99743. We plan to rent a car from Anchorage, Should we go by car to your place or get pick up.? Please advise. Thx
