Default Denali Activities

We have booked a landtour/cruise late August with HAL. We will have a 'day on our own' at Denali National Park. All the other locations we easy to pick off excursions and acitivies. But, with Denali so vast, it has been difficult to select an activity. We will be at the McKinley Chalet, within a mile of the park entrance. We want to select a company offering a tour of some sort that starts within a reasonable distance of our hotel/park entrance. We open to nearly anything: flightseeing, rafting, land safari (no bus, as we will doing the 6-7 hour Tundra the day before).

As a starting, can anyone who has has this one day on their itinerary throw out a few suggestions.

We took the helicopter tour and loved it. Besides the beautiful views, we were able to get close to some wildlife. (Caribou, Moose, and Bears.) Our traveling companions went river rafting and except for getting a little wet said it was a lot of fun. You can't go wrong at Denali.

Without a car, you are going to be limited. Rafting is OK, be aware where they put in, will make a big difference if you get a float or white water trip. There are plenty of ranger led activities and the sled dog demos, consider any of these. Information is at the visitor center. Flights can be a good choice but I like my McKinley flights out of Talkeetna. Choose carefully.
