Do I need a car?

Well that depends on many things, and can be a complicated issue!   There is NO public transportation available in the Denali Borough. Occasional private transportation options do pop-up, but we do not recommend counting on this.

Some of the local accommodation providers have shuttle services and nearly all excursion operators provide transportation.   It is important to ask when you book.   Many people find it difficult to get around if they are staying any distance from Denali National Park and do not have a car.

Rentals cars are available at Anchorage & Fairbanks airports.   If you will be arriving by train, bus or other means and have decided you will need a car while you are here, you’re in luck!
Keys To Denali is a local rental option.   Book early!

Additionally, Denali Jeep Excursions now does short term rentals.
