There are many things to do in Talkeetna – Summer and Winter – no matter what your tastes in adventure may be. Witness the grandeur of the Alaska Range with one of Talkeetna’s many flightseeing services which specialize in tours above Mt. McKinley (Denali) and glacier landings. Mountain climbers and cross country skiers also call Talkeetna home. There are also guided river rafting and jetboat tours available for the adventuresome, or take a historic walking tour through town.
Sport fishing in Talkeetna rivers and lakes is some of the finest in Alaska and the world. In the summer, the Alaska Railroad provides daily service to Talkeetna from Anchorage. Once here, you’re a short distance from the gold mining country in one of the many glacier fed rivers that border Talkeetna. The other outdoor adventure Denali National Park has to offer is unparalleled: Large mammals such as moose and bear populate the park and are high on every visitor's list of things to see.
