Earlier this month we were given the opportunity to head out on a tour with Denali Backcountry Adventures - although this was gifted to us as part of a collaboration, the following review is our complete, honest opinion. This post may also contain affiliate links, which means we may receive a commission if you purchase a product via these links, with no extra cost to you!
Basic Tour Information
This tour is offered through the Pursuit Collection (who also runs Denali Cabins & Kenai Fjords Tours, as well as many other Alaska adventures!). Although they normally run tours inside the National Park, a landslide has closed down the park road at mile 43 and they have switched it up to offer this new tour to area visitors while the park road is shut down! The tour takes you about 68 miles down the Denali Highway, which is located to the east of the National Park, and towards Alpine Creek Lodge. Here, you'll enjoy your included lunch and have the opportunity to go gold mining, complete a short hike, and snuggle some sled dog puppies while meeting some Iditarod champions at Rock on Racing! You can save 10% of the tour price if you book online, making the 10-ish hour tour $179 per person.

First things first, we want to clarify by saying this is NOT a tour of Denali National Park. This tour follows the old Denali Highway to the east of the park. You also won't have many opportunities to see the peak of Mount Denali during this tour (there was one spot where we stopped to see it in the first few miles, unfortunately we had a cloudy weather day and weren't able to see it here).
