Cowboy Junkies Bring the Season to a Close at Kantishna Roadhouse

Unplugged Show at Kantishna is the Final Stop on Their Roots on the Rails Tour


We were thrilled to be a part of the Cowboy Junkies tour with Roots on the Rails this week, which culminated in an acoustic show at the Kantishna Roadhouse. This amazing Canadian band played to a packed house of fans, who had accompanied them over the past week as they traveled and played shows in Anchorage and Talkeetna.

The band members, fans and friends took advantage of their time at the Roadhouse to get out and go hiking, fishing and mountain biking. Cowboy Junkies band member Mike Timmins details their stay at Kantishna Roadhouse on the band’s website.

We could not have asked for a better way to wrap up our 2013 season than by sharing the Denali Park experience with such a wonderful (and talented!) group.

Below is a clip from their performance.

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
