Eielson Visitor Center Shuttle Bus
66 Miles One Way - 8 hours Round Trip
On a clear day, this 8-hour shuttle bus trip into the park offers outstanding views of Mt. McKinley and the Alaska Range, and excellent wildlife viewing opportunities. Opened in June 2008 the completely reconstructed, Platinum LEED certified, Eielson Visitor Center was three years in the making. The newly constructed sustainable building and all new interpretive exhibits are well worth the visit. Take a hike on your own on the trails around the visitor center, or join National Park Service Rangers for daily guided walks.
