ALASKA/TRADING DENALI NATURAL HIST FOR TUNDRA WILDERNES TOUR
HAS ANYONE TRADED THE NATURAL HISTORY TOUR (15 MILE) TICKETS THAT PRINCESS INCLUDES WITH THE GROUND PORTION IN DENAILI FOR THE LONGER 6 HOUR 54+MILE TOUR??
We are staying for two nights at the Denali Pricess for two nights and thought we would go on the second morning, so we have the following morning to relax before we head south to Taklanika.
I have heard that the 15 mile Natural History Tour is so so and that the longer deeeper into the park Tundra Wilderness tour is the one to take. I have read on one of the web pages about people trading the tickets that princess offers and paying the difference. ANY ADVICE??? Thanks..
We went 90 miles into the park, we stopped every time we saw an animal. We also made 4 restroom stops. No restrooms on the bus. We didn't do any other tours at the park. Yes we saw Mt. McKinley, but its only out about 25%of the time. Went on other tours from the ship all were very good.
We will be on the Tundra Wilderness tour in about two weeks. Although I have not experienced it first hand, we chose this over the shorter version at the suggestion of my Brother. He was in Alaska a while back and while some in his group chose the shorter Natural History Tour, he opted for the longer trek and when they compared notes at the end of the day, the Tundra tour was far superior. My Brother and his wife saw quite a bit of wildlife while the others complained they observed next to nothing. (animal wise) I can't wait!
