This stunning region offers a wide variety of activities including hiking, ice-climbing, wildlife viewing and horseback trekking. Denali is an Athabascan name, which means 'the high one'. At 20,331feet (6197metre), Mount McKinley is the tallest peak in North America, and on a clear day it can be seen from Anchorage, 149 miles (240 kilometres) away. Denali National Park is famous for panoramic views of Mount McKinley and the Alaska Range. A popular day excursion takes tourists on a shuttle bus through the wilderness to see caribou, grizzly bears, wolves and moose.
