Planning a two-week trip to Alaska this August. We will have two full days to explore Denali National Park. Has anyone been to Denali and taken the bus all the way to Wonder Lake or Kantishna? Is it worth the 11-13 hour round trip? I feel like I would rather be out hiking and exploring than sitting inside a bus for that long!
I have yet to make it to Denali, but have had several friends work at Denali. Its it worth the trip, YES, but if you only have two days in Denali it is a toss up. If going to Wonder Lake or Kantisha are on your must do while in Denali, I would do it. The pictures I have seen make are beautiful, but if there is something else in Denali you would rather do I would that instead and save the bus trip for a longer visit to Denali.
