Our Shuttle fee to Rail Depot is only $25 round-trip per passenger, including children if they take a seat. (Shuttle times are coordinated with the train schedule). Our base rate for shuttle service is $25 for the first person + $5 for each additional person including children if they take a seat. One way fee. Shuttle only operates 9am to 9pm, no exceptions.
We do not go to train every day, so need advance notice at time of booking if you wish this service and where you are arriving from (e.g. the Northbound train from Anchorage or the Southbound train from Fairbanks). If you show up at the Denali Train Depot with no advance shuttle arrangements, the cost for round trip train shuttle fee is $35 per person.
We recommend that ALL parties planning to stay at the resort, plan ahead to rent a car from one of the car rental agencies in or around Denali National Park. This will keep you from being trapped in the resort and allow you to travel around the park. Due to COVID, most, if not all of the local shuttle services for the park went out of business. Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate driving all parties around the park when our only shuttle is picking up and dropping off visitors at the resort or train station. Please plan accordingly if you plan to move around the park during your stay.

You see more golden eagles in Denali than bald eagles. Golden eagles are more likely to feed on ptarmigan, marmots and ground squirrels. Golden eagles arrive in Denali as early as March. They are called golden eagles not because of their body color (which is brown) but because of some light (golden) brown feathers on their head and neck. They have a wing span of about six feet and you can see them soaring in the wind or sometimes perched on a tree.
