Premier Alaskan Wilderness Experience
For over three decades, the Kantishna Roadhouse has offered our guests a unique opportunity to experience the backcountry of Denali National Park in a comfortable and intimate setting. In 2022, a closure of the Denali Park Road at Mile 42 profoundly affected our ability to access our lodge and we found ourselves pivoting quickly to a fly-in only operation. This change meant that we became an even smaller and more exclusive destination, and that’s how it will be again in 2023. The National Park Service is planning to reopen the Denali Park Road in May of 2025; but in the meantime, our lodge will continue operating by flying our guests and supplies in and out. What does that mean for you, the visitor? It means you have a unique opportunity to experience the backcountry of Denali with just a handful of others! It means that during your stay our staff will be able to give you their full and undivided attention to help you truly immerse yourself in and absorb all that our remote setting has to offer—the peace and quiet, the natural beauty of the flora and fauna, and time to relax and reflect away from the frantic pace of modern life. It also means we can personalize your stay in many ways—from the foods and drinks you prefer to the hikes and other activities you are hoping for. Our guests in 2022 told us over and over again how much they enjoyed and appreciated this exclusive opportunity; and we are confident you will too.
Kantishna Roadhouse offers 3-Night, 4-Night, and 7-Night stays with arrivals and departures every Tuesday and Saturday throughout our season, June 6th – September 12th.
We have partnered with Denali Air to provide flight services for 2023 season.

Denali Air operates from their own private airstrip located at Mile 229.5 of the Parks Highway known as “Denali Private.”
