Transportation

Talkeetna is located about 120 miles north of Anchorage and can be reached year round by highway, railroad, and air.

By road from Anchorage you will head North on the Glenn Highway to the George Parks Highway. Continue through the towns of Wasilla, Big Lake and Willow to the Talkeetna Spur Road. Continue to the town of Talkeetna.

Charter flights are available from several air taxis. The Talkeetna Airport has parking available for those flying their own planes into Talkeetna. A Flight Service Station is manned year round.

The Alaska Railroad offers daily summer operations from Anchorage, Denali, and Fairbanks. The also offer limited winter operations to Talkeetna. These trains are the last flag stop trains in the US!

What is there to do in the Off-Season?

Winters in Alaska can be long but there is plenty to do for both visitors and locals. Talkeetna is the perfect location to view the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis), try a bit of snowshoing or cross country skiing, or enjoy a flight over the spectacular Alaska Range.

Mountaineering

Per the NPS Website, climbing Denali is a very serious undertaking and should be treated as such. Denali is an expedition, meaning that the mountain is almost always a multi-week endeavor, which is very different than an overnight or even multi-day climb. All team members should have previous experience in the "expedition environment." Also, Denali is a very cold place. Experience with winter camping in arctic type conditions is extremely valuable and should be considered mandatory. Last but not least, Denali is a high mountain, and some previous experience with altitude and acclimatization is very helpful. The National Park Service offers briefings, maps and firsthand knowledge of intricate climbing routes. Chinook Wind Cabins is an ideal location for pre or post Denali expeditions.

Pet Policy

For our guests with allergies we have a no pet policy.
