Default Kantishna Wilderness Trails Tour

Has anyone taken this tour? What did you like/dislike about it? It is a full day - 12 hours with a stop at the Kantishna Roadhouse for lunch and other activities. I liked the idea of braking up the day on the bus. If we don't do this tour I am considering the shuttle to Wonder Lake. Any help would be appreciated.

I never recommend Kantishna lodges for a day trip, it is far better on the multiday overnights there. You are NOT going to have much if any time for their "activities" and the ones that possibiliy may be available will be brief and simple. You just do not have the time for the wonderful extended activies available there. Most of your time there is for the lunch. So you decide- are you willing to pay $100 for a bus ride and lunch or a bus ride 5 miles less and bring your own lunch for $42.50 to Wonder Lake???

Forget the shuttle bus to Kantishna- it's all private property and you are limited to wandering the bus stop area, where as Wonder Lake is all park. HOWEVER, I NEVER go to Wonder Lake before mid August- it's just too over run with bugs, so significant that it ruins your trip.

Karen,

Thanks for your reply. We will in Denali 8/21-8/23. Another question - does the shuttle bus drop you off at Wonder Lake and you have to get another bus back or does it turn around there?

You will have about 30 mins. at Wonder Lake with most people taking the same bus- and seats back. There is a shelter where all the buses stop and take passengers up to their available seats. You can ride ANY bus back, including the one you came on.
