Explore Denali

Tonglen Lake Lodge has become a destination retreat.  Our guests have continually commented that they wish they had stayed longer to have had time to relax and enjoy the place. Tonglen Lake is more than a spot to stay while visiting Denali National Park. Our lodge has become a relaxing retreat; a destination that offers many enjoyable options and activities at the gateway to Denali National Park.

You will have the flexibility to explore Denali at your own pace. We are here to help with your travel plans to make sure you will get the most out of your time visiting Alaska's oldest national park. Guided bus tours, fishing, rafting, flight seeing, naturalist hikes, and several other activities are available through local guiding companies.

Tonglen Lake Lodge is best suited for independent travlers, or groups, who are exploring Denali with their own vehicle. Local transportation services and car rentals are expensive, so we encourage you to rent a car from Anchorage or Fairbanks during your Alaska stay. This will offer the flexibility and variety in your itinerary to make the most of your travels.
