Getting Here is Half the Fun

Your adventure begins when you board our bus for the journey through Denali National Park and into Kantishna. During your travel to and from the Kantishna Roadhouse you will have excellent opportunities to see wildlife in their natural habitat. Binoculars and cameras will be put to great use as you enjoy the amazing landscapes and animals of Denali.

Lodge, Cabins and Grounds

As a historic gold mining district that was once home to thousands of prospectors, Kantishna has historical buildings mixed in with modern cabins and an updated lodge. The mix of old and new buildings contributes to the charming character of Kantishna, while the modern cabins offer all of the contemporary comforts you’ll need for your stay. Our spacious cabins are fitted with comfortable beds and private bathrooms, offering a cozy place to unwind after a day of hiking, exploring, or relaxing in Denali.

Dining & Saloon

All meals and snacks are provided during your stay. Enjoy freshly baked treats and scrumptious meals prepared with the freshest ingredients possible. Our full service saloon offers a great selection of fine wines, alaskan beers, as well as traditional spirits and libations. Or, enjoy a steaming beverage by one of our many fireplaces after a long day of hiking and sightseeing.

Alaskan Adventure

Indulge yourself with a hike or bike ride alongside a sparkling creek, a glass of wine on the deck of your cabin or simply some quiet time immersed in the spectacular surroundings. The list of activities at the Roadhouse includes fly fishing, gold panning, sighting wildlife, and many others.

August 24, 2021 National Park Service Announcement
Denali Park Road Closed To All Traffic beyond Mile 42

Due to the unsafe conditions posed by landslide activity the Denali Park Road is closed. The Kantishna Roadhouse is closed for the season. The Kantishna Wilderness Tours bus tour is operating on very limited capacity for tours to Mile 42 through Sept 12.

The Kantishna Roadhouse is an “inholder” business and we must comply with the National Park Service. We are dismayed and saddened that we cannot keep our business open for the remainder of the 2021 season. And, as you can see, we have no choice but to cancel all overnight reservations beginning August 24th and through the end of the season. We will be sending you a cancellation notice and crediting you with a full refund.

Thank you for your understanding. I fully understand that you wanted to be at the Kantishna Roadhouse, rather than reading this and making other plans.

Best Regards,
Marie Monroe, General Manager
