Experience the Alaskan Denali tundra on the Stampede Wilderness Tour. Look out over Eight Mile Lake, a tundra jewel surrounded by wildflowers. Zoom in to watch wildlife in the valley using provided binoculars or tripod-mounted spotting scopes. Get to know the light-footed mobility of our Argo Frontier-580 amphibious ATVs. Enjoy the view from the exclusive comfort of our Pavilion and Viewing Gallery on the ridge that we call Flat Top. Use our high powered spotting scopes to view giant Glacial Erratics while enjoying a complimentary SUBWAY picnic on each tour. You might see caribou, moose, bear, wolf, or ptarmigan along the way. Or even Denali itself, when the Mountain is out. Early and late season guests might see northern lights as space weather paints the sub-arctic sky. Let Denali Tundra Tours take you there. We host three guided tours daily along the Stampede Trail surrounded by Denali National Park. Custom Tours are available. Weather is NOT an issue on the Stampede Wilderness Tour. We’ll keep you warm and dry.
The Stampede Wilderness Tour takes about 4 1/2 hours, from pick-up to drop-off. After a comprehensive briefing, the donning of your safety gear and becoming comfortable with your Argo ATV, the tour sets out from our exclusive Pavilion & Viewing Gallery at Flat Top, to explore the Stampede trail out toward the famous Savage and Teklanika Rivers. The terrain provides great riding on the tough and versatile, yet tundra-friendly, 6-wheeled Argos. During the tour, there will be plenty of opportunities to stop and take photos or to peer through the binoculars provided with each ATV. The entire tour is narrated by our friendly and knowledgeable guides. Your guides will also set high-powered spotting scopes on tripods so you can get up-close and personal views of any wildlife in the area. Near the end, we return to the Pavilion at Flat top for a relaxing complimentary SUBWAY® lunch, with hot and cold beverages available. There, you’ll also have an opportunity to stroll along the tundra before returning from your Stampede Wilderness Tour.
