Denali lodging at its best, Skyline Lodge is the operations base for Kantishna Air Taxi and its crew. Located deep within Denali National Park in Kantishna (Mile 92 of the Park road), Skyline Lodge is the closest you can get by road to Denali’s high peak. We are only 20 miles away from the towering North Face of Denali. This solar-powered lodge can accommodate up to 10 guests in five comfortable rooms. As the only small lodge in Denali National Park, we’ve been able to create a genuine experience away from the crowds, making Skyline one of the most unique lodges in Alaska. Skyline Lodge is the ideal base for independent travelers who want to explore Denali’s rich history, geography, flora and fauna.
Day hiking in the beautiful Kantishna Hills, mountain biking on the Park road and old mining roads, fishing in Wonder Lake, or flightseeing tours can offer spectacular views of Mt. McKinley and the Alaska Range. Many guests enjoy just relaxing in the lodge. Guests also get a first-hand view of the daily lives of Alaskan Bush pilots and crew.
Skyline Lodge offers its guests the use of several common areas: the study area with a collection of Alaskan books and aviation information, the dining room and ping pong emporium, and the two deck levels which overlook Moose Creek and the Kantishna Valley.
Skyline Lodge has five separate rooms available for our guests. Four cabin rooms are furnished with a queen bed and full mattress in the sleeping loft. One room is furnished with one queen bed. Please note that the rooms have no private bathroom facilities. The main lodge just a few steps away has bathroom and shower facilities for guest use.
